OPEN POSITIONS

RA Graduate Student and Post Doc

Nanometer scale mechanical, chemical and physical properties of surfaces and liquid-solid interfaces

Here in the picoForce Laboratory, we study interaction forces at solid and liquid interfaces. Interaction forces can be friction forces, van der Waals forces, hydrophobic forces, capillary forces, bond forces, and more. These studies have a strong impact in nanotechnology, atmospheric sciences, biology, nano and bio-mechanics...
