13th February 2017 : PhD studentship in Theoretical Biophysics – Cambridge U.

A BBSRC DTP targeted PhD studentship is available in the Department of
Physics to investigate the mechanosensitivity of cells. Sensing the
stiffness (elastic modulus or viscosity) of the environment requires
specific physical mechanisms. In developing a theoretical model of this
process, three aspects are needed: (a) understanding the individual
sensor mechanism, (b) mapping the signalling feedback loop that leads to
the cell phenotypical response, and (c) identifying mechanisms of sensor
coupling, leading to clustering and emergence of focal adhesions. This
project is suitable for a candidate with a good first degree (Masters
pass) in Physics, Physical Chemistry or Materials Science.

The successful candidate would have interests, and preferably some
experience in theoretical work in mechanics and statistical physics, as
well as being able to read and process biological literature. In
addition to the primary PhD research, they will participate in DTP
training courses, two 10-week rotation projects, a three-month
internship and be invited to all DTP events and activities.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 4 years. The award
covers all University fees and provides a tax-free stipend of £14,296
p.a. (index linked). The studentship is available for UK and EEA
students who meet the UK residency requirements. Students from EEA
countries who do not meet the residency requirements may still be
eligible for a fees-only award. The University has a responsibility to
ensure that all employees are eligible to live and work in the UK.

Informal enquiries should be made in the first instance to Professor
Eugene Terentjev (emt1000@cam.ac.uk). To make an application, follow the
procedure outlined on the Department website
https://www.phy.cam.ac.uk/admissions/graduate, making sure to mention
the BSS research group and/or the name of Prof. Terentjev in the form.


7th February 2017 : Tenure-track theoretical physics at Emory University

Dear Colleague,

Hope everything is well with you.

I am writing to attract your attention to the open junior tenure track
faculty position in Theoretical Physics at Emory University. I recognize
that it is somewhat late in the faculty search season. The position has
just opened for the reasons beyond our control, so it would be extremely
helpful if you can let your present/past group members and/or colleagues
know about this position. We are searching quite broadly for a theorist
in any research area who could benefit from or complement the existing
efforts in our Department in electronic, optical, and spin systems, soft
condensed matter, biological physics, nonlinear and statistical physics,
energy-related and complex materials, and computational physics.

This position is a part of the vigorous expansion recently undertaken by
the Physics Department at Emory. Within the last six years, we have
significantly expanded our graduate and undergraduate programs,
established a new research group in materials, nanoscience and optics,
and hired seven junior faculty; two of them received NSF CAREER awards,
one Cottrell Scholarship, and one Research Frontiers Award. We are
expecting to continue expanding our program at a similar rate in the
next several years. Therefore, we believe that the currently open
position presents an excellent career opportunity for candidates with a
potential for excellence in research and scientific independence.

Detailed information about the application requirements is posted online
at http://www.physics.emory.edu/news/search2017.html, and the
application can be accessed at https://apply.interfolio.com/40524.
Please let me or the Chair of the search, Sergei Urazdhin
(surazhd@emory.edu ), know if you have any
questions about this position.

Thank you,

4th December 2016 : Phd studentship at Sheffield Biophysics / genomics

Predicting genomic effects on structural colour

We are looking for a student with advanced numerical skills and an
interest in both biology and physics to work on a project predicting
genomic effects on structural colour. Structural colours, are caused by
diffraction or interference of light from nano-scale structures, and are
some of the brightest and most impressive colours found in nature. There
has been extensive interest in replicating structural colours, which are
produced from simple biological materials that are cheap and non-toxic,
and can also have unique properties such as angle dependent colour
(iridescence). However, very little is known about how the patterning of
such fine structures is controlled in biological systems and the genetic
pathways controlling this have yet to be identified in any system. This
project would use genomic data from /Heliconius/ butterflies from South
America to predict how individual genetic loci control specific aspects
of structural variation. The project will involve computational
modelling approaches, firstly to predict fine structural characteristics
from small angle x-ray scattering data and secondly to predict this
morphology from genotype.

The candidate should have a background and training in physics, maths or
computer science or advanced numerical skills from a biology background
(e.g. through masters-level training). Some experience or training in
data analysis or programming would be ideal. The student should have the
enthusiasm to get to grips with concepts from both biology and physics.
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact either of the
supervisors with informal enquiries.

This project is funded through The Leverhulme Centre for Advanced
Biological Modeling (CABM). Students may be UK or international. However
the scheme only pays UK-fees. For further information and links to

10th November 2016 : 2 YEAR POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN LPS ORSAY (SOFT MATTER)

PEELING ON PATTERNED SURFACES (POPS)

2 YEAR POSTDOCTORAL POSITION (Application deadline 20 November 2016)

The tuning of adhesion is of great interest for a number of applications in industrial, medical and even in everyday-life contexts. The theoretical description of the peeling energy of Pressure Sensitive
Adhesives remains an open issue in terms of efficient modeling. Several key features have nevertheless been identified such as the soft and viscoelastic nature of the adhesive material, the low thickness of
the adhesive layer and its confinement by a rigid backing or the nature of the interaction at the interface with the substrate.

Our goal is to investigate the role of the adhesive rheology and of the adhesive-substrate interaction on the peeling energy by tuning the adhesion mechanisms using physically or chemically patterned
substrates. Playing on the features of the patterned substrate will allow to modulate the relative contributions of the interfacial toughness, the adhesive viscoelasticity and the adhesive large strain
rheology to the peel energy. Part of the post-doc project will be devoted to the fabrication of patterned substrates (array of pillars or walls, sinusoidal wrinkles, …) over large enough scales (cm→dm)
using optical lithography, wrinkling instability and chemical stamping. The post-doc fellow will then be able to investigate the impact of the shape, the characteristic lengths and the elastic properties of
the patterned substrate on the adhesion to model the peel process, based on a determination of the deformation and the stress fields inside the adhesive layer via microscopic optical methods (Digital Image
Correlation and fitting of the shape of the tape backing with Elastica profile modified by a cohesive zone).

These issues will be addressed experimentally at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides (LPS) in strong collaboration with laboratory FAST both hosted by Université Paris-Sud in Orsay. The post-doctorate
position is funded by the Labex PALM.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Entanglement and tensor representation of quantum states

Responsable:Olivier GIRAUD 0169153175

Résumé :
Quantum information processing holds large promises for increased computational power, communication possibilities, and metrology. A major part of the theoretical research in the field has focused on identifying, quantifying, and understanding the quantum resources that enable such enhancements. Most prominent is the research on entanglement, which was identified as key resource early on: bipartite entanglement is by now well understood, and research efforts focus on multipartite entanglement, where the situation is much richer - and much more complicated.

Understanding or classifying multipartite entanglement for generic quantum states is of course a daunting task. For states symmetric under exchange of particles, one may hope to make progress due to the drastically reduced Hilbert-space dimension. In the case of symmetric states, we have developed a theory of “quantumness” and “classicality”, based on coherent states, which can be reformulated in terms of multipartite entanglement [1,2]. However, the general characterization of quantumness and classicality remains an open question.

