The Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM), an NSF-supported Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), announces the competition for the 2017 Princeton Materials Science Postdoctoral Fellowship is CLOSED. Please check back in the fall 2017 for updates regarding the 2018 fellowship competition.

These prestigious postdoctoral positions are intended for early-career scientists with a research focus on materials science and engineering. PhD is required. Successful candidates will be appointed as early as spring 2017 for a full-time, 12 month period as a postdoctoral research associate, renewable annually for up to three years based on performance and funding.

The selected fellow(s) will join the research group of a current PCCM investigator. The current list of investigators and their areas of research, which include topological phases of electrons in materials, surface and dynamics in confined polymers, and the development of ultra-coherent quantum materials, can be found at

Applications must be submitted online at (Requisition Number  1600631).
