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. *

//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

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
bcamley.github.io

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

Bonjour à toutes et tous,

Nous sommes très heureux de vous rappeler la tenue mercredi 12 mai de l'Alliance Day de l'Université Européenne EUGLOH

Cet événement festif a pour objectif de réunir les acteurs des 5 universités, étudiants, doctorants, chercheurs, enseignants-chercheurs, et personnels administratifs, ainsi qu'un ensemble d'acteurs d'un plus grand périmètre (industriels, région, associations, etc.). L'enjeu est très important puisqu'il s'agit, avec les contraintes actuelles, d'explorer le campus européen de l'alliance autour d'événements variés co-organisés par les cinq universités engagées et de susciter de l'enthousiasme pour un engagement européen de tous, qui pourra, le cas échéant, être alimenté ensuite par des outils de mobilité Erasmus+.

Il est très important de noter et de faire connaitre le fait qu'il n'est absolument pas nécessaire de mobiliser la journée complète. Chacun-e, étudiant-e, enseignant-e, tous personnels, nous sommes invités à nous connecter à l'événement en ligne pour y partager une partie du programme, à l'horaire qui nous convient.

Inscription : https://www.eugloh.eu/events/2021-alliance-day

19th April 2021 : Oxford Postdoc in Theoretical Biological Physics — deadline Wed 5 May, midday UK time

Dear colleagues,

We have a new 3-year PDRA position open for a project using statistical
mechanics and algorithmic information theory to investigate evolutionary
patterns in biological development.

The deadline is midday (UK time) Wed 5 May, and the application link
is here
.

I would appreciate it if you can  pass this on to anyone you think might
be suitable for this post.

Further details on the project can be found  at:
http://www-thphys.physics.ox.ac.uk/people/ArdLouis/evolution.shtml
  or
below:

many thanks,

Ard Louis

<<>> LONGER DESCRIPTION BELOW <<>>

*PDRA on Arrival of the fittest in development: *

"Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution." wrote
the great naturalist Theodosius Dobzhansky
. This is true, but
to really understand evolution, a stochastic optimization process in an
extremely high dimensional space[1], will require techniques from
statistical physics.

Darwinian evolution proceeds by two steps. First, random mutations
generate new heritable phenotypic variation. Second, the process of
natural selection ensures that phenotypes with higher fitness are more
likely to dominate in a population over time. Research in evolutionary
theory has mainly focussed on the second step, natural selection. Much
less is known about the first step, the arrival of variation. For a
popular introduction to this topic, see the charming book: Arrival of
the Fittest
 by Andreas
Wagner.

Much of our work in this area uses theoretical tools of statistical
mechanics and algorithmic information theory, together with computer
simulations, to study genotype-phenotype maps, which give access to the
structured role of variation in evolution.   As an example, see this
paper on phenotypic bias [2], where we quantitatively predict the
frequencies with which RNA structures appear in nature, without taking
natural selection into account. Instead, a very strong bias in the
arrival of variation dominates over selective pressures, a non-ergodic
effect we call the arrival of the frequent [3].

We have recently shown that such strong bias in the arrival of variation
also explains structural patterns in protein quaternary structures and
gene regulatory networks [4].  The big open question for this postdoc is
whether such patterns can be observed beyond these molecular phenotypes,
at the larger scales of the evolution of development.   Arguments based
on the coding theory from algorithmic information theory [5] suggest
that strong bias may hold also for some aspects of development, but that
first needs to be established (or falsified) explicitly.

In this project, you will use a wide range of techniques to explore the
mapping from genotypes to phenotypes in models of development, and to
study the adaptive evolutionary dynamics on these landscapes.   There
are close analogies to the question of why overparameterized deep neural
networks generalize so well [6], and part of the project may include an
exploration of these commonalities.

This is a challenging interdisciplinary project.   Strong quantitative
skills and a proven track record of creative and successful independent
research are the most important qualities we are looking for. 
Experience with biological physics is a plus, but not a requirement.

Finally, for an overview of our work in this area see this recent talk:

biological evolution

2021. The fellowship is for one or two years and is funded by the Simons
Collaboration "Cracking The Glass Problem”. The postdoc will be
supervised by Ludovic Berthier (Montpellier, France and Cambridge, UK).