The starting point for this internship will be a recently developed tensorial picture of symmetric states, that generalizes the Bloch sphere picture of a two-level system [3]. Many applications open up. Remarkably, this picture allows to map questions about entanglement onto mathematically well-studied problems. As a primary goal, we will exploit this existing mathematical knowledge to obtain more powerful means of identifying entangled symmetric states. The internship may be followed by a thesis. Depending on the taste and background of the student, more mathematically oriented topics (representation theory, generalized coherent states) or more physical aspects (metrology, quantum channels) could be considered.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Mechanical response of branched actin networks

Responsable: Martin Lenz 01 69 15 32 62

The architecture of living cells is largely determined by a microscopic networks of semiflexible
filaments : the actin cytoskeleton. In addition to ensuring the cell’s mechanical integrity, its growth
enables cellular motion and force exertion. These crucial roles are played by so-called branched actin
networks, which are random fractal assemblies of filaments and branching points.

Despite its importance within the cell, the rigidity of these networks is not understood from a
theoretical standpoint. Indeed, taking into account the sole rigidity of the filaments and attachment
points, we would predict a vanishing elastic modulus, in contradiction with experiments. We will examine
the origin of these networks’ rigidity, considering in particular the effects of the entanglement of the
network with itself, which generates nonlocal interactions between the points of the elastic network.
Given the difficulty of treating such interactions exactly, we will resort to mean-field approaches whose
validity will be assessed numerically.

From an experimental perspective, our collaborators Olivia du Roure and Julien Heuvingh
(ESPCI) operate a setup allowing the first clean characterization of the branched network. We will work
with them to relate our models to the characteristics of a network grown under force (similar to in vivo
conditions), its nonlinear elasticity etc.

Informal inquiries welcome.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Corrélations et intrication dans les systèmes « analogues »

Responsable:Nicolas PAVLOFF 0169157334

Résumé :

Plusieurs systèmes modèles permettent d’étudier -- théoriquement et expérimentalement -- des phénomènes, tels le rayonnement de Hawking ou l'effet Casimir dynamique, que l'on a peu d'espoir d'observer dans le contexte ou ils ont été initialement proposés.

On propose durant cette thèse d’étudier de tels systèmes "analogues", en particulier dans le domaine des condensats de Bose-Einstein et de l'optique non-linéaire. On analysera en particulier plusieurs observables susceptibles de fournir des critères de non séparabilité quantique.

12th October 2016 : Mathematical biologist/ computational soft matter physicist

I am part of a joint Edinburgh/Dundee team recently awarded a sLOLA
(strategic Longer and Larger grant) by the BBSRC to investigate the
structure, function and dynamics of bacterial biofilms. We are currently
looking to recruit a soft matter physicist/ mathematical biologist to
join our team, see below for details. Contact myself
(cait.macphee@ed.ac.uk ), Prof. N
Stanley-Wall (N.R.Stanleywall@dundee.ac.uk
) or Prof. F Davidson
(f.a.davidson@dundee.ac.uk ) if you
would like to discuss.

=====================
An exciting opportunity for a mathematical modeller/ computational
physicist to work in a multidisciplinary team on bacterial biofilms in
one of Europe’s strongest life sciences research environments.

Bacterial biofilms have a profound significance in both in infections
and in biotechnological applications.
A major award has been made by the UK science agency BBSRC (the
Biotechnology and Biosciences Research Council) to a team led by
Professor Nicola Stanley-Wall that has been carefully assembled to
combine skills in molecular microbiology and biofilm formation rheology,
optical imaging, protein self-assembly, biopolymers, mathematical
modelling, and carbohydrate chemistry that will lead to a complete
quantitative description of a bacterial biofilm.
The successful applicant for this specific post will work with Prof
Stanley-Wall and Prof Fordyce Davidson (renowned for his work in
modelling microbial systems) to develop an enhanced understanding of the
physico-mechanical properties of the biofilm matrix through a
combination of mathematical modelling and laboratory experiments. The
applicant will work in collaboration with the other researchers in the
consortium to place this information into an overarching model of
biofilm structure, function and dynamics.
A background in mathematical modelling using a range of computational
techniques is essential and candidates with experience in modelling
mechanical properties of soft matter are particularly well-suited.
Experience in conducting laboratory experiments would be ideal but not
necessary. However, a willingness to learn and engage across disciplines
is essential and relevant training will be provided.
The successful candidate will have a PhD in a related discipline.

This position is available for 3 years in the first instance.

7th October 2016 : U. Michigan postdoc to faculty program to ‘promote a diverse scholarly environment’

Hello,

My college within the University of Michigan has just announced a new
postdoc fellowship program aimed at promoting diversity at the college.
It consists of 2 years of funding with the goal of having this postdoc
be highly competitive at the end of the 2 year term for a tenure track
position in the college.

It is my understanding that 'diversity' is broadly defined at this point
and the turn around time on this announcement is pretty quick
(applications are due Nov 7). The flier is attached. If you are
interested or know anyone who might be, please feel free to contact me
if I can be helpful in any way. I think that Michigan is a great place
to do science and would selfishly love to have more membrane/soft matter
researchers on campus!

13th September 2016 : Princeton University postdoctoral opportunities in theoretical biological physics

Dear Colleague,

We want to bring to your attention the existence at Princeton of several
openings for recent PhDs in theoretical physics who wish to pursue a
career in theoretical biological physics. As we hope you know, we have
been building a group in this area at Princeton over the last decade,
and we now have a robust activity that involves students, postdocs and
faculty from several departments. We are actively recruiting postdocs to
join this group, and we hope that you will urge any outstanding
prospective or recent PhD students of your acquaintance to apply to any
of the following positions for which they might be eligible (do point
out that there is an October 15th application deadline for all of them!).

1. Postdoctoral Associate in our group. This is a regular Physics
postdoctoral position, but one in which the incumbent has great freedom
to choose projects, and can benefit from the mentorship of any of the
senior members of our group (or linear combinations thereof). Past
holders of this position have had a remarkable record of success in
landing next-level positions in the field of biophysics. Please direct
your students to the following link for more information:
https://www.princeton.edu/physics/about/employment/biophysics/index.xml

2. Postdoctoral Fellow of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science
(PCTS). The PCTS sponsors interdisciplinary research based in
theoretical physics and the PCTS Faculty Fellows select three new
Fellows each year from a pool of candidates in all fields of theory. The
PCTS provides a unique environment for exceptional recent PhDs in
theoretical physics, broadly construed, to broaden their horizons and
explore new fields. Candidates must be nominated by senior scientists.
Nominations of biological physicists are encouraged, and Fellows with
such interests would be welcomed as participants in our group.
Appointments to this position are at the level of Associate Research
Scholar. Please consult http://pcts.princeton.edu/pcts for more
information.

3. Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellow. The Lewis-Sigler Institute (LSI), a joint
venture of the Physics and Molecular Biology (and other) departments,
offers positions at the level of Associate Research Scholar that carry
extra resources and the opportunity to teach in innovative undergraduate
programs. These positions are appropriate for exceptional newly- minted
PhD’s who are ready to lead their own group. LSI Theory Fellows are
selected by the full LSI faculty, but typically work very closely with
our group. Application procedures will be described on the LSI website.
Applicants to (1) who wish to also be considered as Lewis-Sigler Theory
Fellows should so indicate in their cover letter.

