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.

Our group is embedded within the Theory of Polymers and Soft Matter (TPS) cluster at the Department of Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology.

Positions available!

We have 2 PhD positions available in the fields of vitrimer science (funded via VITRIMAT) and cancer metastasis (funded via NWO ENW-GROOT). 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.
