2nd December 2021 : PhD position – modeling of active contractions in fly wings – Dundee University

Dear Martin,

By a stroke of luck, I got awarded a rather prestigious PhD studentship
to model active contractions in fly wings. The position is in close
collaboration with Jens Januschke, who is really great cell biologists.
It will involve image analysis and continuum modelling.

We are looking for a strong student with physics background interested
in working at the interface between physics and biology. Would you mind
sharing the attached ad with MSc students? I will also send it to
soft-matter, but I am first contacting people in person.

The ad says “home tuition fees”, but I am working on waving that. I was
told it should not be a problem if we have a strong candidate.

Many thanks,

Rastko

LPTMS Internship and PhD proposal: Correlations and temperature regimes in the one-dimensional Bose-Hubbard model

Contact : Guillaume Roux & Leonardo Mazza (guillaume.roux@universite-paris-saclay.fr, leonardo.mazza@universite-paris-saclay.fr)

One-dimensional bosonic gases, despite being described by a simple Hamiltonian, display rich physics due to the fact that quantum and thermal fluctuations are particularly strong in such low-dimensional system and compete with strong interactions [1]. Furthermore, thanks to the existence of powerful one-dimensional analytical and numerical techniques and to many experimental realizations, they have become a playground for the study of quantum fluids, in particular out-of-equilibrium. While thermal regimes are well understood for bosons in the continuum (Lieb-Liniger model) [2] and are relevant to recent experiments [3], we would like to systematically understand them for bosons on the lattice (Bose-Hubbard model). This is motivated by recent experiments [4] and in particular by the development of a new setup at Institut d’Optique (IOGS), which offers the perspective of an active collaboration with the group of Marc Cheneau.

Using exact diagonalization, matrix-product state techniques and quantum Monte-Carlo, we wish to explore the different regimes of the Bose-Hubbard model from zero to high temperatures, and from weak to strong interactions. We aim at devising simple phenomenological laws by connecting them with the behavior of elementary quasiparticle excitations in the system [5]. This would prepare for a PhD extending and confronting these results to two-dimensions and out-of-equilibrium situations relevant for the IOGS experiment.

LPTMS Internship: Conformal field theory: Integrable structures and statistical applications

Contact : Raoul Santachiara (raoul.santachiara@universite-paris-saclay.fr)


LPTMS Internship and PhD proposal: Modes non-linéaires de spin dans les condensats de Bose-Einstein à deux composantes

Contact : Nicolas Pavloff (nicolas.pavloff@universite-paris-saclay.fr)

De nombreux systèmes au comportement fortement quantique hébergent des phénomènes non-linéaires. On a ainsi pu observer des solitons, des vortex, des ondes de choc et des murs de domaine dans des condensats de vapeurs atomiques ultra-froides, dans des systèmes de polaritons condensés en micro-cavités, dans l'hélium superfluide, dans des supra-conducteurs... Cette double caractéristique, quantique et non-linéaire, fait de ces systèmes des modèles permettant de mettre en évidence des effets tels le rayonnement de Hawking et/ou l'effet Casimir dynamique. Dans de telles études, les fluctuations quantiques de l'état fondamental du système (le "vide" de la théorie) peuvent être non triviales grâce à la possible non homogénéité du vide, qui est elle même sous-tendue par la non-linéarité de l'onde décrivant le système.

Le sujet de ce stage (qui sera normalement suivi par une thèse) porte sur la description, dans une approche de champ moyen, de la dynamique non-linéaire d'un condensat de Bose-Einstein à deux composantes. Le diagramme de phase de ces systèmes est divisé entre un domaine de paramètres pour lequel le mélange homogène est stable, et un autre dans lequel ce mélange est instable (les deux composantes subissent alors une séparation de phase). Au voisinage de la transition entre ces deux comportements, les modes de densité relative des deux composants peuvent être décrits par l'équation de Landau-Lifshitz qui est usuellement utilisée pour décrire la dynamique non-linéaire de l'aimantation dans un système ferro-magnétique.

Le but de ce stage sera de se familiariser avec la phénoménologie du système (dans le domaine des condensats à deux composantes, mais aussi des systèmes ferromagnétiques) et de classifier les différentes excitations non-linéaires de spin dans l'équation de Landau-Lifshitz. Si le temps le permet, on s'intéressera également à la superfluidité de spin, aux oscillations de Bloch non-linéaires et à l'implémentation d'une configuration imitant un trou noir gravitationnel (un "trou à onde de spin").

