The Savannah River National Laboratory, Process Technology Programs group, is seeking a graduate-level student interested in a 3-4 month summer research position. The study will involve fabricating and characterizing a series of glass and ceramic materials to develop structure-property relations in support of nuclear waste immobilization and sensor technologies. Candidates should have a good knowledge of optical and thermal properties characterization techniques, including but not limited to optical absorption and FTIR spectroscopy, and DSC/TGA. Strong familiarity with the interpretation of glass structure based on spectroscopic data is a requirement. Other requirements include U.S. citizenship and a good academic standing in the graduate school of study. Interested students should send a cover letter and resume to Amanda Billings by March 31, 2010. See for additional information.
