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 ) 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 found here
The deadline for this position is January, 3 2021.
Thank you for spreading the word to potential candidates!
