Chun-Jen Chen started his PhD program in Physics at the University of Konstanz as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.
His current project is investigating collective behaviors on active Janus colloids.
He will conduct his research under the supervision of Prof. Clemens Bechinger.
Carolina van Baalen started her PhD program in Physics at ETH Zurich as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.
Her work focuses on active colloids confined at complex liquid-liquid interfaces.
She will conduct her research under the supervision of Prof. Lucio Isa.
The ActiveMatter first meeting has been held in Gothenburg, Sweden, on 12-13 September 2019.
The aim of the meeting was to define organizational aspects of the network, its administrative structure and the scientific program of the training events to be held in the first two years.
The meeting saw the participation of the scientific representatives of the majority of the beneficiaries.
Liam Ruske started his PhD program in Physics at the University of Oxford as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.
His work focuses on the non-equilibrium dynamics of active fluids and interfaces.
He will conduct his research under the supervision of Prof. Julia Yeomans.
The new MCSA-ITN-ETN ActiveMatter has started on September 1, 2019, for a duration of 48 months.
The Network focuses on experimental, computational and theoretical aspects of active matter.
The Network consists of 14 beneficiaries and 9 partners organisations, from 9 different countries of Europe and of the rest of the world.
15 ERS (Early Stage Researcher) positions, each of 36 months, will be financed by the action. Each position will be associated to a PhD program offered by institutions within the network.
All ERS positions will be announced on Euraxess.
