Master Thesis Topics
Topics for Master Thesis, "Diplomarbeiten" and "Staatsexamenarbeiten" are in the subject areas of Statistical Physics, Simulation and Theory of Biological and Soft Matter, Theory and Simulation of Porous Media and Fractional Calculus. The following people can supervise theses in the following subject areas. If you are interested in a theses in any of these areas, contact the corresponding scientists!
Christian Holm: Theory and Simulation of Electrostatics and Hydrodynamics in Soft Matter
Rudolf Hilfer: Theory and Simulation of Porous Media and Fractional Calculus
Jens Smiatek: Solvent effects on (Bio)Macromolecules
Maria Fyta: Biomolecules, Materials, and Biomaterials
A number of different simulation methodologies ranging from quantum mechanical to Molecular Dynamics and coarse-grained schemes are used to model different systems, which range from biomolecules, to materials, and biomaterials. The properties of interest are separately the conformational dynamics of biomolecules, and the optoelectronic and mechanical properties of doped carbon nanostructures. Focus is currently also given on the interaction of biomolacules, such as DNA nucleobases with materials, and the assembly of these different units. Applications involve biolabeling, biosensing, ultra-fast DNA sequencing, to name a few. Bachelor/Diplom/Master theses are directed along the above lines.