Ces sujets seront abordés dans la thèse qui devrait naturellement suivre ce stage. Il s'agit donc d'une thèse théorique durant laquelle on s'attachera à décrire des systèmes susceptibles d'être étudiés expérimentalement. La thèse aura une composante numérique dont la proportion pourra varier en fonction de la pertinence d'une description précise (au vu des possibles réalisations expérimentales). Le cadre théorique général est celui des équations aux dérivées partielles non-linéaires (décrivant la dynamique quasi-classique du système) et de la théorie quantique des champs (pour l'étude des fluctuations quantiques).

12th October 2021 : PhDs in Quantitative and Computational Biology at Princeton University

Dear Colleague,

I am writing to encourage you to share information about our graduate
program in Quantitative and Computational Biology (QCB) at Princeton
University. QCB@Princeton offers
graduate education at the interface of biology with the physical and
computational sciences. We are looking for top students with interests
in genomics, biophysics, computational biology, systems biology,
molecular evolution, synthetic biology, and quantitative genetics. We
strongly encourage applications from those with stellar backgrounds
either in quantitative science or biology, and the desire to learn the
other. As quantitative skills reliably translate well across
disciplines, we particularly encourage applications from those with
undergraduate degrees in math, physics, chemistry, or computer science.

QCB is administered by the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative
Genomics. More information about the program, including how to apply, is
available at *http://www.princeton.edu/qcbgrad/*
, and a flyer for this program is
attached.

I appreciate your help in bringing this program to the attention of
undergraduates with appropriate backgrounds and interests.

22nd September 2021 : Lewis-Sigler Scholars Program at Princeton University

Hello,

The Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics at Princeton
University has an exciting opportunity that we would like to share with
you. We would greatly appreciate if you could please share this
announcement with qualified candidates.  Alternatively, if you would
like toforward the names and emails of
candidates whom you think might be qualified or interested in this
opportunity, we would be happy to contact them directly. Thank you very
much in advance.

*_Lewis-Sigler Scholars Program_*

Princeton University is pleased to announce a search for Lewis-Sigler
Scholars, a program aimed at attracting talented early-career scientists
(0-2 years from PhD) interested in quantitative approaches to biological
systems, supporting their intellectual development, and engaging them in
multidisciplinary education. The community of scholars will be drawn
from the full range of intellectual approaches represented at the
Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics. Thus, we are looking
for Scholars who take experimental, theoretical, or computational
approaches, drawing on their backgrounds in biology, chemistry, computer
science, engineering, or physics.

Appointment will be at the rank of Associate Research Scholar, renewable
for up to five years, with a competitive salary and research support.
Candidates should be able to identify mentors on the Institute faculty
who match their research
interests, but should not think of themselves as applying to
postdoctoral positions in individual laboratories. Rather our hope is
that the community of Scholars will explore new directions, enlivening
our research efforts. Scholars may have the opportunity to perform a
modest amount of teaching in our multidisciplinary courses, according to
a plan that they may develop in conjunction with their mentor(s). While
teaching, a Scholar may hold a secondary appointment as a Lecturer in an
appropriate department, pending sufficient course enrollments and the
approval of the Dean of the Faculty.

We expect new Scholars to join us in September 2022 for the Fall
semester of 2022-23; but start dates as early as February 2022 are
possible; applicants must be able to provide verification of PhD
completion by these start dates.

*For fullest consideration, all application materials should be received
by October 15, 2021. Candidates selected for interview will participate
in a symposium on November 30, 2021; applicants are asked to reserve
this date. *

**

/Please feel free to contact //lgallagh@princeton.edu
//with any inquiries about the LS
Scholars Program./

*How to Apply*

Please visit https://www.princeton.edu/acad-positions/position/21627
and submit a
cover letter, curriculum vitae that includes a list of publications, a
brief statement (2-3 pages) of research interests and goals, and contact
information for three references. ArXiv and BioRxiv postings should be
included in the publication list.  These positions are subject to the
University's background check policy.

Thank you very much for sharing this information with your colleagues
and students and for bringing to our attention outstanding candidates
for this position. We look forward to hearing from you.

27th July 2021 : Postdoc in Physics of cell motility at Johns Hopkins

Hi all,

I'm looking to recruit one or more postdoctoral scholars focusing on
theoretical and computational biophysics to work with me on the
physics of cell biology, in particular on cell-cell collisions.
Biological experience is nice but not necessary. Strong soft matter /
statistical physics background would be great! Please feel free to
forward to anyone who is looking for a position or colleagues with
graduating students.

