Graduate Research Assistant Opening

The Daniels Lab has an opening for a graduate research assistant starting Fall 2016 (or January 2017).

This RA position would fund work to build a new experiment on vibrated films, and conduct experiments on the stabilization of thin fluid layers under vibration and in the presence of surface-tension altering surface molecules (particularly lipids). The image at left provides an example of the types of techniques we use. We perform fluorescent visualization (green) of a molecular-scale lipid layer spreading on a fluid surface, and the red line is a profile of the underlying fluid surface.
