We have several openings in 2020 for PhD and post-doc positions on experimental and theoretical projects on droplet physics and biophysical problems with membrane dynamics. Contact me if you want to join the team or if you have any questions.
There are several oportunities for Master's thesis projects within multiphase flow, soft matter physics or biologically inspired problems. There are also possibilities for internship within the same fields at the Mechanics Division at the Department of Mathematics at UiO.
Nature paper through a great team of collaborators from the Harvard U., Aalto U. and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems. The project became alive in the Aizenberg group and through years of work we now can demonstrate how to develop, mould and control adhesive properties of ferrofluid-infused porous substrates.
Immune cells use membane bound proteins and their dynamic organization for intercellular communication, a process essential for an accurate immmune response. We have developed a new model for intercellular adhesion, highlighting the interplay between passive physics and active biological processes in the transmembrane protein dynamics.
Singularities are common to many problems in fluid dynamics and we investigate a new class of singularities at contact between elastic interfaces.
