A postdoctoral position is available at the group of Molecular Materials, Department of Applied Physics (School of Science) at Aalto University.
Our research focuses on developing materials with novel functionalities, designed from the molecular level. Our highly interdisciplinary team provides an inspiring environment for international researchers from different fields to broaden their perspective and to get involved in intriguing cutting-edge research.
We are looking for a postdoctoral researcher to work with us on developing materials inspired by classical conditioning, involving synthesis of light-responsive molecules, metal nanoparticles and responsive hydrogels. The project will be based on our previous work (Nat Commun 10, 3267 (2019)).
We offer a highly interdisciplinary working environment, with challenging and interesting topics related to self-assembly of responsive nanoparticles, intelligent hydrogels, biomimetic materials, etc. In return, we would like the candidate to have:
