PhD position in the field of dynamic simulation of colloids

docc_logo

We are seeking a talented student to fill a PhD position in the recently funded Doctoral Programme - Dynamics of Complex Continua (DP DOCC).

The research project will be on one of the following topics:

Non-equilibrium dynamics of colloidal suspensions under strong external driving

We will simulate the nonlinear dynamics of a colloidal suspension in response to an external perturbation in the form of a strong step-strain, and elucidate the evolution of shear stresses. New algorithms are needed to subtract thermal noises of the non-interacting systems for optimization of the signal-to-noise ratio.

Disentangling the noise from the interactions in Brownian Dynamics

In a conventional Brownian Dynamics simulation interacting particles undergo an erratic motion due to thermal noise between collisions. A novel algorithm will be elaborated that allows to directly simulate only the difference between an interacting and freely evolving system thereby basically eliminating all noise and making the relevant physics accessible to simulation studies.

 

For information on application and eligibility requirements, please refer to the DOCC page here.

 

For further details on the research projects, candidates are encouraged to contact Prof. Dr. Thomas Franosch.  

 

 

Bachelors and Masters topics are available 

We have topics available for Bachelors and Masters students! Please see our Research page for information on the type of projects available, and contact Prof. Dr. Thomas Franosch for more details.
