Soft condensed matter physicist for a tenure-track position

Syracuse University Physics Department is looking for an experimental soft condensed matter physicist for a tenure-track position. The department ( ) has hired several new faculty members in recent years in theoretical and experimental condensed matter physics and biophysics and plans to continue in this direction. We are especially interested in candidates with research interests in soft condensed matter and biological physics. We currently have a strong group of five theorists (Mark Bowick, Cristina Marchetti, Alan Middleton, Jen Schwarz and Sean Xing) working on soft matter, as well as experimental strength in biophysics (Liviu Movileanu and Ken Foster) and hard condensed matter physics (Britton Plourde and Eric Schiff). In addition, the University has begun an expansion in the area of biomaterials, with the creation of a new Biomaterials Institute headed by Pat Mather, formerly at Case Western ( The university has been a leader in promoting innovative spousal hiring initiatives, to help address the "two-body problem" as it arises.

  • The cylindrical superstructures are composed of silver nanoparticles with V-shaped amphiphilic arms. The short rod-like and spherical assemblies are made of gold nanoparticles with the same V-shaped amphiphilic arms.  The self-assembly occurs upon slow addition of water to solution of nanoparticles in organic solvent called tetrahydrofuran. The resulting mixture is then dialyzed against pure water in order to remove organic solvent and obtain a pure aqueous solution of the superstructures (they remain in water without any precipitation, just like micelles).
