Scientific Director, Leiden Institute of Physics, Leiden University
Research at the Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) is foundational and curiosity driven. All our scientists share a desire to increase the knowledge of the world around us, in an open atmosphere of inquiry from which innovative ideas emerge that provide applications and value for society.
We study a broad range of systems and phenomena, from cosmic strings to DNA strands, from granular materials to quantum dots and from protein assemblies to socio‐economic networks. Because of this diversity, our institute is characterized by a variety of smaller groups, rather than a by few large and more narrowly focused sub‐departments.
At LION, theory (at the Lorentz Institute) and experiment (in the Huygens-Kamerlingh Onnes Laboratory) have a close interaction, with emphasis on the development of novel, world-class instrumentation.
We have places for students with CSC scholarships, including the following projects:
