The Non-Equilibrium Soft Matter group employs a combination of theory, analytical modeling, and computer simulations to study the structural, dynamical, and mechanical properties of materials that are inherently out of equilibrium.Read more
Active materials are composed of particles that can convert energy into autonomous motion. This renders them intrinsically far from…
Virtually all liquids can undergo a transition toward a glassy (i.e. amorphous solid) phase when cooled to below their melting temperature.
Smart and responsive materials
The living cell represents a magnificent example of responsive, smart, and programmable matter, combining the ability to sense changes in…
We have 2 PhD positions available in the fields of vitrimer science (funded via VITRIMAT) and cancer metastasis (funded via NWO ENW-GROOT). Feel free to contact me for more information.
We always welcome motivated BSc and MSc students to join our group. Postdoctoral researchers are invited to apply for personal Fellowships; for German scientists, Liesbeth Janssen’s Humboldt fellowship makes her eligible as a host for Feodor Lynen Research Fellowships. If you are interested in doing a research project, please feel free to contact me.
