PhD Position in the field of Microswimmers

We are currently looking for a highly motivated PhD student who will join our team which is currently working on artificial self-propelled particles. Using a light-controlled activation mechanism, we are able to adress the particle motility on an indivdual scale which allows to define user-controlled interaction rules in active suspensions. Using this approach, we will study how the cooperative behavior of active suspensions depends on the specific choice of such rules.