We emphasize that we are interested in applications from students with
exceptional theoretical skills and a strong motivation to use these

13th July 2016 : Tenure track position @ Amolf

Dear Colleagues

With this email I wish to attract your attention to an opening for
tenure track positions at FOM institute Amolf in Amsterdam. These
positions are funded through the Women In Science Excel (WISE)
programme, which has just been initiated by the Dutch national funding
agency NWO. The deadline of the first round is September 28th, and more
information can be found at www.nwo.nl/en/research-and-result
/programmes/women+in+science+excel and-results/programmes/women+in+science+excel>

Please note that WISE will provide 20 tenure track positions at NWO
research institutes in the coming five years --- Amolf is one of seven
of such institutes. An important point is that the WISE advertisement
text may suggest that only a relatively modest startup is provided ---
however, in the case of Amolf, successful candidates will receive a
competitive start-up package for both equipment and PhD students,
technical and other support. For a short description of Amolf, see below
or visit www.amolf.nl

If you know of suitable candidates, please forward this email, and/or
contact me or my colleagues directly.

Best wishes, Martin van Hecke, Wim Noorduin, Bas Overvelde

FOM Institute AMOLF is one of the national research institutes of the
Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter (FOM), which is part of
the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO). AMOLF is
located at the Science Park in Amsterdam, in close proximity of the
University of Amsterdam and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.

The research program of AMOLF is focused on the physics of functional
matter, and brings together physics, chemistry, biology, materials
sciences and engineering. Important aspects of the research at AMOLF are
the development and use of advanced scientific instrumentation and
quantitative modelling. Central to the mission of AMOLF is the start of
promising research directions that are new to the Netherlands.

Present research themes at AMOLF include Nanophotonics, i.e. the study
and control of light at the nanoscale, Designer Matter, i.e. the study
of novel materials with special properties deriving from their
architecture, and Living Matter, i.e. the biophysics of living systems
at the cellular and multicellular scale. The research program of AMOLF
finds applications in sustainable energy, health, high-tech
instrumentation and advanced materials, and food. In the coming years
there will be a strong focus on novel cooperative research projects
within and between the different themes.

1st July 2016 : Postdoc in Computational Neuroscience/Biological Physics – ENS Paris

Post-doctoral position in Computational Neuroscience/Biological Physics
at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris.

A post doctoral associate is sought to model and analyze the plasticity
of neuronal inhibition and its functional consequences. Applicants are
expected to have a strong background in physics or mathematics and a
strong interest in the study of biological systems. The work will be
carried in the teams of A Triller and V Hakim at ENS with a preferred
start during the autumn 2016. Please see the attached announcement for
further details.

30th June 2016 : Postdoc in theoretical biophysics

The speed of thought - Mechanics of neurotransmission

Neurotransmitter release from synaptic vesicle is a fundamental
biological phenomenon enabling the communication between neurons.
Therefore a deep understanding of this process may have a dramatic
impact on the treatment of many neurological pathologies. For this
mechanism to be efficient, a synchronized and explosive fusion of
synaptic vesicles with the presynaptic neuron plasma membrane is required.

This process involves protein nanomachines called SNAREs whose role is
to trigger the fusion process by deforming and pulling the vesicles
towards the membrane in a cooperative manner. Less than one millisecond
is required for the fusion to occur in vivo and it is believed that this
ultra-fast timescale can only be achieved through a smart mechanical
design of the SNARE machinery, which remains to be revealed. This
post-doc aims at addressing this issue by (i) proposing a mechanical
model of the action of the SNAREs and by (ii) studying the membrane
response to this action. Even though, this is a purely theoretical work,
it will be in direct interaction with experiments performed at the
LPS-ENS and at Yale University in James Rothman’s lab (Nobel Prize in
Medicine, 2013).

This work requires a strong background in statistical physics, mechanics
and numerical computation. No particular knowledge in biology is
required but for the project being at the interface between physics
mechanics and biology, candidates should be willing to work in a highly
interdisciplinary environment.

Offre pour chercheur postdoctoral  INLN,  Université Nice Sophia Antipolis 
Début du contrat: 1er septembre 2016

Réalisation d’un robot nageur biomimétique 

Notre équipe a récemment mis à jour une loi théorique décrivant la vitesse de la nage de gros organismes en fonction de leurs paramètres cinématiques (taille, fréquence, amplitude d’ondulation de  la
nageoire).
Ce projet vise à étudier expérimentalement la physique de la nage aquatique.
Le travail consistera à analyser la nage de robots dans une veine hydraulique, localisée à l’INLN. Les robots seront manufacturés avec une imprimante 3D, à l’aide de polymères mous. La forme du robot
correspond au calcul de la morphologie de corps de poisson optimisée pour minimiser la puissance fournie par les muscles pour un déplacement à vitesse constante. 
Les muscles seront modélisés avec de multiples électroaimants pilotés par ordinateur. Le champ de vitesse généré par le nageur sera mesuré et analysé avec un système PIV, basé sur une nappe laser et une caméra
rapide. 

Pour un candidat motivé, ayant une bonne expérience en mécanique des fluides ; des connaissances robotique sont un plus, mais ne sont pas forcément indispensables.

qu'ils/elles aient envie de faire un peu de simulation), sachant que c'est le
post-doc qui fera l'essentiel des développements numériques.

Est-ce que tu accepterais de faire passer ces annonces dans ton labo et auprès
de tes étudiants s'il te plaît ?

Merci d'avance,
Amitiés,

16th March 2016 : PhD positions in theoretical biological physics at Sheffield

PhD postion Modelling metastasis of breast cancer cells

/Some primary tumour cells can migrate out of the primary tumour to a
different site in the body leading to the formation of secondary tumours
(called metastases). Advanced breast cancer is associated with bone
metastases. Cell migration is affected by the geometry and mechanical
properties of the environment a cell is moving in. In this theoretical
physics PhD project we will build on existing models of cell migration
mechanisms, applying them to the bone micro-environment. We will use
simplified analytical models in combination with computational
simulations to address complex geometries. This project is part of a
larger multidisciplinary project. As such, the theoretical work will be
undertaken in collaboration with experimental groups in physics (Jamie
Hobbs and Ashley
Cadby ) and oncology
(Nicola Brown
and Ingunn Holen
).
To be eligible for the funding the candidate must have (or be about to
graduate with) a 1st class (or high 2:1) degree at masters level in
physics or related subject (e.g. MPhys) and must be a UK/EU citizen.

Application deadline: 6th April

PhD postion Modelling force generation in endocytosis

/Endocytosis is a process in which biological cells take in particles
(e.g. molecules or microbes) by engulfing them with membrane. The
membrane deforms to engulf the particle and then pinches off into a
vesicle inside the cell. The cytoskeleton protein actin is required for
endocytosis but its role is not yet well understood. It is thought that
the polymerisation of actin filaments generates the forces needed to
deform the membrane. Such forces will depend on the structure of the
network formed by actin filaments. The aim of this theoretical physics
project will be to predict what actin network structure is necessary to
generate the required forces. We will calculate the force generated for
different geometrical organisations of actin filaments. We will compare
the forces generated by parallel actin filaments, actin bundles (where
individual parallel filaments are attached together) and branched actin
networks. The theoretical work will be done in collaboration with
experimental biologists in the University of Sheffield.
To be eligible for the funding the candidate must have (or be about to
graduate with) a 1st class (or high 2:1) degree at masters level in

Postdoctoral position in theoretical descriptions of living and
nonliving matter at Syracuse University

The J. M. Schwarz Theory Group in the Department of Physics at Syracuse
University welcomes applications from postdoctoral candidates interested
in theoretical descriptions of living and nonliving matter. The
candidate will be grappling with such issues as: (1) the interplay
between constraint counting, geometry, and forces in determining the
properties of frictional, jammed solids near jamming, (2) the interplay
between mechanics and morphology in coupled semiflexible polymer
networks to explore mechanical mechanisms regulating a number of living
processes ranging from transcription to cell crawling, and (3)
understanding the brain as a material to ultimately better understand
how it functions. Depending on the project, the work ranges from a mix
of analytical and computational approaches to predominantly
computational, augmented by heuristics. There will also be opportunity
for collaborations with other faculty, students and postdocs in the
Syracuse Soft Matter Program (that includes faculty members Mark Bowick,
Lisa Manning, Cristina Marchetti, and Joseph Paulsen).

