The Physics Department at UC Merced announces an open position for a postdoctoral research
scholar with expertise in nonlinear dynamics and chaos. The funded project concerns the dynamics
of swimming agents in (potentially chaotic) fluid flows. The successful candidate will work under
the guidance of Prof. Kevin Mitchell. This work involves a collaboration with Prof. Tom Solomon
at Bucknell University, and part of the postdoc's time will be spent at Bucknell during the summer,
helping to mentor undergraduates. The successful candidate will have demonstrated expertise in
nonlinear dynamics and will have a strong record of independent, creative research. Candidates
with experience in chaotic transport in fluids are particularly encouraged to apply. The successful
candidate should have a recent doctoral degree that, owing to the interdisciplinary nature of this
work, could be in a number of different disciplines, including Physics, Mathematics, and Engineering.
Interested individuals may contact Dr. Mitchell directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
