An announcement of a PhD position in active matter in Oslo (there are
related opportunities at other locations within the same network
I would like to bring to your attending a new PhD opportunity on active
matter research at the University of Oslo. It would be very helpful if
you could share this among your students or with other research groups
where students are interested in pursing a PhD on this topic
and in Norway.
This position is about studying collective effects in active matter due
to hydrodynamic interactions, in particular in the presence of turbulent
flows. Given the computational complexity of the underlying equations,
we are looking for students with a strong background in computational
physics. However, there will also be the opportunity for building
computational skills during this project. That is because this is part
of a large international Marie Curie PhD program (ComSci
<https://www.mn.uio.no/compsci/english/>) that aims at training PhD
students in computational science while researching on various topics.
As part of this program, I have proposed two research topics, one of
them being this one on active matter.
More info on how to apply for any of the ComSci PhD fellowships can be
The deadline for this position is *January, 3 2021*.
Thank you for spreading the word to potential candidates!