The position will begin at a flexible date, preferably in the
late spring of 2016, and has a duration of one year, with the
possibility of renewal for a second year. For consideration, applicants

9th February 2016 : Postdoc position: Epithelial sheet dynamics as Active matter – U. of Aberdeen

Dear colleagues,

As part of the BBSRC grant 'Epithelial Sheet Dynamics during Primitive
Streak formation as Active Matter', a 3 year postdoc position is
available in my group in Aberdeen starting in April 2016 or as soon as
possible thereafter.

The aim of the project is to adapt ideas and tools from active and soft
matter into a realistic microscopic model and a mesoscopic theory for
cell sheet mechanics in a developmental biology context. In
collaboration with co-I Rastko Sknepnek (Dundee), we will model
collective cell properties as actively driven cells that interact via a
number of biological and mechanical mechanisms.

This project is a joint grant with the lab of Kees Weijer (School of
Life Sciences, University of Dundee), which has recently developed full
imaging and tracking of the cells of a chick embryo during early
embryogenesis. This theory position will be paired with an experimental
postdoc who will focus on mechanical perturbations, and we aim for a
close collaboration between theory and experiment.

The postdoc will be based at the Institute for Complex Systems and
Mathematical Biology at the University of Aberdeen, a dynamic set of
theory groups that focus on modelling biology using nonlinear dynamics
and statistical mechanics ideas.
There will be frequent meetings with the Dundee side of the project (1
hour away by train), and opportunities for the postdoc to directly work
alongside the experiment.
Remuneration is competitive at grade scale 6, with an initial salary of
£31k.

We are looking for a candidate with a background in soft matter,
biological physics or statistical mechanics, and with significant
experience in numerical simulation. Previous experience with
cross-disciplinary projects involving biology is desirable.

For more information, please contact the PI Silke Henkes directly
at shenkes@abdn.ac.uk with a CV that includes a publication list and the
contact information of at least 2 references, and a statement of
research interests.

Please forward this ad to all interested candidates.

5th February 2016 : PhD position in biophysics at the University of Dundee

Dear colleagues,

I am please to announce a PhD position in computational biophysics at
the University of Dundee, UK.

This project will combine advanced physics modelling with the state of
the art imaging and data analysis to build a detailed model of the early
stages of the development in chick embryo, a model for human development.

Primary tasks in this project will be to apply the cell-level model for
epithelial tissues recently developed in collaboration with Dr Silke
Henkes (Aberdeen) to study collective processes in the developing
embryo. The project will require a close collaboration with the
experimental group of Prof. Cornelis Weijer (Dundee, Life
Sciences). Depending on expertise and interest the candidate may also be
involved in the development of novel new methods for image segmentation
and analysis of the large scale light microscopic data of the cellular
dynamics underlying chick development.

Candidate should have strong background in physics or a closely related
field and a strong interest to work in a vibrant interdisciplinary
environment. Proficiently in programming is not strictly required, but
knowledge of Python and/or Matlab would be an asset.

Due to the terms of funding, *students should be from the UK* (or
have been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for 3 years prior to the
start of the studentship). Additionally students should have at least a
2:1 degree, or 2:2 degree with an appropriate Masters degree.

Students interested in applying should contact me directly for further
instructions.

Thank you,

Rastko

11th December 2015 : PhD Studentships available at UCL in Computational and Theoretical Biophysics

We are inviting applications for*two fully funded 3.5-year PhD
studentships* in the area of *computational and theoretical biophysics*,
carried out jointly in the *Department of Physics & Astronomy
* and the* Institute for the Physics of
Living Systems (IPLS) * at
UCL. IPLS is a dynamic interdisciplinary institute, with a goal to
promote physical approaches to biology, and catalyse interactions
between theorists and experimentalist. Please see below for a short
description of the projects. Deadline for applications is 01 March 2016.
More details can be found
at https://www.ucl.ac.uk/physics-living-systems/opportunities.

*1. **Project Title: Physics of functional and pathological protein
aggregation*

The newly established research group of Dr Andela Saric
uses computer simulations and techniques
from soft matter and statistical physics, to address biologically
relevant questions. We are seeking a bright and motivated PhD student to
contribute to understanding pathways of functional and pathological
protein assembly. *The fundamental question we ask is: how does a large
number of macromolecules collectively assemble into microscopic
aggregates under various environmental factors, that can be either
functional or pathological. *Two examples include functional dynamic
aggregation of protein fibrils in the extracellular matrix, rigorously
controlled by the cell, and uncontrolled aggregation of proteins into
amyloid plaques, involved in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases.

Microscopic mechanisms of these biological processes are difficult to
directly probe experimentally, and unattainable via fully atomistic
computer simulations. *Our goal is to identify them using simple
physical (coarse-grained) models and statistical physics. *Our strategy
is to obtain observables which can be directly compared with
experimental measurements. This will give us insights into how cells
regulate functional assembly, and how to circumvent pathological protein
aggregation. The project involves collaboration with experimental
groups, in Cambridge and the London area.

* *

*2. **Project Title: Physical modelling of cell shape and changes
during movement and stress response*

The proposed project will be carried out in the newly established
theoretical group of Dr. Shiladitya Banerjee
at IPLS. The research group
uses techniques and methods from theoretical physics and applied
mathematics to develop quantitative models of biological processes
essential for regulating cellular physiology and development. We seek to
recruit a highly motivated and bright PhD student who will contribute
towards the understanding of how living cells and cellular assemblies
modulate their shapes and mechanical properties as functions of their
internal structure and external stresses. *The goal is to develop
predictive physical models relating cell shape changes to the
architecture and the dynamics of cytoskeletal assemblies.*

Cell shape changes, as essential for movements at cellular and tissue
length scales, are regulated by a set of relatively well-conserved
molecular machines in the cell cytoskeleton. *The fundamental question
we seek to address is: how the diverse mechanical behavior at cellular
scales can arise from a minimal set of cytoskeletal components. *The aim
of the proposed project is to establish predictive relations between
cytoskeletal organization and cell shape changes, and to elucidate
alternative mechanisms of cellular movement and stress generation. Such
predictive models can guide future mutagenesis experiments and help
realize the engineering potential of living materials. The project will
be pursued in close collaboration with experimental groups for which UCL
and the London area are ideal.

PhD position

I am currently recruiting a PhD student to start autumn 2016 to work on
the following project. Please email me
if you would like more
information. Please apply online
. Note the
deadline is 6th January 2016.

