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.

Our group is part of the Soft Matter and Biological Physics (SMB) research unit at the Department of Applied Physics at Eindhoven University of Technology. We are also a member of the TU/e Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS).

Positions available!

We always welcome motivated BSc and MSc students to join our group. Postdoctoral researchers are also 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.