The goal of the postdoc project is to elaborate on a recent breakthrough
in simulations of supercooled liquids and glasses (the swap Monte Carlo
algorithm) to elucidate the dynamical properties of these systems at
unprecedentedly low-temperatures that are out of reach of conventional
numerical approaches.

I am seeking candidates with good knowledge of statistical mechanics and
computer simulations of liquids.

I would be grateful if you would bring this announcement to the
attention of strong, creative individuals with a background in
statistical physics and encourage them to apply. Candidates must send a
CV, a motivation letter and have two recommendation letters sent to
ludovic.berthier@umontpellier.fr

The deadline for applications is April 15,  2021.

Sincerely,
Ludovic Berthier

5th March 2021 : Post-doctoral position in theoretical soft-matter at the « Interdisciplinary Laboratory on Nanoscale and Supramolecular Organization », CEA-Saclay, France

The theoretical understanding of solvation properties of molecules/macromolecules/
interfaces in the domains of biology, colloidal physics, electrochemistry
and material sciences requires an explicit molecular solvent level of description
with atom-atom classical force-fields. Beside the standard and time-consuming
numerical simulation, we have developed recently a powerful liquid physics
theory based on 3D classical density functional theory. Up to now, it is solved
within the HNC approximation which neglects the so-called "bridge" correlation
functions. The project consists in developing the theory beyond this standard
approximation by constructing various bridge functionals or functions which
extend simple spherical liquid approaches to molecular solvents
and solutes governed by highly anisotropic interactions and correlations.
The new theory will be implemented in the existing MDFT code and its
results compared to molecular simulations performed in parallel.

22nd January 2021 : [gsp] Voeux 2021 Graduate School Physique

Chèr(e)s toutes et tous,


Nous vous souhaitons une excellente année 2021, généreuse de succès dans la réalisation de vos projets personnels et professionnels et préservée des ennuis de santé.

L’année 2020 a été marquée par la création de l'Université Paris-Saclay dans le contexte d'une crise sanitaire inédite, qui a demandé à chacun d'entre nous des efforts importants, parfois des sacrifices, pour nous adapter et aider nos proches à s'adapter à un environnement fortement changé.

Cette année 2020 a aussi vu la mise en place de la Graduate School Physique, nouvel instrument de l’Université Paris-Saclay de coordination et de structuration en recherche et formation. Espace inédit de réflexion et de concertation entre acteurs de la discipline pour la définition et la mise en œuvre de projets communs, la GS Physique a pour mission de participer à la définition d’une stratégie ambitieuse en recherche et en formation, de promouvoir le contexte exceptionnel de notre université pour attirer de bons étudiants et des talents scientifiques, d'offrir aux étudiants une formation de qualité et assurer leur avenir, et de porter notre voix dans les instances universitaires.

La GS Physique bénéficiera de l'investissement au quotidien de chacun d'entre vous, dans les laboratoires et dans les services d'enseignement. La GS Physique mettra en avant la reconnaissance internationale dont bénéficie déjà la recherche et l'enseignement en physique menés à l'Université Paris-Saclay. Elle devra enfin recevoir de l'Université les ressources capables de soutenir ses missions et de porter ses ambitions.

L’année 2021 marquera une nouvelle étape pour la Graduate School avec l’installation de son conseil et de ses comités d'axes, instances collégiales pour lesquelles vous serez conviés à élire vos représentants lors du scrutin du 25 au 29 janvier.
Ce sera un moment démocratique important. Plus les instances de la Graduate School seront représentatives de l'ensemble de notre communauté, plus la Graduate School sera légitime dans ses décisions et ses prises de position, et mieux sa parole sera entendue au sein de l'Université Paris-Saclay. Alors, votez et faites voter autour de vous !

Nous faisons enfin le vœu que 2021 permette de retrouver sérénité et convivialité dans nos laboratoires et nos formations, et de poursuivre la construction de la Graduate School Physique dans un climat d’échanges et de rencontres toujours plus fructueux.

