Jan Dhont


Jan Dhont is a Director at Forschungszentrum Jülich (Institute of Complex Systems) and a full Professor at the Physics Department at the Heinrich-Heine University in Düsseldorf.

After his PhD in Physical Chemistry at the van’t Hoff Laboratory at the University of Utrecht and some years as a postdoc in Theoretical Physics at the University of Konstanz he returned to Utrecht as an Associate Professor before he accepted his current position at FZ Jülich. His research interests include the dynamics of macromolecules, the response of several types of macromolecular systems to external fields, and field-induced instabilities in (bio-)colloidal and polymeric systems.

Professor Dhont has an impressive track record (> 175 peer-reviewed articles and book chapters; h-Index = 39) and has attained an international high profile in the Soft Matter community due to his important contributions both as an experimentalist as well as a theoretician.
