Project title: Wetting properties of micro-patterned glass
Project description: Functional Materials Laboratory (FML) at the Materials Science and Engineering Department at IITGN is looking for an exceptionally bright postdoctoral researcher to conduct interdisciplinary research focusing on soft lithography techniques and dewetting applications.
The project is aimed at micro-patterning the glass surfaces and investigating their dewetting properties via Lotus leaf and SLIPS (slippery liquid impregnated porous surfaces) approaches. The required master moulds will be obtained from cleanroom facilities or commercially or from Nature. The candidate must have prior experience in one or more of these topics-contact angle measurements, lithography techniques, transport phenomena and familiar or willing to learn materials characterization techniques such as SEM, ellipsometry, profilometry, XPS etc. The candidate should be highly self-motivated and capable of propelling the project with his/her own creative abilities and enthusiasm. The project is capable of generating exciting scientific discoveries aswell as technological innovations.
Eligibility: A PhD in Chemical/Chemistry/Micro-engineering
