Description of the thesis topic

The main objective of the project is to deepen our knowledge of hierarchical assembly and responsive properties of passive and self-propelled anisotropic nanoparticles. These rod-shaped objects possess “patchy” interactions that facilitate self-assembly with a higher level of complexity. We aim at designing new anisotropic responsive colloidal particles and explore their self-assembly at the single particle level resolution. This strongly interdisciplinary project covers a variety of topics including biological engineering (fabrication of functionalized virus particles), experimental soft matter physics (self-organization at the many-particle level) and modeling.

Work Context

The PhD candidate will be part of the group pf Eric Grelet, located at the Centre de Recherche Paul-Pascal (Pessac), and will be enrolled in the PhD program of the University of Bordeaux.
Possibility to have french lectures for foreeign students.