L'équipe de direction provisoire
Odile Stéphan, Sébastien Descotes-Genon, Sophie Kazamias, Mathieu Langer,

Objet: Post-doc in theoretical Physical Chemistry (2 years, Paris)
Dear colleagues,

I would like to inform you of a newly opened post-doc position within the ERC project SENSES (making Sense of Electrical Noise by Simulating Electrolyte Solutions), which aims at providing an integrated understanding of electrical fluctuations in bulk, interfacial and confined ionic fluids.

The post-doctoral fellow will investigate what we can learn from the charge fluctuations of an electrode on the structure and dynamics of the interfacial electrolyte. The project will make use of particle-based simulations with explicit or implicit solvent, realistic models for metallic electrodes in classical simulations and enhanced sampling methods. The possibility to extract information from charge fluctuations on, e.g., the concentration and diffusion coefficient of ions in nanofluidic devices will be tested in collaboration with a Paris-based experimental electrochemistry group.

This position is for 2 years, with an expected starting date between April and October 2021 (to be discussed with the candidates), at the PHENIX laboratory in Sorbonne Université (Paris, France). For more information and to apply, please see: https://emploi.cnrs.fr/Offres/CDD/UMR8234-BENROT-004/Default.aspx?lang=EN

I would really appreciate if you could share this information with any potential candidate you might know.

Thank you in advance and best regards,
Benjamin Rotenberg

20th November 2020 : Postdoctoral Research Associate at Durham: Soft Matter and Biological Physics

Postdoctoral Research Associate at Durham: Soft Matter and Biological
Physics (two posts)

Applications are invited for two postdoctoral positions in theoretical
and computational soft condensed matter and biological physics, to work
with Prof. Suzanne Fielding in the Department of Physics at Durham
University on a project funded by the ERC Advanced Grant ‘RheoYield’.

The positions are to commence in January 2021 or as soon as possible
thereafter. Because of the current situation regarding Covid-19, this
date is flexible and open for discussion. Each position is funded for 2
years in the first instance with the possibility of extending to 3 years.

The project’s overall aims will be to understand the deformation and
flow behaviour of so-called yield stress materials, which keep their
shape like solids at low loads, yet flow like a liquid at larger loads.
One possible focus could be on the statistical physics of the process
whereby a material in an initially solid-like state firsts yields and
starts to flow. Besides the immediate applications of the work to soft
matter physics, and potentially also to the fracture mechanics of hard
materials, yielding also governs geological processes such as
landslides, avalanches and lava flows. It also determines the reshaping
of active biological tissue under the internal stresses caused by
processes such as cell division, including during embryo development or
tumour growth. Depending on the interests of the candidate, the project
could develop a more specific focus on any of these particular areas.

The work will draw on concepts of statistical physics, rheology, fluid
dynamics, and related fields. Depending on the interests of the
applicant, the work could be mainly computational or could combine
numerics with analytical work. An interest in collaborating with our
experimental soft matter programme would also be welcomed.

Further details about Prof. Fielding's research group can be found at
http://community.dur.ac.uk/suzanne.fielding/, about the department at
https://www.dur.ac.uk/physics/, and about the Durham Centre for Soft
Matter at https://www.dur.ac.uk/soft.matter/

LPTMS Internship and PhD Proposal: Out-of-equilibrium dynamics of integrable open spin chains

Contact: Veronique Terras (veronique.terras@universite-paris-saclay.fr)

Video: Out-of-equilibrium dynamics of integrable open spin chains

Quantum spin chains constitute a rare example of quantum many body interacting systems where several important physical quantities can be exactly computed. This property (quantum integrability) together with numerous theoretical and experimental applications makes these systems a perfect testing ground for non-perturbative approaches in quantum field theory. One of the most intriguing (experimentally observable) features of quantum integrable systems including spin chains is their out-of-equilibrium behaviour. We propose to study, using integrability techniques, the out-of-equilibrium properties of open spin chains where a rapid change of a boundary magnetic field can produce a macroscopic change of the system. The goal of the internship is to learn the main methods of quantum integrability (algebraic Bethe Ansatz, separation of variables) and how these methods can be applied for the computation of scalar products and form factors in open spin chains. This first step will be necessary for the further study of the relaxation dynamics after a sudden change (quench) of a boundary magnetic field. This internship will ideally be followed by a PhD, in co-direction between V. TERRAS (LPTMS, Université Paris-Saclay) and N. KITANINE (professor, Université de Bourgogne). The location of the internship and PhD will be in LPTMS.

