Distribution of matter on super-galactic scales encodes a wealth of information about the constituents of our Universe, its evolution and initial conditions. An efficient extraction of this information requires accurate analytic and numerical methods to capture the non-linear dynamics of gravitational clustering starting from stochastic primordial density inhomogeneities. I will describe an approach based on ... Read more about "Understanding the large-scale structure of the Universe"

The design of molecular crystals with targeted properties is the goal of crystal engineering. However, our predictive understanding of how a crystal’s properties relate to its structure, and how crystal structure in turn relates to molecular structure, are not yet sufficiently reliable to confidently design functional materials. One reason for this is that the crystal ... Read more about "Functional molecular materials discovery underpinned by crystal structure prediction"

Optical coherence imaging (CI) systems developed at ANU are compact polarization-interferometers that facilitate 2D time-resolved imaging of simple plasma spectroscopic scenes. These systems simultaneously analyse the spectrum and polarization properties of relatively narrow-band spectral scenes (transmitted by an optical interference pre-filter) such as Doppler broadened emission lines or polarized multiplets. The physical parameters determining the ... Read more about "Coherence imaging for plasma spectro-polarimetry"

Chemical Engineering Seminar - Towards Electrogenetics: integrating biofabrication, synthetic biology, and microelectronics
We are developing tools of “biofabrication” that enable facile assembly of biological components within devices, including microelectronic devices, that preserve their native biological function. By recognizing that biological redox active molecules are a biological equivalent of an electron-carrying wire, we have developed biological surrogates for electronic devices, including a biological redox capacitor that enable bi-directional ...

[ SUDAC – swissuniversities Development and Cooperation Network | Funding for institutional co-operation in the Global South ]
With this call, SUDAC promotes the establishment of 2-3 Clusters of Cooperation in the Global South (CLOCs) in Africa, Asia, or Latin America. This call is not about funding research projects, but aims at establishing institutional co-operation. CLOCs must: Be related to at least 5 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Cooperate with at least 2 COFER ... Read more about "[ SUDAC – swissuniversities Development and Cooperation Network | Funding for institutional co-operation in the Global South ]"
[ European Foundation for the Study of Diabetes (EFSD) and Novo Nordisk Foundation I Funding for postdocs pursuing an academic career ]
Young investigators face a major challenge in the transition from postdoctoral/clinical fellow to their first tenured faculty position. It is hard to gain significant and truly independent funding at this career stage, yet such support is critical to advance up the academic ladder, especially in Europe. Action is needed now to avoid a generation gap ...

Description In the business world as well as in universities, strategies for power games and assertiveness become increasingly important with each career step. For women, the “likability” requirement often represents an additional challenge. Have you ever experienced “games” being played withunspoken rules, not knowing how to act or play along? This workshop reveals and decodes ... Read more about "REGARD Workshop: Increase your assertiveness in institutional power games"
