Positions available!

New positions (PhD, Post-Doc) will be available soon at the Soft Matter Lab
at Bilkent University led by Dr. Giovanni Volpe.

The research interest of the 15-person strong group span several areas of
statistical physics, soft matter, optical manipulation, and stochastic
phenomena, including both experimental and theoretical aspects. In
particular, we are currently working on active Brownian motion, critical
Casimir forces, optical manipulation of nanoparticles and cells.

We are looking for highly motivated individuals to carry on their
postdoctoral research within our group.

The positions are related to the experimental study of critical
Casimir forces
(contact person: Dr. Agnese Callegari), and to the
experimental study and control of active matter systems in
complex environments
(contact person: Dr. Sabareesh K. P. Velu).

If you are interested, please send your application (CV and motivation letter)
either to Dr. Agnese Callegari (callegari@fen.bilkent.edu.tr)
or to Dr. Sabareesh K. P. Velu (sabareesh@fen.bilkent.edu.tr)


* A further position is available on a project concerning the
hydrodynamics effects in phase-changing active matter,
under the supervision of Dr. Luca Biancofiore (Mechanical
Engineering Department, Bilkent University).
If you are interested please contact Dr. Luca Biancofiore (luca@bilkent.edu.tr)
