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 soft and active matter systems, addressing both fundamental and applied issues in the field.

The candidate will be involved with a running experimental system based on the use of a pre-existing laser tweezers set-up incorporating acousto-optic-deflectors to

manipulate magnetic/non-magnetic particles