Dear colleagues,

We have an opening for a two-year postdoctoral position in the
Quantum Mesoscopic Physics group (Rodolfo A. Jalabert and Dietmar
Weinmann) of the Institut de Physique et Chimie des Matériaux de
Strasbourg (France). The position is funded by the French ANR in
the framework of a collaboration with the Laboratoire de Physique
et Modélisation des Milieux Condensés of Grenoble (Denis Basko and
Robert Whitney).

The candidate will theoretically explore how and where dissipation
occurs in quantum transport through nanostructures, when such
transport is known to be "non-local". He/she will use modelling of
local probes of nanoscale systems to address fundamental questions
of quantum thermodynamics.

This project is motivated by recent experimental breakthroughs in
local probes that have given unprecedented spatial resolution on
where such dissipation occurs, and require quantitative
theoretical analysis.

We are looking for a candidate with a PhD in theoretical condensed
matter physics, preferably with a focus on mesoscopic physics,
quantum electronic transport, heat transport in nano-systems,
quantum thermodynamics, and/or modelization of local probes. Our
team is dedicated to equal opportunities employment, and committed
to creating an inclusive and supportive environment for the
postdoc.

The targeted starting date is during the first half of the year
2021. The postdoc will be based in Strasbourg, and the
collaboration implies regular working meetings at Strasbourg and
Grenoble. Applications sent before 15 December 2020 will be
preferentially treated. They should be emailed to Dietmar Weinmann

LPTMS / PMMH ESPCI Internship and PhD Proposal: Stress reversal by a strong nonlinearity: an elastic sheet toy model

Living cells move thanks to nanometer-size molecular motors whose forces are transmitted up to the scale of the cell by a fiber network known as the cytoskeleton. On much larger length scales, individual cells generate forces that are similarly transmitted to the tissue level through the fibrous extracellular matrix. While the biology of these processes is rather well characterized, the simple problem of force transmission through these highly nonlinear elastic media is far from trivial, and leads to a conversion of local extensile forces to contractile stresses, with crucial biological implications.
To better understand this surprising physical behavior, we will set up a model force transmission experiment where the role of the nonlinear elastic medium will be played by a thin plastic sheet floating on water. By locally exerting extensile forces at the center of the sheet by inflating a balloon, we will directly observe how the forces are rectified through the wrinkling of the sheet. The goal is to help explain why the cytoskeleton is always contractile despite containing a significant number of extensile motors, and to inspire the design of counter-intuitive materials that contract when they should extend.

Expected skills: The student will have a taste for experimental physics. He/She will set up and run a model experiment, and participate in the theoretical analysis of the measurements.

LPTMS Internship and PhD Proposal: Frustrated self-assembly with multiple particle types

Self-organization is key to the function of living cells – but sometimes goes wrong! In Alzheimer’s and many other diseases, normally soluble proteins thus clump up into pathological fiber-like aggregates. While biologists typically explain this on the grounds of detailed molecular interactions, we have started proving that such fibers are actually expected from very general physical principles. We thus show that geometrical frustration builds up when mismatched objects self-assemble, and leads to non-trivial aggregate morphologies, including fibers.
While we have shown that collections of identical particles form aggregates of various dimensionalities, realistic biological examples often involve multiple proteins. We will thus investigate how collections of several types of different particles typically interact and interfere. Our study will first consist in developing multi-geometries variants of the lattice-based numerical model presented in the illustration. We will then ask whether species with different geometries tend to phase separate, or conversely whether the mutiplicity of interactions they offer eases geometrical frustration and favors co-assembly. We will also wonder how this combinatorics affects the dimensionality of the aggregates, and whether we can identify generic features of the particles that distinguish between the two scenarios. We will then conduct off-lattice simulations to assess the robustness of these scenarios. Finally, we will attempt to construct a mean-field theory describing the co-assembly of a large variety of particles (> 10 or so) thus revealing the interplay between frustration and combinatorial freedom in self-assembly.
Beyond protein aggregation, this project opens investigations into a new class of “disordered” systems where the disorder is carried by each identical particle, as opposed to sprinkled throughout the system. This will help define the much-debated notion of frustration in dilute systems. This project will be conducted in collaboration with Pierre Ronceray (Turing Center for Living Systems, Marseille), who will co-direct a possible PhD project.

