Job 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) computer simulation models.

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.


Job requirements

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.


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:
