Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate in the group of Sambeeta Das, in the Dept of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Delaware. The project is for synthesizing active colloids for studying their self-assembly behavior. Active particles such as swimming bacteria or self-propelled colloids spontaneously assemble into large-scale dynamic structures. This project will focus on designing and synthesizing different self-propelled colloids and experimentally study the collective dynamics of such active colloids under well-defined and controllable conditions such as particle density, activity and locomotion type.


The position is funded by an National Science Foundation Grant.


The successful candidate must have completed a PhD in the area of Materials Science or Chemical Engineering or Chemistry or Physics  and have expert knowledge and research experience in the area of soft matter, interfacial chemistry, colloids and interface science. The candidate must have a track record of publication of research findings in peer reviewed journals and have experience liaising and collaborating with external agencies. They must have high-level communication and interpersonal skills and be able to work collaboratively with colleagues from a multidisciplinary backgrounds.


The start date is October 15, 2020 though later dates can be negotiated as well. The project is for one year with the possibility of renewal for another year.
