2 Postdoctoral positions in Experimental Soft Matter Physics (Materials Science / Chemical Physics)

s4r-logo-1 hr-logo-1

Positions available as soon as April 2019 for one year. Net salary of ~ 2500 €/month.

We are looking for two well-motivated postdoctoral researchers to join our team and investigate the dynamics of polymer and soft matter confined at the nanoscale level. 

Polymer coatings of nanometric thickness are about to enter in our everyday life in the form of protective layers, stimuli-responsive membranes, components of revolutionary flexible electronics devices, etc. With respect to thin films of inorganic materials, the these “soft” systems are preferred because of easier and more versatile fabrication methods and the lack of degradation within long shelf time.

Recent and growing literature has, however, shown that the properties of thin organic layers prepared via spincoating (a fast and inexpensive method to coat large surfaces) evolve over time. Current models cannot explain the occurrence of such transient phenomena, as their timescales exceed by far the longest relaxation times predicted by the current theories of polymer dynamics.

To understand the origin of these nonequilibrium processes, we will develop experimental methods to characterize molecular dynamics and it evolution over time.

Please submit your application with a detailed CV containing

a) full publication list

b) a short summary of previous research and accomplishments and a short text on future research plans

c) details for 3 contact persons (for recommandation letters), via e-mail to Prof. S Napolitano (dynamics@ulb.ac.be

For more information please contact prof S Napolitano and visit our website at https://dynamics.ulb.be