Best,
Brian Camley
Assistant Professor, Johns Hopkins University
Department of Physics & Astronomy; Department of Biophysics

Full advertisement details below:

---------------------------------------------------------------

We are looking for one or more postdoctoral scholars to work on the
physics of cell biology using theory and computation with Prof. Brian
Camley at Johns Hopkins University. In particular, we have dedicated
funding to support a postdoc for a collaboration between the Camley
group at JHU and the Nain group at Virginia Tech
(https://www.step-lab-vt.com/). (See our recent paper:
https://doi.org/10.1073/pnas.2011815118 and related work here:
https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005239 ). Questions could
include understanding how cells adhere to fibers, how cell geometry
alters Rho GTPase dynamics, and developing data-driven models to
predict outcomes of cell-cell collisions.

We do have some flexibility in projects and funding, and candidates
who have additional ideas for projects in line with the group's
interests are encouraged to mention them in their letter!

*** To apply, please email bcamley@jhu.edu with a CV and emails for
references. Applications will be evaluated on a rolling
basis, starting immediately. ***

This position will be for one year, renewable for up to three years.

We use tools from soft matter and statistical physics, so Physics PhDs
are a natural fit but many other PhDs (Mathematics, Engineering,
Biophysics, etc.) are also good fits. Fluency in computational methods
is required; prior experience in biological systems is nice but not
necessary.

JHU is an affirmative action/equal opportunity employer; we welcome
applications from women and members of underrepresented groups, and
will do our best to ensure a safe and supportive working environment
for all group members.


26th July 2021 : Lectureships in Applied Mathematics at Bristol

Dear Colleagues,

Please bring the following position(s) to the attention of any suitable
candidates

*Lecturer in Applied Mathematics*

The School of Mathematics, University of Bristol, is seeking to appoint
one or more Lecturers in Applied Mathematics. Applied Mathematics in the
UK includes subject areas such as theoretical soft matter, fluids and
continuum mechanics. A Lecturer holds an indefinite appointment roughly
equivalent to an Assistant or Associate Professor in the US system
(depending on career stage).

The School of Mathematics is in a substantial Grade-II listed property,
providing office space for over 100 academics, 100 post-graduate
students and 80 post-docs, and is a state-of-the-art mathematics
teaching and research facility. The University is a member of the
prestigious Russell Group and is ranked among the top 10 universities in
the UK in the latest QS World University Rankings.  It has strong links
with the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, which focuses on
discrete mathematics and funds about 20 postdoctoral fellows in the
School of Mathematics

We are seeking to appoint an outstanding applied
mathematician/theoretical physicist, in the broadest sense, that will
support or complement the research activities of the Institute for
Applied Mathematics in the School of Mathematics at the University of
Bristol. Currently, the Institute has research activity in soft matter,
theoretical biophysics, complex materials, dynamical systems and fluid
dynamics. A characteristic of the Institute is its outward looking
approach to research, indicated by the fact that all of these areas
benefit from collaboration outside the Institute, both within the School
of Mathematics, and University wide.

The post-holder will be responsible for her or his own research
programme, carry out appropriate administrative tasks and deliver
excellence in teaching at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
We welcome applications from all members of our community and are
particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of
the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
The School of Mathematics is a supporter of the LMS Good Practice Scheme
aiming at advancing women's careers in mathematics and we therefore
particularly welcome applications from women for this post.
http://www.maths.bris.ac.uk/admin/life/women/

Informal enquires are welcome and can be directed to Prof. Jonathan
Robbins (Head of School, maths-recruitment@bristol.ac.uk) as well as the
Institute Director Prof. Stephen Wiggins (s.wiggins@bristol.ac.uk).

I am also happy to answer any questions you have.

Details about the job and how to apply can be found on

theoretical and computational research in bio- and soft matter physics,
closely collaborating with experimental groups.

I am looking for a strong and motivated scientist to work on the
collective organization of cells into biological tissues.  The goal of
the project is to use a combination of cell-based models (e.g. 3D vertex
models) and hydrodynamic models to develop predictions for large-scale
anisotropic deformation of developing tissues.  The successful candidate
will work on theoretical questions while at the same time closely
collaborating with experimental groups (e.g. at the Institut de Biologie
du Développement de Marseille).

The two-year position is fully funded by the Alan Turing Center for
Living Systems (CENTURI, http://centuri-livingsystems.org/), an
interdisciplinary research hub in Marseille that brings together
physicists, biologists, engineers, and mathematicians.  To apply for the
position, please send cover letter, cv, and email addresses of two
references to matthias.merkel@cpt.univ-mrs.fr. Applications will be
