Postdoctoral Opportunity in Experimental Nanobiophysics

A postdoctoral position is available in the Dutcher group at the University of Guelph, Canada to study the nanomechanical properties of live bacterial cells under different environmental conditions and their
response to novel antimicrobial compounds. Extensive experience in atomic force microscopy (AFM) under ambient and fluid conditions, and a strong record of publication in peer-reviewed literature attesting to
these abilities, is required. A Ph.D. in Physics, Chemistry or a related discipline, awarded in the last five years, is necessary. Additional responsibilities will include training and supervision of students, and
preparation of reports and manuscripts for publication.

This project is part of a large multidisciplinary project within the Advanced Foods and Materials Network (AFMnet), a national Network of Centres of Excellence, led by Professor John Dutcher. The research team
includes world-leading microbiologists, physicists, chemists, mathematicians and engineers from across Canada. A description of our extensive experimental facilities for studying large molecules at surfaces can be found at:

The University of Guelph is a research-intensive university with a student body population of 18,000 students located in Guelph, Ontario. The City of Guelph has a college town atmosphere with the big city
(Toronto) only 80 km away. Guelph is in the heart of the largest concentration of universities and industry in Canada, with easy access to the Toronto International airport (60 km away).

Applications should be addressed to:

Professor John Dutcher
Canada Research Chair in Soft Matter Physics
Department of Physics
University of Guelph
Guelph, ON, Canada

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
