Within the faculty of Science and Technology (S&T), the department of Soft Matter is searching for an enthusiastic Assistant Professor in the field of “Active Matter”.
Current research of the department covers a wide range of soft materials and interface science, focusing largely on equilibrium properties and their control by a suitable design of the materials’ constituents as well as external fields. To expand this spectrum of topics, we are looking for a tenure track candidate for experimental research on active matter. The goal is to establish an independent research line focused on the physical principles governing collective motion, dynamic self-assembly or pattern formation in open non-equilibrium systems driven by a continuous flux of energy. The research should be oriented towards molecular or micro/nano-scale systems. Possible topics include functional colloids driven by (electro)chemical stimuli or external fields, active gels, interacting ‘nanobots’, micro-scale biological systems, and active liquid crystals.
The candidate is expected to contribute to the educational program in Soft Matter science within the Applied Physics program as well as other materials-oriented educational programs of the faculty of Science and Technology.
