Postdoctoral position in Madrid

The Auger group of Universidad Complutense de Madrid (Spain) is seeking candidates for a 2-years postdoctoral contract in the framework of the CPAN CONSOLIDER-INGENIO 2010 program of the Spanish Ministry of Science, co-financed by UCM. Activities of the UCM group include data analysis for both the surface and the fluorescence detectors. In addition, the group … Leer más

POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS to study the biophysics of microtubule motor proteins

POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS are now available at the University of Pennsylvania to study the biophysics of microtubule motor proteins and/or microtubule plus end dynamics using single molecule approaches. A Ph.D. in cell biology, biochemistry, biophysics, biological chemistry,
physics, or molecular biology is preferred. The funded position is part of a collaborative project between the laboratories of Dr. Erika Holzbaur and Dr. Yale E. Goldman, in the Dept. of Physiology in the School of Medicine and Pennsylvania Muscle Institute. The research involves the use of single molecule approaches both in vitro and in vivo to examine microtubule motor function and microtubule plus end dynamics in molecular detail.

postdoctoral positions in ultrafast dynamics in nanomaterials

We have two openings for postdoctoral fellows in the area ultrafast dynamics
in photovoltaic Nanomaterials. Our research in focused on interfacial charge
transfer processes in photovoltaic and photocatalytic nano-materials and at
solid/liquid interfaces. Nanomaterials of interest include semiconductor
(TiO2, CdSe..) and metal (Au and Ag) nanoparticles, thin films, and
nanocomposites. We also investigate charge transfer dynamics on bulk single
crystal surfaces and at single molecule/nanoparticle level to provide
further insight as well as to facilitate comparison with theoretical
studies. We are employing three spectroscopic methods to examine these
dynamics: 1) pump-probe transient absorption spectroscopy in the visible and
infrared in nanomaterials; 2) Second Harmonic and vibrational sum frequency
generation spectroscopy on single crystal surfaces; and 3) single
molecule/particle fluorescence spectroscopy.
