Open Positions at the NAM

We are currently looking for talented and motivated collaborators with the following profiles.

If you are interested by one of these positions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

In the framework of an ambitious European project in which we are developing a large research program on the utilization of optical forces in plasmonic systems to control self-assembly at the nanoscale.

Plasmonic trapping

(several post-doc positions)

Several post-doc positions are available for leading our experimental effort in plasmonic trapping. We are seeking enthusiastic collaborators with proven scientific record in the field of optical tweezers, plasmonic trapping, optical forces, nanotechnology and surface chemistry.

Requirements: Completed PhD with a solid publication record. Good sense of physics and creativity, ability to focus on a project and to work within a very international team.

Theory of plasmonic trapping

(PhD student)

This position is for the modelling of optical forces in plasmonic systems and shall help guide and support our experimental effort. Quite refined effects should be investigated considering a broad variety of electromagnetic forces ranging from optical forces to van der Waals interactions and dielectrophoresis.

Requirements: Very solid theoretical background with a good sense of physics and creativity. Proven ability in numerical modelling and computing. Completed studies in physics, electrical engineering or related fields.
