Project: Surfaces with liquid and dust repellency
We solicit applications for a postdoctoral position in Professor Himanshu Mishra’s research Group (Interfacial Lab) at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Saudi Arabia (https://interfaciallab.kaust.edu.sa).
Description: Creating surfaces that repel dust could dramatically improve the energy efficiency of solar cells and reduce cleaning costs for buildings. With our group’s expertise in biomimetics, micro and nano textured surfaces, liquid repellency, and interfacial electrification, we are investigating this problem.
Physicists, electrical engineers, mechanical/materials/chemical/aeronautics engineers are encouraged to apply.
