The postdoc fellow will study the dynamics of complex probes in microrheology when embedded in complex fuids. The aim is to understand, via theory and simulations, what can be learned on the structural and viscoelastic properties of the complex fluids from the forced or erratic motion of micronsized probes. There will be a focus on achieving qualitative as well as quantitative predictions, to be compared with optical tweezer experiments
