She will conduct her research under the supervision of Julia Sepulveda at Elvesys, and co-supervised by Dr. Juliane Simmchen at TU-Dresden.

Sandrine Heijnen joins the ActiveMatter ITN

Sandrine Heijnen started her PhD program in Physics at UCL as one of the Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) of the ActiveMatter ITN.

Her work focuses on controlling and predicting the collective behaviour of active particles while being influenced by external stimuli.

She will conduct her research under the supervision of Prof. Giorgio Volpe and Prof. Phil Jones.

Kick-Off Meeting held in Gothenburg

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.

ActiveMatter ITN has started!

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.
