PhD position: Modelling non-equilibrium CO2 plasmas for solar fuels
Dissociation of CO2 in high-frequency plasmas relies on exploiting vibrational excitation and dissociation kinetics driven by non-equilibrium conditions for electrons in the plasma. Current methods to model this system are based on strong approximations, due to the complex...
PhD Food Chemistry – Revealing polysaccharide molecular structures
We are looking for
We are looking for a PhD student to investigate the chemical fine structure of heterogeneous polysaccharide mixtures using comprehensive LC x LC chromatography with an in-line degradation/modification reactor. The PhD student will set up rapid separation...
PhD position: Valleytronics in 2D semiconductors in High Magnetic Fields
Within a collaboration between the groups Semiconductors & Nanostructures and Soft Condensed Matter and Nanomaterials of the High Field Magnet Laboratory (HFML) in Nijmegen, this project is related to our research on low-dimensional electron systems in high magnetic fields....
PhD position: Understanding Absorption of Light in Solar Cells
In this project, we aim to obtain a breakthrough in the 3D modelling of the absorption of light in novel photovoltaic cells. Absorption in complex nanophotonic media is generally interpreted by considering light to diffuse without interference. Here we take a radically different...
PhD position “How to restore intertidal flats for ecological value?”
Tidal flats and salt marshes are valuable intertidal ecosystems that support rich food webs and may also contribute to coastal safety. Many of these intertidal environments have been lost during the last decades, raising questions on how to manage or restore these valuable...
PhD-position: Statistical physics of machine learning and neural networks
In recent years, methods from machine learning have make great advances to solve difficult problems in artificial intelligence. In particular, (deep) feed-forward neural networks have re-established themselves as one of the most powerful learning architectures. This has led to...
PhD position: Physical systems biology
We have multiple vacancies for PhD and postdoc projects in the System Biology group, where we are combining tools from physics and biology to study the physical bases of behavior in cells and small organisms. Specific projects include:
(1) Superresolution and...
PhD position: Theory of superconductivity
Theoretical study of properties of Majorana states in superconducting nanostructures in the presence of Coulomb interaction and its time-dependent dynamics. Close collaboration with experimental group of Prof.dr.ir. L.P. Kouwenhoven. Full project description can be found here.
PhD position: Inkjet printing (experiments, numeric, theory)
The Physics of Fluids group works on a variety of aspects in fluid mechanics, in particular on those related to bubbles. The focus of our work is the fundamental understanding the phenomena of the physics of fluids, bubbles and jets, which we undertake by...
