Postdoctoral Researcher Laser-induced Nucleation

Postdoctoral Researcher Laser-induced Nucleation

University of Antwerp

Antwerp, Belgium

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.

Job description

  • You contribute to research in the field of laser-induced nucleation by building a dedicated setup.
  • Project management and the co-ordination of collaborations with interested companies is also part of your task.
  • Part of your job will be the organization and management of project applications within the field of laser induced nucleation and the search for external funding.

Profile and requirements

  • You hold a doctorate degree (PhD) in Physics, Chemistry, or Engineering Sciences.
  • Your academic qualities comply with the requirements stipulated in the university’s policy.
  • Your research qualities are in line with the faculty and university research policies.
  • You are quality-oriented, conscientious, creative and cooperative.
  • You have strong communication skills.
  • You are fluent in academic English (speaking and writing).
  • An affinity with engineering and the skills to build a working experimental setup is a plus.
  • Knowledge of nucleation mechanisms and working with lasers is an advantage.
  • Knowledge of reactor engineering (micro- or millifluidics) serves as recommendation.
