The Non-Equilibrium Soft Matter group of Liesbeth Janssen focuses on the behavior of materials that are inherently out of thermodynamic equilibrium, ranging from glasses and gels to active and living matter. We use a combination of theory, analytical modeling, and computer simulations to study the structural, dynamical, and mechanical properties of such materials.
We currently have two PhD positions available in the field of glassy and active soft matter. We also welcome motivated BSc and MSc students to join our group! Postdoctoral researchers are invited to apply for personal Fellowships; for German scientists, Liesbeth Janssen’s Humboldt fellowship makes her eligible as a host for Feodor Lynen Research Fellowships.
