Eric Buhler currently holds a Full Professor position in soft condensed matter at Paris Diderot University (France), at the "Complex Systems and Matter" Institute. He heads the "Structure and Dynamics of Complex Media" group since 2007. In 1996, he received his Ph.D. degree in physics at the University of Strasbourg with Prof. Jean Candau and Prof. J. P. Munch investigating the structural and dynamical properties of wormlike micelles. Prof. E. Buhler subsequently obtained a postdoctoral position (1996-1998) with Prof. M. Rubinstein and Prof. J. DeSimone at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC, USA), where he studied the structural behavior of copolymers in supercritical carbon dioxide using scattering techniques. In 1998, he joined the University of Grenoble, France, where he obtained an Associate Professor position (1998-2006). He spent two years (2002-2004) at the French National Research Center (CNRS) of Montpellier (Charles Coulomb Institute) as a Visiting Professor. In 2006, he joined the University of Paris 7, where he is currently a Full Professor. His research focuses on the structure and dynamics of supramolecular polymers, polyelectrolytes, polymer-nanoparticles complexes, and colloids.
