Recruiting:

Our laboratory invites applications for Post-doctoral, Ph.D., M.Sc., and B.Sc. researchers. Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to learn about the admission process at Cornell University. Candidates are sought in all technical subdisciplines of fluid mechanics, rheology and soft matter physics. Ideal candidates include those with a strong background and publication record in theoretical, experimental, and computational research. Qualified candidates, please send your Curriculum Vitae to “hormoziatcornelldotedu”.

 

Open Experimental Postdoc Position: Hormozi Research Group, Cornell University 

A full-time experimental post-doctoral researcher position is immediately available in the group of Prof. Sarah Hormozi at Cornell University (https://www.cheme.cornell.edu/faculty-directory/sarah-hormozi).

The project will involve flows of dense non-Brownian suspensions, colloidal suspensions and active matter. Candidates are sought in all technical subdisciplines of soft matter physics and optical physics with a strong background and publication. The position requires familiarity with setting up and working with optical devices from scratch, i.e., skills such as Particle Image Velocimetry, Particle tracking Velocimetry, Advanced Microscopy. The main objective is to establish and set up a new lab at Cornell University and get involved in various fundamental research projects.

Cornell University offers an intellectually stimulating environment with excellent facilities. Incredibly exciting is the opportunity for the candidate to interact with outstanding faculty on campus and scientists at other universities in the areas of soft matter physics and fluid mechanics. The successful candidate will benefit from the ongoing experimental projects at the Hormozi’s lab, research institutes such as the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (https://www.cnf.cornell.edu/) and the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (https://www.chess.cornell.edu/).

This is expected to be a one-year position. However, an additional year will be considered contingent on project performance and funding.

To apply, please send a CV, names of three references, and up to three representative publications to Prof. Sarah Hormozi (hormoziatcornelldotedu) with the subject “Hormozi Group: Experimental Postdoc Position.”

Open Computational/Theoretical Postdoc Position: Hormozi Research Group, Cornell University 

A full-time post-doctoral researcher position is immediately available in the group of Prof. Sarah Hormozi at Cornell University (https://www.cheme.cornell.edu/faculty-directory/sarah-hormozi).

The project will involve flows of dense non-Brownian suspensions. Candidates are sought in all technical subdisciplines of computational rheology and soft matter physics with a strong background and publication record in theoretical and computational research. The candidate is expected to bring enthusiasm, deep thinking, broad curiosity, and creativity to the project.

Cornell University offers an intellectually stimulating environment with excellent facilities. Incredibly exciting is the opportunity for the candidate to interact with outstanding faculty on campus and scientists at other universities in the areas of soft matter physics and fluid mechanics. The project will particularly be carried out in a collaborative fashion with Professors Donald Koch (CBE Cornell) and Franck Radjai (CNRS, University of Montpellier, France). Although the project is purely computational and theoretical, the successful candidate will benefit from the ongoing experimental projects at the Hormozi’s lab, research institutes such as the Cornell NanoScale Science and Technology Facility (https://www.cnf.cornell.edu/) and the Cornell High Energy Synchrotron Source (https://www.chess.cornell.edu/) and collaborating with scientists in experimental physics, notably Professors Guillaume Ovarlez (CNRS, University of Bordeaux, France) and Annie Colin (CNRS, ESPCI, France).

This is expected to be a two-year position, with the second year contingent on project performance and funding.

To apply, please send a CV, names of three references, and up to three representative publications to Prof. Sarah Hormozi (hormoziatcornelldotedu) with the subject “Hormozi Group Computational Postdoc Position.”
