Postdoctoral position in soft matter physics - Sofia, Bulgaria

Within the context of the EU funded project INERA "Research and Innovation Capacity Strengthening of ISSP-BAS in Multifunctional Nanostructures" (, the Institute of Solid State Physics (ISSP) at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS) is looking for a Postdoctoral fellow in the field of soft matter physics (impedance spectroscopy). ISSP is a leading Bulgarian research institute in the field of solid matter research and its applications into multifunctional nanostructures. The INERA is an important mean for ISSP to rapidly increase its human and technological capacities, to reinforce its local networks and to deepen its partnerships on a European scale. It will mainly consist in an upgrade of equipment, scientific mobility trainings in leading EU research centres, life-long trainings, partnership deepening and dissemination activities. Application documents: CV, list of publications, names and contact e-mail of two potential referees


The work will be focused on research in the field of complex impedance analysis of nanostructured and bioactive liquid crystals and will require intense interactions with theoretical and other experimental research groups. It will involve: • to develop and conduct laboratory experiments in a team environment via strong collaboration with members and colleagues in a goal-driven development effort; • impedance spectroscopy applied to the study of liquid crystals, nano-materials, membranes, polymer materials and other types of soft matter; • methods of impedance spectroscopy, dielectric characterization, frequency response analysis applied to the study of liquid crystals dependent on the structure of their surfaces, effect of confinement, interaction with the environment; bioactive liquids with particular attention on valuable APIs; • to present ideas and results in effective technical presentations, prepare project reports, write technical papers and contribute to research proposals; • to present results at meetings and conferences. The position is limited to 15.07.2016.


An internationally competitive salary, dependent on experience, will be offered.

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
