PHD Vacancies for June 2021

The ITN-CoPerMix Project seeks PhD students to study Mixing

Covering a broad range of topics, we have excellent opportunities to work within a Europe-wide network of researchers, with a tailored plan of activities and many interactions.
For information and applications concerning the various projects please email the associated supervisor(s).
