Scolnik Yosef

I am an experienced researcher-both in basic and applied research.
My main strengths are in finding original solutions, and in interdisciplinary projects, where the merging of knowledge from different areas is needed.
I have a lot of experience in assembling and conducting experiments.
I am a quick learner.
As can seen in my C.V. I worked in several subjects:
-Basic Chemistry, symmetry and chirality.
-Organic preparative industrial and academic chemistry
-Use and improvement (by carbon nanotubes) of AFM in biology, research of the Nuclear Pore Complex.
-Chemistry, Physics and Electrochemistry of ceramic superconductors.
-Radiation interaction with matter, Scintillation, physics and chemistry of the organic solid state.
-Thermal batteries and solid state reactions.

1988-93  Postdoctoral position at the Dept. of Structural 
Chemistry, Weizmann Institute

1980-88  Instructor at the Dept. of Nuclear Engineering
Ben-Gurion University

1976-80  Industrial Chemist at “Chemada”
Position: Pilot Plant Manager, Research  Chemist

In this factory I acquired an extended Industrial experience
The factory produces sophisticated Bromine organic compounds.
My duties included almost every aspect of the process:
-Reactor and production work
-Assembly of glass columns and utilities
-Analytical work
-basic Chemical research-improvement of processes
-Scaling up (Pilot plant)
I was also involved in the planning of a new factory.
