About the position 

We have a vacancy for a postdoc working in the area of experimental soft matter science in the Soft and Complex Matter Lab located at the Department of Physics, Faculty of Natural Sciences, Norwegian University of Science and Technology - NTNU in Trondheim Norway.

The position is funded by NTNU and the activities of the postdoc will experimental and expected to be associated with a new EU project that is coordinated by the Soft and Complex Matter Lab, which is dealing with “Pickering emulsions for food applications.

Experimental methods that will be utilized in the project are mainly microscopy (optical, fluorescent confocal, atomic force - AFM, electron (SEM, TEM)), Zeta potential characterization, Dynamic Light Scattering (DLS), microfluidic methods. Custom made experiments, such as special purpose sample cells, acoustic or magnetic levitation etc. will be designed and built with the help of   the laboratory’s technical staff, the NTNU mechanical workshop or by own 3D printing.

The project will include X-ray scattering characterization (wide- or small-angle, i.e. WAXS or SAXS) either in the Soft and Complex Matter Lab at NTNU or at international synchrotron X-ray facilities. Neutron scattering experiments (SANS and spectroscopy) will be performed at international neutron facilities, such as ISIS UK.

Starting date for employment in the position is expected to be January 1st 2022.

You will report to Head of Department of Physics Professor Erik Wahlstrøm.

Professor Jon Otto Fossum will be the coordinating scientific supervisor of the postdoc.
