REF. 602

The Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH), in the frame of the project ‘Relating the Microscopic structure and dynamics to the macroscopic flow in colloidal Soft matter – MicroSoft’, which is an “ARISTEIA II Action”, is seeking for two (2) Post-doctoral Researchers 



Abstract

ARISTEIES

Job Description
The aim of the project is to understand the flow of highly concentrated colloidal suspensions, glasses and gels under external shear. Emphasis will be given in the elucidation of the relation of microscopic structure, dynamics and interparticle interactions with rheological properties. A synergy of state of the art experimental techniques including macro- and micro-rheology, light scattering, confocal microscopy as well as computer simulations will be used. A key goal is to build new experimental tools such as a versatile optical tweezers set-up combined with a shear-cell for microscopic force measurements under shear and an EWDLS set-up adapted on a rheometer for the detection of wall slip.
 
Requirements
·         Master in Physics/Chemistry/Materials Science/Chemical Engineering
·         Phd in Physics/Chemistry/Materials Science
·         Experience in  soft matter experiments and/or simulations
·         Experience in Rheology and Light scattering
·         Scientific Publications
·         Excellent knowledge of English
 
Location: Vasilika Vouton – Heraklion Crete GREECE
Start Date: 01/12/2014

(Β) The result of the selection will be announced on the website of IESL-FORTH as well as on the website of “DIAVGEIA”

Candidates have the right to appeal the selection decision, by addressing their written objection to the IESL secretariat within three (3) working days since the results announcement on the web. They also have the right to access (a) the personal files of the candidates as well as (b) the table of candidates’ scores in line with the Γ/ΕΞ/4163-1/06.07.2012 document of the Hellenic Data Protection Authority. All the above information related to the selection procedure will be available at the secretariat of IESL-FORTH.

 

After the expiration of the appeal period and the review of the objections by the committee, the evaluation of the candidacies is finalized. Then the committee will ask the successful candidates to accept the position within three (3) working days and to present all relevant documents in original form. In the case that the presented documents don’t match those submitted, the candidates will be dismissed from the procedure as well as in the case of non-acceptance or non-response on time. In these cases, the candidate with the second higher score will be asked to accept the position according to the same procedure.  This will be repeated until a suitable candidate is accepts the position.
