Research mission

Our research focuses on nano and mesoscopic physics, with a goal to characterize materials between the atomic and the macroscopic scale, and enable their novel functionalities.

Events



Open positions

We are supporting applications for prestigious fellowships:
- FWO at PhD and postdoctoral levels  (deadline Feb 1st)
- Marie Curie postdoctoral fellowships (deadline Sept 15th)

We also have extensive experience in hosting joint PhD students and are therefore inviting visiting PhD students and postdoctoral researchers from China, Brazil, Iran (alternative), Colombia or other countries that provide visiting scholarships.

More details can be found in the Open positions section.
