Postdoc on modelling complex colloidal mixtures for use in bionic muscle engineering (Paris-Saclay, France)

We have an open PDRA position (fully funded, four years) on biocompatible stimuli-responsive polymer/colloid mixtures at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides in Orsay, France funded by the European Innovation Council (EIC) through a Pathfinder Open research grant. This grant was awarded to a research consortium composed of groups from Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands), The Adolphe Merkle Institute in Fribourg (Switzerland), CNRS/University Paris-Saclay (France), and University of Rome “Tor Vergata” (Italy). The consortium will be coordinated by the “Veltha” association from Brussels (Belgium).

This research will be carried out at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides which falls under the auspices of the University Paris-Saclay and the CNRS. The research project will be supervised by dr. Rik Wensink. The starting date is 1 June 2022, or soon after.

The candidate should have a PhD degree (or an equivalent university degree) in (Applied) Physics, Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, Materials Science, or related disciplines.
