Postdoctoral Researcher in Physics

Postdoctoral Researcher in Physics

University of Jyväskylä - Department of Physics

Jyväskylä, Finland

We are looking for a highly motivated and enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher to join our research group to work in the Nanoscience Center in an interdisciplinary project combining experimental nanophysics and microbiology. We aim to build and measure novel nanostructures using self-organizing, ordered bacterial colonies, and apply them in the field of metamaterials to control heat and light (phonons and photons).

The main goals of the project are:

  • To control bacterial biofilm growth in such a manner that ordered 3D micron-scale microbial colonies are formed;
  • To fabricate thermal conductance and thermal radiation measurement samples using the bacterial colonies and advanced nanofabrication techniques;
  • To measure the modified phononic and photonic response of structures, at cryogenic temperatures for phononics, and at room temperature for photonics.

The duties, qualification requirements and language skills of postdoctoral researcher are stipulated by the University of Jyväskylä Regulations and language skills guidelines. The postdoctoral researcher is expected to have good skills in English language.

A suitable candidate will have a PhD degree, or be about to obtain a PhD in experimental physics, with experience in collaborative projects in microbiology considered a big bonus. Experience in working in a clean room environment is a requirement. Candidates with practical experience with advanced nanofabrication techniques such as electron- and ion-beam lithography and microscopy, 3D direct laser writing and plasma etching are particularly highly valued, as is experience in cryogenic measurements. Practical familiarity with microbiological techniques is also relevant, in particular experience with electron- and/or ion beam microscopy of delicate biological samples (including sample preparation).
