Call for open position(s) for young scientists
(PhD and post-docs level) to collaborate within our proyect:Nanoscale
characterization of bio-wetting and its implication for plant
growth and resilience (NanoBioWet)
The goal of the overall project is to extend the power of surface
characterization techniques that are well established in Material
Science, to leaf surfaces relevant for Plant Science and Agriculture.
This project is based on recent work where we showed that the difference
between the Rose Petal and the Lotus Effects cannot be simply explained
via surface roughness and has a key contribution of surface chemistry:Almonte
L., et al. (2022). Rose petal effect: A subtle combination of
nano‐scale roughness and chemical variability.