*/Modelling metastasis of breast cancer cells/*

Some primary tumour cells can migrate out of the primary tumour to a
different site in the body leading to the formation of secondary tumours
(called metastases). Advanced breast cancer is associated with bone
metastases. Cell migration is affected by the geometry and mechanical
properties of the environment a cell is moving in. In this theoretical
physics PhD project we will build on existing models of cell migration
mechanisms, applying them to the bone micro-environment. We will use
simplified analytical models in combination with computational
simulations to address complex geometries. This project is part of a
larger multidisciplinary project. As such, the theoretical work will be
undertaken in collaboration with experimental groups in physics (Jamie
Hobbs and Ashley
Cadby ) and oncology
(Nicola Brown
and Ingunn Holen
).

LPTMS Postdoc: Theoretical Biophysics

We welcome applications from postdoctoral candidates interested in theoretical descriptions of the cytoskeleton and other problems at the interface between Soft Matter/Statistical Physics and Biology. Possible projects include collaborations with Margaret Gardel (U. of Chicago), Michael Murrell (Yale U.) and Chase Broedersz (LMU Munich) to predict the out-of-equilibrium structure and contraction mechanisms of the actin cytoskeleton, and with Aurélien Roux (U. of Geneva) on protein-membrane interactions. More details at www.lptms.u-psud.fr/membres/mlenz/research

The postdoc will join a new, dynamic group spearheading research at the Soft Matter/Biology interface within a world-class Statistical Mechanics lab. The position presents ample opportunities for strong interactions with local and international collaborators. Autonomous interactions with experimentalists and the development of creative independent projects are encouraged. Depending on project and the candidate's expertise and preferences, the work might range from purely analytical to largely numerical. Teaching and outreach opportunities will also be provided.

The postdoc will be employed by CNRS, France's largest and most recognized research institution. Funding is available for at least two years of employment. The work is to be conducted at LPTMS, a joint laboratory of CNRS and Université Paris-Sud with a markedly international atmosphere. Located in Orsay, it is 25 minutes away from central Paris via a frequent, direct commuter train.

The gross salary for the position ranges between 2600 €/month and 3600 €/month depending on experience. Benefits include free full healthcare coverage for the postdoc and his or her dependents, generous vacations, 16-weeks fully-paid maternity leaves, free schooling from age 3 and subsidized child care for younger children. CNRS additionally subsidizes vacations, sports and cultural activities for its employees.

The position will begin at a flexible date, preferably in the Winter/Spring of 2017. The successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. by the start date and have strong background and research achievements in Theoretical Soft Matter, Biological and/or Statistical Physics. Applicants coming from Mechanics and Computational Physics will also be considered. Applications will comprise the names of three references, an application letter, a CV and a publications list including preprints. Informal inquiries welcome.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Etude des quasiparticules dans l’effet Hall quantique fractionnaire a plusieurs composantes

Responsable: Thierry Jolicoeur 01 69 15 70 29

L'effet Hall quantique fractionnaire (EHQF) bien connu de la physique des electrons bidimensionnels sous champ magnetique tres fort se manifeste par la formation de liquides d'electrons presentant un gap pour toute forme d'excitations au contraire d'une mer de Fermi ordinaire. De nombreux etats de ce genre ont ete decouverts et caracterises ces vingt dernieres annees. Dans les experiences il est frequent que les electrons ne soient pas totalement polarises de spin. Les fonctions d'onde decrivant ces etats sont alors par la force des choses multicomposantes. Alors que dans les gaz d'electrons de GaAs/GaAlAs seul entre en jeu le spin, d'autres materiaux mettent en jeu encore plus de porteurs comme par exemple AlAs ou on a des degres de liberte de vallee. L'exemple qui est au coeur de ce projet est le graphene monocouche dans lequel on a une degenerescence d'un facteur quatre qui est legerement levee. Des progres experimentaux dans la suspension de monocouches rendent l'etude de l'EHQF tres interessante. De nombreux problemes nouveaux surgissent qui peuvent etre etudies par diagonalisation exacte de systemes de petite taille finie. Dans le cas de l'EHQF, un facteur favorable est la degenerescence de Landau: si l'aire du systeme est bornee alors l'espace des etats du niveau de Landau le plus bas est de dimension finie sans troncation ad-hoc. Dans le cas du graphene des experiences en cours commencent a reveler la physique des etats EQHF pour les remplissages « tiers », 2/3, 4/3, 5/3. Ces etats ne sont pas de simples copies des etats deja connus dans les gaz d'electrons bidimensionnels. Il s'agit d'etudier la nature de ces etats et de caracteriser leurs excitations qui possedent des nombres quantiques nonconventionnels comme la charge electrique fractionnaire. Notamment certains de ces etats ont des excitations dites de herissons de spins, les skyrmions qui gouvernent les proprietes de transport electriques. Il faudra utiliser toute une palette d'outils theoriques pour les comprendre.

27th September 2015 : Soft Active Matter postdoctoral positions at Brandeis

---------- Forwarded message ----------
Date: Sat, 26 Sep 2015 19:57:42 -0400
From: Seth Fraden
To: undisclosed-recipients: ;
Subject: Soft Active Matter postdoctoral positions at Brandeis

Dear Colleague,

Please share this job announcement with anyone whom you think might be interested.

Programmable Chemomechanical Materials

Openings: Three Postdoctoral Researchers, Brandeis University
(1) Experimental Polymer Chemistry or Physics (Gel Synthesis).
(2) Experimental Soft Matter (Chemical Networks).
(3) Computational Soft Matter (Gel ChemoMechanics).

 

We seek three postdocs to join an interdisciplinary, tightly integrated team of five investigators in the departments of chemistry and physics
at Brandeis University (Mike Hagan, Seth Fraden, Klaus Schmidt-Rohr, Bing Xu, Ye Zhang) to synthesize chemo-responsive gels, elucidate the
mechanisms of operation through molecular-level characterization, model performance through theory and computer simulation, and engineer
devices using microfluidics and 3D printing. 

The system will be used to elucidate the fundamental physical principles of active soft matter materials based on reaction-diffusion
chemistry, enabling engineering of materials capable of chemical control and chemomechanical transduction. These synthetic materials will have
attributes heretofore found only in living matter, which enable controlling and performing work on the nanoscale. One bioinspired example is
the sinuous motion of a lamprey, in which neurons running down the spinal column are excited in sequence causing the musculature to contract,
thereby propelling the lamprey. In this project, two sub-systems, one for control that emulates the autonomous nervous system and one for
actuation that emulates musculature, will be developed and integrated. 

The control elements mimicking neurons will be microscopic chemical reactors containing the Belousov-Zhabotinsky (BZ) reaction, while the
actuators mimicking musculature will be embodied by gels whose volume is sensitive to the chemistry. This research addresses two fundamental
challenges. First, coding, controlling and transferring the information in the dynamical spatiotemporal patterns of compartmentalized chemical
reactors into a targeted mechanical response. Second, understanding and optimizing the mechanism of chemo-mechanical transduction in gels. 

(1) Active Gel Synthesis and Characterization. Qualifications: Experience in experimental polymer chemistry or physics. Tasks: Synthesize
hydrogels that undergo volume changes driven by oscillating chemical reactions. Samples will be characterized with light and electron
microscopy, with x-ray and light scattering and with NMR. The goal is to understand mechanisms and optimize conditions that maximize the
oscillating chemical reaction driven volume transition in the gel. Supervisors: Fraden, Schmidt-Rohr, Xu (Brandeis) and  Zhang (Okinawa
Institute of Science and Technology).

