Open Positions

Research Postdoctoral Scholar in Soft Matter

This position has been filled

Syracuse University Physics department invite applications for a research postdoctoral position to work on theoretical and/or computational studies of the statistical mechanics of graphene (one or two openings). The first position will be joint between Mark Bowick (Syracuse) and David Nelson (Harvard) and will be part of a larger collaborative Syracuse-Harvard-Cornell project with Itai Cohen and Paul McEuen (Cornell), funded by a DMREF grant from the NSF. This is a two year position, with third year by mutual consent. A second position is possible with additional funds from the Syracuse Soft Matter Program and such a candidate would have the opportunity to work with additional group members Lisa Manning, Cristina Marchetti and Jen Schwarz. The focus of this position would be on developing an understanding of the effect of thermal fluctuations on graphene with a variety of geometries, including folded (origami) and cut (kirigami) sheets.
