15 PHD positions in Nanotrans Training Network
NANOTRANS (Transport of Soft Matter at the Nanoscale) is a new Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Training Network, involving ten universities and research organizations, as well as two industrial companies across Europe. The scientific objective of NANOTRANS is to obtain a fundamental understanding of the transport of fluids and colloids at the nanoscale. We will use multiscale modelling approaches and state of the art experimental techniques to address a broad range of topics in nanofluidics, phoretic flow, electrokinetics, liquid crystal and polymer flow.
The Boltzmann Medal for 2016 will be awarded to Daan Frenkel and Yves Pomeau.
The Boltzmann Award was instituted by the Commission on Statistical Physics of the IUPAP to honor outstanding achievements in Statistical Physics. It is presented by the Commission at the STATPHYS meeting and is awared in 2016 to Daan Frenkel and Yves Pomeau. The ceremony will take place in Lyon on July 20th.
