For a project in cooperation with Janssen Pharmaceutica N.V., the iPRACS research group at the Faculty of Applied Engineering, in cooperation with the ECM research group of the department of Physics in the Faculty of Science, are looking to fill a postdoc position on a 6 month FTE project.
The project concerns Non-Photochemical Laser Induced Nucleation, a proposed technique for nucleation supersaturated solutions reliably with laser light. A literature search will quickly show that this subject is ill-understood, and the project proposes a solution for two of the main issues – how to get reliable and statistically significant data on nucleation, and how to implement the technique in practice.
We are looking for a PhD graduate who loves a challenge and works independently, is meticulous in documenting the procedures and steps taken, and has the skills to build experimental setups. The ideal candidate is well-versed in statistics, has experience with the operation of lasers and has experience with micro- and/or millifluidics. Experience with laser-induced nucleation is a plus.
