Title: Postdoc opening in microfluidics and rheology

A postdoctoral research position with Professor Amy Shen is available in the Micro/Bio/Nanofluidics Unit at OIST in Okinawa, Japan (https://groups.oist.jp/mbnu).

The successful candidate will join a very active interdisciplinary group in microfluidics and rheology, with emphasis on experimental research of interfacial dynamics in complex fluids (i.e., polymer/wormlike micellar solutions and suspensions). The position is initially for one year and can be extended to 2 more years based on performance and mutual agreement. The position will start as early as December 1, 2016.

Key Requirements

Candidates should have a PhD in chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering physics, or a related discipline. Prior experience in experimental rheology, micro/nanofluidics, micro/nanofabrications, and flow visualization is preferred. Candidates will work in a multidisciplinary group of engineers, physicists, chemists, and biologists. Peer-reviewed publications in quality journals are a must.
