Beschreibung: The project aims at developing a new coarse-graining strategy for cholesteric liquid crystalline (ChLC) systems. ChLCs have special optical properties that might be used for sensing or displaying applications. To this end it is important to be able to control the final structure and properties via tuning molecular properties and system and processing parameters. Starting point are simulations on the particle level, where equilibrium properties, like the cholesteric pitch, are mapped out. The coarse-graining then results in a new “cholesteric particle”, that includes the pitch of the underlying cholesteric structure.

Your profile:
You have finished or are about to finish your Master’s degree in the field of Soft Matter Physics.
You are experienced in programming and enjoy puzzling tasks like nailing down origins of segmentation faults. Preferred language will be C++, which we currently use for particle based simulations.
You are eager to reach the goals defined in the project and you will come up with ideas to solve occurring problems.
You like to share your knowledge with students in tutorial groups.

Our profile:
The project is associated with the group “Statistical Physics of Soft Matter and Complex Systems”,
headed by Prof. Tanja Schilling, within the Institute of Physics of the Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg, Germany. We work on theoretical statistical mechanics and develop computer simulation methods to model the properties of soft materials. In particular, we use projection operator formalism, classical density functional theory and Monte Carlo and Molecular Dynamics simulations. The principal investigator of the project is Dr. Anja Kuhnhold. The project is
financially supported by the DFG (German Research Foundation).
We offer access to a coffee machine (as well as a kettle), a cooperative atmosphere and room and space for discussions.
