KIC POSTDOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS are high-profile, two-to-three-year postdoctoral positions with significant independence and resources. The KIC Fellows program is designed to attract the best and brightest young researchers in nanoscale science to Cornell. The 2022 application cycle for the KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship for Experimental Physics is now open. The due date for applying is October 14, 2022.
Cornell University's Laboratory of Atomic and Solid State Physics is soliciting applications for the Bethe/Wilkins/KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship. This prize fellowship will provide an outstanding theoretical physicist the opportunity to work with theorists and experimentalists in Cornell's physics department. The 2022 application cycle for the Bethe/Wilkins KIC Postdoctoral Fellowship for Theoretical Physics is open. The due date for applications is September 24, 2022.
Humans have achieved spectacular large-scale engineering feats, but “we are still kind of stuck when it comes to engineering miniaturized machines,” says Itai Cohen, a Cornell University physicist and senior author of a new Nature study describing his team’s cilia chip. Researchers had previously tried to make artificial cilia that worked by means of pressure, light, electricity and even magnets. But a major hurdle remained: designing extremely tiny actuators—the motion-triggering parts of a machine—that can be controlled individually or in small clusters rather than all at once.
