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, computer simulations, and machine-learning methods to study the structural, dynamical, and mechanical properties of such materials.
We have a PhD position available in the field of cancer metastasis (funded via NWO ENW-GROOT), and a 2-year postdoc position in theory, simulation, and machine learning of the glass transition. Feel free to contact me for more information.
We always 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. If you are interested in doing a research project, please feel free to contact me.