(2) Chemical Network Design and Control. Qualifications: Experience in experimental soft matter, microfluidics and dynamical
systems. Tasks: Build, model and control coupled networks of non-linear chemical oscillators with well defined and externally switchable
dynamic states. An important challenge is coupling this control network to the chemically responsive gels to yield a system that can change
volume in concert with predictable and tunable chemical activity. Supervisors: Fraden and Hagan (Brandeis).

(3) Modeling Gel Chemo-Mechanics. Qualifications: Experience in computational finite element continuum mechanics, hydrodynamics, multi-physics
simulations and other coarse-grained methods, e.g. bead-spring models, molecular dynamics, and/or Monte Carlo. Applicants are sought with
interests in fields such as soft matter, thermodynamics, chemical kinetics, dynamical systems, and networks. Tasks: Model experimental
networks of chemo-mechanical gels in flow. Develop non-linear control algorithms for experimental system. Supervisors: Fraden and Hagan
(Brandeis).

Women and minority candidates are encouraged to apply. Brandeis University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer M/W/D/V.

Start Date: January, 2016. Location: Brandeis University, Waltham, MA, USA 

Submit applications specifying which position you are applying for to Seth Fraden via email: fraden@brandeis.edu.

Dear Colleagues,

I am currently looking for a postdoctoral fellow to work on theory of
droplet-based microfluidics in the framework of EC FET Open grant. The
research will bein a close collaboration with an experimental group
(Patrick Tabeling, ESPCI) and numerical group (Luca Brandt, KTH). The
basic idea is to use microfluidics for high-throughput production of
pre-programmed colloidal clusters made of highly monodisperse droplets
produced by using step-emulsification (see
http://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlelanding/2015/lc/c4lc01289e#!divAbstract).

The prospective postdoc fellow will be involved in theoretical
modeling of basic hydrodynamic phenomena, such as breakup/generation of
strongly confined "slug" droplets in shallow microchannels, hydrodynamic
assembly of weakly confined droplets into clusters, etc.

Requirements: (1) PhD degree in engineering (chemical, mechanical,
aeronautical), physics, applied mathematics or closely related fields;
(2) strong background in hydrodynamics and excellent
analytical/numerical stills (previous experience with modeling of
droplet dynamics, interfacial flows or/and free-boundary problems is a
plus); (3) ability to work independently; (4) very good English
(speaking, writing, reading) skills.

The term of appointment is for 2 years. The salary and benefits are
commensurate with qualifications and experience, and are internationally
competitive. To apply, please send a detailed CV including list of
publications and contact information of two referees to me
(lisha@technion.ac.il ). The expected

http://www-liphy.ujf-grenoble.fr/pagesperso/etienne/migration

Mechanics of living cells migration: modelling and numerical simulations
http://www-liphy.ujf-grenoble.fr/pagesperso/etienne/migration_en

Thèse de doctorat à effectuer au Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire de Physique, Université Grenoble Alpes. Mots clés: Biophysique, Rhéologie, Fluides complexes, Mécanique des milieux continus, Biologie cellulaire, Recherche interdisciplinaire. Encadrement: Jocelyn Étienne, Jocelyn.Etienne@UJF-Grenoble.fr Claude Verdier, Claude.Verdier@UJF-Grenoble.fr Financement : Contrat doctoral de l'école doctorale I-MEP2.

Pour accomplir leur fonction biologique, les cellules vivantes exercent des contraintes mécaniques sur leur environnement. L'un des phénomènes les plus spectaculaires est la migration cellulaire, qui est une fonction cruciale des cellules immunitaires devant parvenir sur le lieu d'une inflammation, mais qui est également observée pour les cellules tumorales lors de la formation de métastases. La compréhension de cette mécanique est donc essentielle tant d'un point de vue fondamental que pour la recherche clinique.

Les cellules exercent des forces sur le milieu extérieur entre autres via des molécules d'adhésions qui sont liées à une structure interne à la cellule, le cytosquelette d'actomyosine. Ce cytosquelette est composé d'un réseau de polymères, l'actine, en constant réarrangement, réticulé par des liens moléculaires qui ne durent que quelques secondes. À ces liens s'ajoutent des moteurs moléculaires, les myosines, qui peuvent déplacer leur point d'attachement sur l'actine et ainsi exercer des forces contractiles dans ce réseau. Les étapes nécessaires à la migration des cellules sur un substrat plan sont connues [Mitchison & Cramer, 1996]. L'objectif de cette thèse est d'expliquer et de prédire quantitativement la migration de cellules en utilisant un modèle rhéologique fondé sur la microstructure moléculaire [Etienne et al., 2015] et en accord avec les expériences conduites dans l'équipe.

29th October 2014 : Postdoc in theoretical biological physics – Princeton University

Dear Colleague,

We are following up to remind you of the existence at Princeton of
several openings for recent PhDs in theoretical physics who wish to
pursue a career in theoretical biological physics. As we hope you know,
we have been building a group in this area at Princeton over the last
decade, and we now have a robust activity that involves students,
postdocs and faculty from several departments. We are actively
recruiting postdocs to join this group, and we hope that you will urge
any outstanding prospective or recent PhD students of your acquaintance
to apply to any of the following positions for which they might be
eligible (please note and do point out that the mid-October application
deadlines for all positions have been extended to November 15!).

1. Postdoctoral Associate in our group. This is a regular Physics
postdoctoral position, but one in which the incumbent has great freedom
to choose projects, and can benefit from the mentorship of any of the
senior members of our group (or linear combinations thereof). Past
holders of this position have had a remarkable record of success in
landing next-level positions in the field of biophysics. Please direct
your students to the following link for more information:

https://www.princeton.edu/physics/about/employment/biophysics/index.xml

2. Postdoctoral Fellow of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science
(PCTS). The PCTS sponsors interdisciplinary research based in
theoretical physics and the PCTS Faculty Fellows select three new
Fellows each year from a pool of candidates in all fields of theory. The
PCTS provides a unique environment for exceptional recent PhDs in
theoretical physics, broadly construed, to broaden their horizons and
explore new fields. Candidates must be nominated by senior scientists.
Nominations of biological physicists are encouraged, and Fellows with
such interests would be welcomed as participants in our group.
Appointments to this position are at the level of Associate Research
Scholar. Please consult

http://pcts.princeton.edu/pctsfor more information.

3. Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellow. The Lewis-Sigler Institute (LSI), a joint
venture of the Physics and Molecular Biology (and other) departments,
offers five-year positions at the level of Associate Research Scholar
that carry extra resources and the opportunity to teach in innovative
undergraduate programs. These positions are appropriate for exceptional
newly- minted PhD’s who are ready to lead their own group. LSI Theory
Fellows are selected by the full LSI faculty, but typically work very
closely with our group. Application procedures will be described on the
LSI website. Applicants to (1) who wish to also be considered as
Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellows
should so indicate in their cover letter.

We emphasize that we are interested in applications from students with
exceptional theoretical skills and a strong motivation to use these
skills to pursue biological problems, independent of the depth of
their research experience in biology. Many of our most successful
postdocs have learned their biology "on the job", and we think that we
provide an outstanding environment for such learning. Your assistance in
encouraging strong candidates for any of these positions to apply would

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Biophysics : Soft & Active
Matter approaches to Synthetic Biology

Applications are invited for an BBSRC/EPSRC-funded postdoctoral Research
Assistant in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol
working with Tanniemola Liverpool.

