Computational soft matter physics / Janssen / Eindhoven Netherlands
Project description The PhD project will focus on aging behavior in active glasses. This is a new topic that uniquely combines multiple aspects of non-equilibrium physics, and which will be studied using (coarse-grained) particle-resolved computer simulation models. For a proof-of-principle study on this topic, see our recent paper [Janssen et al., Nature Scientific Reports 7, 5667 (2017)].
The PhD project will be carried out in the Non-Equilibrium Soft Matter group, which is part of the Theory of Polymers and Soft Matter division at the Department of Applied Physics, under the supervision of Dr. Liesbeth Janssen.
Profile We are looking for a talented and motivated candidate with a Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Mechanical Engineering, Biophysics, or a related subject. Experience with statistical physics, computer simulation methods, and programming is an advantage. Affinity with numerical simulations, as well as good knowledge of spoken and written English, are essential.
Application Applications should include a cover letter, full curriculum vitae, academic transcripts, and contact details of at least two references. Application documents should be uploaded in the online application form. Selection will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Conditions of employment We offer a fixed-term, 4-year PhD position at Eindhoven University of Technology, a dynamic and ambitious university in the heart of the Dutch high-tech industry. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labor Agreement for Dutch Universities, including: – A gross monthly salary between € 2325,- (first year) and € 2972,- (last year); – Additionally, 8% holiday and 8.3% end-of-year annual supplements; – A minimum of 41 holidays per year (excluding bank holidays, based on a full-time employment of 40 hrs/week); – Additional benefits, including excellent technical infrastructure, child care, holiday savings schemes, and sports facilities; – Assistance for finding accommodation; – Personal development program to develop your social and communication skills (see www.tue.nl/PROOF3TU).
