The Machine Materials Laboratory focuses on the understanding of the physics of soft structured active materials. The goal is to develop the physics of Machine Materials, i.e. artificial materials which combine microstructure and out-of-equilibrium processes to interact with their environment in a programmable fashion
We are currently seeking brilliant and highly motivated M.Sc. students, Ph.D. candidates and post-docs to join our laboratory. If you believe to be an exceptional candidate and have interests in soft matter, soft mechanics or metamaterials, feel free to contact Dr Coulais.