Applicants should have (or be about to receive) a PhD in applied
mathematics, theoretical condensed matter physics, theoretical biophysics,
complex fluids, statistical mechanics or related area.

They must have a proven record of experience in the theory and simulation
of complex fluids, biological fluids,or condensed matter systems.
Experience in the any of the following areas is also desirable:
numerical simulations of active matter systems, numerical analysis of soft
condensed matter and complex fluids, Brownian dynamics simulations,
Molecular dynamics simulations.

With the goal of applying soft matter techniques in synthetic biology, the
research project involves the development of coarse-gained models for
synthetic biological systems in close collaboration with
experiments being done in Bristol. Examples of the synthetic biological
systems being studied are: the assembly and communication of membrane
encapsulated nanoreactors, the design of a scalable biosynthetic
platform for polyketide production in E. coli , or models of self
assembled peptide cages for presenting immunogenetic peptides and
proteins.

Active materials are a new class of soft materials maintained out of
equilibrium by internal energy sources. There are many examples in
biological contexts. The key property that distinguishes active matter
from more familiar non-equilibrium soft systems, is that the energy input
that maintains the system out of equilibrium comes from each constituent,
rather than the boundaries.

The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and
teaching in the mathematical sciences in the UK, and offers a stimulating
and friendly environment with first-rate facilities.

The start date for the position will be 30 November 2014, or later by
mutual agreement. The contract will be a two year fixed-term contract with
the possibility of extension to up to 60 months.

Details about the job and how to apply can be found on :
www.bristol.ac.uk/jobs with job number ACAD101002

Candidates should ask three referees to send references by the closing
date (30th September 2014) to: Miss Sam Dixon, Senior Executive Assistant,

21st August 2014 : Postdoctoral opportunities in theoretical biological physics at Princeton University

Dear Colleague,

We want to bring to your attention the existence at Princeton of several
openings for recent PhDs in theoretical physics who wish to pursue a
career in theoretical biological physics. As we hope you know, we have
been building a group in this area at Princeton over the last decade,
and we now have a robust activity that involves students, postdocs and
faculty from several departments. We are actively recruiting postdocs to
join this group, and we hope that you will urge any outstanding
prospective or recent PhD students of your acquaintance to apply to any
of the following positions for which they might be eligible (do point
out that there are mid-October application deadlines for all of them!).

1. Postdoctoral Associate in our group. This is a regular Physics
postdoctoral position, but one in which the incumbent has great freedom
to choose projects, and can benefit from the mentorship of any of the
senior members of our group (or linear combinations thereof). Past
holders of this position have had a remarkable record of success in
landing next-level positions in the field of biophysics. Please direct
your students to the following link for more information:
https://www.princeton.edu/physics/about/employment/biophysics/index.xml

2. Postdoctoral Fellow of the Princeton Center for Theoretical Science
(PCTS). The PCTS sponsors interdisciplinary research based in
theoretical physics and the PCTS Faculty Fellows select three new
Fellows each year from a pool of candidates in all fields of theory. The
PCTS provides a unique environment for exceptional recent PhDs in
theoretical physics, broadly construed, to broaden their horizons and
explore new fields.
Candidates must be nominated by senior scientists. Nominations of
biological physicists are encouraged, and Fellows with such interests
would be welcomed as participants in our group. Appointments to this
position are at the level of Associate Research Scholar. Please consult
http://pcts.princeton.edu/pctsfor more information.

3. Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellow. The Lewis-Sigler Institute (LSI), a joint
venture of the Physics and Molecular Biology (and other) departments,
offers five-year positions at the level of Associate Research Scholar
that carry extra resources and the opportunity to teach in innovative
undergraduate programs. These positions are appropriate for exceptional
newly-minted PhD’s who are ready to lead their own group. LSI Theory
Fellows are selected by the full LSI faculty, but typically work very
closely with our group. Application procedures will be described on the
LSI website. Applicants to (1) who wish to also be considered as
Lewis-Sigler Theory Fellows should so indicate in their cover letter.

We emphasize that we are interested in applications from students with
exceptional theoretical skills and a strong motivation to use these
skills to pursue biological problems, independent of the depth of
their research experience in biology. Many of our most successful
postdocs have learned their biology "on the job", and we think that we
provide an outstanding environment for such learning. Your assistance in
encouraging strong candidates for any of these positions to apply would
be appreciated.

The University has a clear vision and philosophy summed up as a desire
to be “/A research rich, business focused, professional University with
a global reputation for academic excellence/.” We are therefore seeking
to appoint high quality academics with strong research records and an
interest in good teaching and programme provision.

In the last 18-months in Physics/Materials/Electrical Engineering we
have built up research on *Wetting/Soft Matter* and strengthened other
existing research in Physics and Electrical Engineering in Photovoltaics
and Optical Communications. In the last 24-months in Mathematics we have
built up two research areas in Mathematical Physics and
Magnetohydrodynamics and are now creating a complementary area with
critical mass in Statistics. Over the last few years in Geography we
have built up strong research in Cold/Paleo Environments and are seeking
to add further strength in the broader Geography discipline. We have
also been strengthening our Computer and Information Science areas
(Intelligent Systems, Security, Games and Animation/Video, and Data,
Digital and Communications) and our Mechanical and Civil Engineering
areas (Renewables, Smart/Advanced Materials, Structures and Fluids).
This set of adverts is our second major recruitment campaign of summer
2014 and will see more than 25 new academic staff join us by the end of
2014.

The Faculty policy is to consider applicants, in the first instance,
based on quality individuals rather than precise fit to existing work,
and although adverts may flag particular strengths or desired expertise
in teaching and research, we wish to encourage applicants with quality
research in any area in the broader disciplines advertised as posts to
apply.

Full details are on the University website at
https://work4.northumbria.ac.uk/vacancies/.

The Faculty’s REF2014 submitted research is summarised at
https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/research/ and covers six units of
assessment with interests from all departments.

A more complete picture including taught programme provision and
additional research information and areas can be found on each
departmental web page at
https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/about-us/academic-departments/.

Interested candidates are welcome to contact the relevant Head of
Department or the Faculty Associate Dean for Research & Innovation,

4th August 2014 : postdoctoral position in Bristol

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Theoretical Biophysics : Soft &
Active Matter approaches to Synthetic Biology

Applications are invited for an BBSRC/EPSRC-funded postdoctoral Research
Assistant in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol
working with Tanniemola Liverpool.

Applicants should have (or be about to receive) a PhD in applied
mathematics, theoretical condensed matter physics, theoretical
biophysics, complex fluids, statistical mechanics or related area.

They must have a proven record of experience in the theory and
simulation of complex fluids, biological fluids,or condensed matter
systems. Experience in the any of the following areas is also desirable:
numerical simulations of active matter systems, numerical analysis of
soft condensed matter and complex fluids, Brownian dynamics simulations,
Molecular dynamics simulations.

With the goal of applying soft matter techniques in synthetic biology,
the research project involves the development of coarse-gained models
for synthetic biological systems in close collaboration with experiments
being done in Bristol. Examples of the synthetic biological systems
being studied are: the assembly and communication of membrane
encapsulated nanoreactors, the design of a scalable biosynthetic
platform for polyketide production in E. coli , or models of self
assembled peptide cages for presenting immunogenetic peptides and proteins.

Active materials are a new class of soft materials maintained out of
equilibrium by internal energy sources. There are many examples in
biological contexts. The key property that distinguishes active matter
from more familiar non-equilibrium soft systems, is that the energy
input that maintains the system out of equilibrium comes from each
constituent, rather than the boundaries.

