postdoc optical tweezer for the study of triboelectrification (IST Austria)

Dear Colleagues,

I am happy to advertise an experimental postdoc opening in my group at IST Austria starting in the fall of 2020.  The successful candidate will spearhead the design and construction of an optical tweezer system to study the physics of triboelectrification at the single charge level.  Previous experience working with optics/lasers and especially optical tweezers, as well as a strong physics background, is highly valued.

IST is an interdisciplinary research institute located just outside Vienna.  Though only 10 years old, we already sit at #3 worldwide in Nature’s normalized ranking for research output.  We offer our postdocs competitive salaries and benefits, as well as the possibility of applying to prestigious internal fellowships that can help jumpstart their careers.  Our new physics building has state of the art facilities in a fast growing and highly interdisciplinary and international setting.  Beyond this, working at IST also affords its postdocs the opportunity to live in what is consistently ranked as the ‘most liveable city in the world.’ 

Interested candidates should send a CV (including a publication list), a statement of research motivation/interests, and a letter of recommendation from their PhD advisor to

Do not hesitate to contact me with any questions, and please share this message with anyone who might be interested.
