2 PhD projects in Soft Matter Physics: theory and experiment of self-assembling patchy virus rods (Paris & Bordeaux, France)

We are advertising 2 PhD projects in the Soft Matter groups of the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (Orsay, France) and the Centre de Recherche Paul Pascal (Bordeaux, France). We have funded positions for both an experimental candidate(Bordeaux) and a theoretical one (Orsay).

The project concerns a collaborative study of passive and active self-assembly of patchy colloidal rods and aims to combine experiment, theory and computer simulation.

The positions are available in the fall of 2019.

Informal enquiries can be sent to Rik Wensink ([email protected]) and Eric Grelet ([email protected]).
