Looking for 2 ESRs: one theoretical position and one simulation position, both with Paul van der Schoot.

  1. ESR6 will study the effect of the particle characteristics including length, aspect ratio, and flexibility and the system characteristics of interactions and density on the structure and single-particle dynamics of dispersions of rod-like particles in highly ordered phases. The ESR is to perform Brownian dynamics simulations. The successful ESR must have a Master’s degree or equivalent in physics, physical chemistry or chemical engineering, an interest in statistical mechanics, soft matter, and an affinity to particle-based computer simulations.

  2. ESR7 will investigate the kinetic pathways that dominate temporal network formation in dispersions of rod-like particles, the role of translational and/or rotational motion, the structure of the clusters for various types of interaction and external fields, flow and the proximity to liquid-crystalline phases. The ESR is to develop a dynamical connectedness percolation theory and perform computer simulations. The successful ESR must have a Master’s degree or equivalent in physics, physical chemistry or chemical engineering, an interest in statistical mechanics, soft matter and liquid-state theory.