The School of Mathematics is one of the leading centres for research and
teaching in the mathematical sciences in the UK, and offers a
stimulating and friendly environment with first-rate facilities.

The start date for the position will be 30 November 2014, or later by
mutual agreement. The contract will be a two year fixed-term contract
with the possibility of extension to up to 60 months.

Details about the job and how to apply can be found on :
www.bristol.ac.uk/jobs with job number
ACAD101002

6th March 2014 : 3 year Postdoc in simulation of glasses and crystals – Bristol

Simulations of colloidal glasses and crystals in new regimes

A post-doctoral research associate will be appointed to work on a project that will focus on vitrification and crystallization using novel simulation techniques. Amorphous materials have novel properties which make them important in emerging technologies, and at a more fundamental level, the glass transition and crystal nucleation are major challenges in  condensed matter. This research project unites simulation work with results obtained from particle-resolved studies in a joint simulation-experimental group. In particular, biasing simulation techniques will be used to closely match experimental results which aim to probe previously inaccessible regimes crucial to our understanding of vitrification and crystallization.

The principle responsibilities of the postdoc can be described as follows:
• To build on existing biased simulation techniques to approach the glass transition more closely than before.
• Implement biased simulation techniques.
• To directly compare with particle-resolved experimental data.
• To implement ab initio simulation packages (eg VASP).
• To interact with experimentalists in developing and maintaining analysis tools.

The position is to start after 1st May 2014 and is run for 3 years up to a maximum of 5 years.

An application may be made through the university of Bristol website :

12th February 2014 : Offre d’accueil de chercheur en stat/math ds labo de biologie

*Offre d'accueil de chercheur ou enseignant/chercheur en statistiques ou maths appliquées dans une équipe interdisciplinaire de biologie*

L'équipe "contrôle transcriptionnel de la morphogenèse des chordés" du CRBM, unité mixte de recherches CNRS/UM1-2, étudie le développement embryonnaire d'un groupe d'invertébrés marins, les tuniciers, et son évolution. Nous cherchons en particulier à comprendre comment les morphologies embryonnaires de ces animaux peuvent rester remarquablement similaires entre espèces, en dépit d'une divergence génétique extrême. Notre but ultime est de modéliser et simuler numériquement l'évolution
des programmes génétiques et morphogénétiques de ces animaux à partir de données expérimentales quantitatives.

Pour cela, nous avons dans un premier temps introduit dans l'équipe des approches expérimentales quantitatives aux niveaux génétique (séquençage de génomes individuels de plusieurs espèces, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq) et morphologique (Imagerie et segmentation 4D d'embryons vivants), que nous avons commencé à analyser. La seconde étape est maintenant de développer à partir de ce set de donnés des approches statistiques et/ou mathématiques novatrices permettant d'apporter une nouvelle vision des processus développementaux et de leur évolution.

Dans ce contexte, nous aimerions accueillir au sein de l'équipe un(e) chercheur ou enseignant/chercheur statutaire ayant de très bonnes connaissances en statistiques ou mathématiques, et un fort intérêt pour la modélisation mathématique et la simulation numérique de processus complexes. Une certaine familiarité avec la génomique et/ou la génétique des populations serait un plus mais n'est pas essentielle.

Notre équipe est constituée de biologistes et d'informaticiens, avec une forte composante internationale. Elle est affiliée à l'Institut de Biologie Computationnelle (IBC). Notre réseau de collaborateurs inclut l'Institut des Sciences de l'Evolution de Montpellier (ISEM), l'INRIA  (Virtual Plants, Morpheme), et plusieurs laboratoires européens, américains et japonais.

23rd January 2014 : Post-Doc Vacancy at Durham: Soft Matter and Biological Physics

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research associate in theoretical and computational soft matter and biological physics, to work with Prof Suzanne Fielding in the Department of Physics at Durham University on a project funded by the grant "RHEO-ACTIVE: Geometry, instability and activity in complex and biological fluids" from the European Research Council.

Depending on the interests of the applicant the project could be mainly computational, or combine numerics with analytical work, and would focus on one of two related research areas, and/or the interface between them:

The first concerns "active" soft matter, maintained far from equilibrium by internal energy sources: swarms of self-propelled microbes; the matrix of the biological cell in which molecular motors render the network capable of mechanical motion (e.g. in cell division or crawling); and growing biological tissue. The main aim is to forge a physical understanding of active dynamics and rheology taking place in the complex environments that are relevant to biological systems.

The second, related area concerns the non-equilibrium dynamics and rheology (flow properties) of complex fluids such as polymers, colloids, emulsions and surfactants, which undergo flow instabilities and non-equilibrium phase transitions when subject to a strong applied flow field. The work draws on concepts of fluid dynamics, statistical mechanics, nonlinear dynamical systems theory and chaos

The position is to commence in March 2014 or as soon as possible thereafter. It is a fixed-term post that will end 1st January 2017. Applications must be made online at http://www.dur.ac.uk/jobs/, job reference number 3244, where further details of the position may also be found.

The closing date for applications is 11th February 2014.

Further details about the department can be found at http://www.dur.ac.uk/physics/; and about Prof. Fielding's research group at http://community.dur.ac.uk/suzanne.fielding/

Informal enquiries are welcome and should please be directed to suzanne.fielding@durham.ac.uk.

15th January 2014 : Postdoc – Computational Physics of Nanocomposite Coatings – University of Surrey

There is a 2-year postdoctoral position available in the Soft Matter group at the Department of Physics, University of Surrey. Applications are now open, and close on 12th Feb. The position will work with Dr Richard Sear and Prof Joe Keddie. We hope to interview on 4th March. The successful candidate would apply computational soft matter techniques, e.g., computer simulation, and possible some analytical theory and statistics to the problem of understanding nanocomposite (polymer+inorganic) films. Understanding here means how they form, their microstructure, how they fail (i.e., let in water through channels/defects in the film). There is flexibility in the exact problems that will be studied and what techniques are used, but the work will be on these nanocomposites.

The position is one of two in the group. The other is an experimental position working on studying these films. The two research fellows will work together. It is funded as part of the EU FP7 project BARRIER-PLUS. This also funds work at the University of Lyon to make novel nanocomposite particles that will be studied at Surrey, plus a number of industrial partners. The successful candidate is expected to attend regular consortium meetings and co-write regular reports.

14th January 2014 : PhD opportunity: Theoretical Biophysics at the University of Sheffield

Funding is available for an EPSRC PhD studentship starting in October 2014 to develop theories relating macromolecular structure to properties in bacterial cell walls

This project will focus on developing models that predict the properties and morphology growth of bacterial cell walls based on their molecular structure. Cell walls are made of peptidoglycan, a disaccharide polymerised into polysaccharide which is then crosslinked by peptides. The polysaccharide is initially a long chain, cell growth has been shown to occur simultaneously with a degradation in the chain length. Newly developed methods for measuring the mechanical properties of individual cells have shown that the wall is about 20% stiffer in bacterial cells that have longer chains. Our aims are to develop a predictive model based on the statistical mechanics of networks to relate the change in modulus to the macromolecular structure of the polysaccharide network and to develop a kinetic model to predict how stress in the cell wall, due to osmotic pressure, couples with inhomegeneities caused by random fluctuations in the spatial density of degradation rates.
