Predoctoral Researcher – Magnetorheological fluids

Job offer: Predoctoral Researcher - Magnetorheological fluids

Characteristics:
BCMaterials is searching for a motivated Predoctoral Researcher for one year (extensible) research and development in Magnetorheological fluids. The research program consists in the synthesis and characterization of magnetic nanoparticles (MNP) for application in magnetic fluids. The first objective of this research will be the development of novel MNP with high magnetization in the nanometric range. The second objective would be the formulation of magnetorheological fluids with great stability and high performance for dampers tuned by magnetic field.

Imaging how magnetism goes surfing

  • Using ALBA’s synchrotron light, researchers have been able to visualise deformation (sound) waves in crystals and measured the effect on nanomagnetic elements.
  • The study, published today in Nature Communications, uses the accelerators’ time structure to record time resolved images with a resolution of 80 picoseconds.
  • The methodology offers a new approach for analysing dynamic strains in other research fields: nanoparticles, chemical reactions, crystallography, etc.

Iron oxide nanoparticles stress the cells

ICMAB researchers lead a study on the toxicity of iron oxide nanoparticles based on the analysis of specific genetic markers linked to nanotoxicity in the C. elegans organisms.

Part of the experiment, published in the journal Nanotoxicology, has been carried out at the ALBA Synchrotron, in its infrared light MIRAS beamline. The study suggests that nanoparticles can be captured by intestinal cells in their interior, they can interact with cell lipids, and they can activate cellular mechanisms of oxidative stress.

1 PhD researcher position in the Inorganic Materials & Catalysis Laboratory

Description of Group/Project:

The Inorganic Materials & Catalysis Laboratory Group (LMI) is focused on the chemistry of boron clusters. Its geometric forms and the fact that they are made of a semi-metal, Boron, give them unique properties largely unexplored. Today, the chemistry of boron clusters, has achieved a sufficient degree of maturity that has led to new clusters.

The group is looking for a PhD Researcher to participate in the development of a National project entitled Boron cluster based materials for sustainable energy and environmental applications” with Prof. Clara Viñas and Dr. Rosario Nuñez as Principal Investigators.
