Assistant Professor "Multiscale modelling of multifunctional supramolecular materials"

We are looking for an Assistant Professor who can strengthen our position in the field of Multiscale modelling of multifunctional supramolecular materials at the University of Groningen in The Netherlands. The development of bio-inspired supramolecular and hybrid (nano) materials is attracting much interest.
