OFFER DESCRIPTION

The Magnetic soft Matter Group (http://www.ecm.ub.es/~ptierno/index.html) invites applications for a postdoctoral position to a motivated candidate with a suitable background in the field of soft condensed matter physics at the University of Barcelona, Spain (PI: Dr. Pietro Tierno).

The position will be associated with a recently funded project form the European Research Council, titled “ENFORCE: ENgineering FrustratiOn in aRtificial Colloidal icEs: degeneracy, exotic lattices and 3D states”. The Project’s goal is to power a series of experimental research lines based on the combined use of magnetic and optical forces and targeting geometric frustration in soft matter systems, addressing both fundamental and applied issues in the field.

The candidate will be involved in one (or more) growing/running experiments. In particular, (s)he will work on one (or more) of the following topics:

- use of a preexisting laser tweezers set-up incorporating acousto-optic-deflectors to manipulate magnetic/non-magnetic particles

See the work: Antonio Ortiz-Ambriz et al. Soft Matter 14 5121-5129 (2018)

- use of a preexisting experimental set-up to conduct research on transport of magnetic colloids above periodic potentials

See the work: R. L. Stoop et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. 124 058002 (2020).

- Dynamics of field driven propelling magnetic swimmers

See the work: H. Massana-Cid et al. Nat. Commun. 10, 2444 (2019).

The postdoc will have the possibility of mentoring undergraduate students, and to teach if (s)he desire.
