Non-equilibrium Processes in Physics and Biology

Vienna Doctoral School in Physics    

This school, organized with the additional support of the Vienna Doctoral School in Physics (VDSP), is part of the ESI thematic program: Linking Microscopic Processes to the Macroscopic Rheological Properties in Inert and Living Soft Materials and aims at providing foundational lectures and discussions in Soft Matter Physics and Biophysics to early career researchers, including PhD candidates, postdocs, and exceptionally motivated MSc students.

Topics include self-assembly, dynamics, rheology of soft materials, biological tissues, cellular and tissue mechanics, and bio-elasticity and failure in both inert and living soft materials. An overview of experimental, theoretical, and computational approaches will be covered.

The Summer School will host approximately 50 students and will be free of charge for them. Additionally, students coming from outside Vienna will receive a daily allowance as a contribution to cover accommodation expenses.

The lectures will be scheduled for the morning, allowing for a range of activities in the afternoon. These activities include joint talks (e.g. bio&phys or theo&exp), tutorials, journal clubs.

Confirmed lecturers: Alessandra Bonfanti (Italy), Mehdi Bouzid (France), Luca Cipelletti (France), Sebastian Fürthauer (Austria), Edouard Hannezo (Austria), Anaël Lemaître (France), Diana Pinheiro (Austria), Laurence Ramos (France), Simon Rogers (USA), Rastko Sknepnek (UK), Eleonora Secchi (Switzerland), Julia Yeomans (UK), Thomas Voigtmann (Germany), Zorana Zeravcic (France), Andreas Zöttl (Austria)

Registration is mandatory with no registration fee at the provided link (to avoid spam you will need to sign in with a Google account to complete the form), open until July 2, 23:59 CET. During the registration you will need to upload your CV and motivation statement in one pdf-file.

Students coming from outside Vienna will receive a daily allowance (tentatively 50 euro per day) as a contribution to cover accommodation expenses. This contribution can be requested during registration. It is your responsibility to inform your academic advisor that they need to submit a letter of support to the following email address: martina.benedikt@univie.ac.at before the application deadline of July 2. Requests not supported by a letter will not be considered for the contribution.

Applications will be reviewed, and decisions on acceptance will be communicated by July 7
