One research fellowship for Master (MSc.) within IF/00322/2015

One Research Fellowship for Master’s degree holders is available within iFCT2015 research project Ref.: IF/00322/2015: “Engineering controlled motion of chemically active microswimmers”.

A successful candidate will contribute to the development of a continuum model of self-propulsion in liquid crystalline environments.  Then, he or she will apply the developed model to study interaction of a microswimmer with the nematic director field, describing the orientational ordering of the liquid crystal molecules, as well as interaction of an active particle with topological defects, i.e., singularities of the nematic director field.​
