We are looking for a postdoc in Soft Matter and Rheology (experiment) as part of the ERC-funded ExtreFlow project. The goal of the research is to develop a new experimental method for high-frequency rheology, with simultaneous high-speed visualisation of the microstructure. The ideal candidate will have experience in one or more of the following: bulk rheology, extensional rheology, constitutive models, rheology of colloidal gels and glasses, rheo-optics. For more details and to apply, follow this link. Closing date: 30 September 2017.
We study microscale transport phenomena of structured fluids and interfaces. Examples include emulsification and foaming, processing flows for advanced materials, biomedical flows and drug delivery. Our research combines multiple experimental techniques to provide precise, direct, dynamic measurements on the micro- and nano-scale, to derive new insights in physico-chemical mechanisms and continuum-scale mechanics of multiphase soft matter systems.
