Prof. A. Ciach - Proposed Ph.D. topics:

  1. Phase transitions and critical phenomena in systems containing charged colloids
  2. Statistical mechanics of aqueous solutions - hydrophobic and hydrophilic forces
  3. Lamellar phases near chemically and/or geometrically structured surfaces
  4. ``Living polymers'': structure and phase equilibria in ionic and/or dipolar fluids.
  5. Nucleation of lyotropic liquid crystals.
