Job offer: Predoctoral Researcher - Magnetorheological fluids
BCMaterials is searching for a motivated Predoctoral Researcher for one year (extensible) research and development in Magnetorheological fluids. The research program consists in the synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) for application in magnetic fluids. The first objective of this research will be the development of novel MNP with high magnetization in the nanometric range. The second objective would be the formulation of magnetorheological fluids with great stability and high performance for dampers tuned by magnetic field.
Outstanding candidates are sought for a unique anticipated experimental postdoctoral opportunity to characterize and understand phase formation in bulk ferromagnetic alloys. The successful candidate possesses a doctorate degree in Physics, Materials Science or a related field and has knowledge of magnetism, metallurgy and nanoscience. It is required that he or she possess expertise in a majority of the following areas: magnetometry, kinetics of phase
transformations, force microscopy, x-ray diffraction, thermal analysis. Experience with facilitybased scattering probes is a plus.
Description of Group/Project:
The Inorganic Materials & Catalysis Laboratory Group (LMI) is focused on the chemistry of boron clusters. Its geometric forms and the fact that they are made of a semi-metal, Boron, give them unique properties largely unexplored. Today, the chemistry of boron clusters, has achieved a sufficient degree of maturity that has led to new clusters.
The group is looking for a PhD Researcher to participate in the development of a National project entitled “Boron cluster based materials for sustainable energy and environmental applications” with Prof. Clara Viñas and Dr. Rosario Nuñez as Principal Investigators.