Expected skills:
A taste for statistical mechanics and numerical simulations connected to analytical aspects.

LPTMS Internship and PhD Proposal: Self-assembly in space and time

Video: Self-assembly in space and time - Martin Lenz - LPTMS

Recent experimental developments have made assembling machines at the nanometer scales that mimic or even attempt to surpass the functions of biological objects an increasingly reasonable goal (as recognized in 2016). Despite remarkable progress in manufacturing individual nanometer-sized objects with controlled shapes however (see an example in the illustration), assembling many of them into larger structures remains an open challenge and an active field of research.
In this project we will undertake an additional challenge, namely to self-assemble such objects not only in space, but also in time. Specifically, we will explore the design principles for DNA origami particles produced by our collaborator Seth Fraden (Brandeis University, USA) to assemble over a given sequence over time, which will allow for an actin-like treadmilling (coordinated polymerization from one end, depolymerization from the other) of a polymer-like structure under e.g., temperature cycling. Suchmechanisms could be key in controlling the motor action of prospective molecular machines.
In a second stage (e.g., during a PhD), the intern may develop simulations tools to optimize particle shapesfor self-assembly of printed particles produced at PMMH in collaboration with Julien Heuvingh and Olivia du Roure.

Expected skills:  A taste for statistical mechanics, numerical simulations and working with experimentalists.

17th September 2020 : Post-doc position to study tumor invasion with spheroids embedded in extracellular matrix at Syracuse/Cornell Universities

Dear colleagues,
  Please highlight the advertisement below to any of your
students/postdocs who might be interested in a postdoc position which
starts with biophysics/soft matter theory and also gives some
opportunities to learn to do biophysics experiments. I'm happy to answer
any questions about the position. We're really excited about the project.

Thanks,
Lisa

===

How does the interplay between the mechanics of the extracellular matrix
(ECM) and the rigidity/fluidity of an embedded tumor spheroid
potentially prime the spheroid for invasion? The groups of Jen Schwarz
(Syracuse), Lisa Manning (Syracuse), and Mingming Wu (Cornell) are
seeking post-doctoral candidates interested in answering this question,
and related ones, using both modeling /and /experimental approaches. The
modeling will be conducted at Syracuse University in the groups of Jen
Schwarz and Lisa Manning to be followed by experimental tests of the
modeling predictions in the group of Mingming Wu at Cornell
University.  The candidate’s primary background should be theoretical
but with an itch to set foot in an experimental setting and work with a
leading experimentalist in tumor invasion, and her experienced lab
members, for some finite fraction of the duration of the position. The
initial appointment is for one year beginning in Fall 2020, with the
possibility of renewal for up to three years after which time the
successful candidate will be uniquely poised to tackle additional
problems in living matter where close feedback between modeling and
experiments is needed to help constrain the modeling. The salary is
negotiable based upon experience and research abilities.

Candidates must have a Ph.D. in Physics or a related field and have
demonstrated experience in theoretical/computational soft matter or
biophysics. To apply, please send an email to jmschw02@syr.edu
 containing (1) a cover email that includes
your philosophy on the feedback between modeling and experiments, (2) a
curriculum vitae, (3) a brief description of research interests, and (4)
the email addresses of three references.

Review of candidates will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled.

Further information about the research pursued by the three PIs is
available here:

28th August 2020 : Post-doc position in Nonlinear Dynamics/Statistical Physics at Jacobs University Bremen, Germany

The project is on transient processes and rare events in complex systems,
related to evolutionary game theory and heteroclinic dynamics. The focus
is on the prediction of transient phenomena such as spatio-temporal
pattern formation. Patterns range from temporal sequences of excitations
in neural networks to self-organized spatial segregation and the formation
of temporary alliances between species in ecological or social systems,
including extinction events, whose risk for occurrence should be analytically
estimated. Possible applications refer in particular to cognitive dynamics,
with transient heteroclinic processes being coupled and going on in parallel.
Very good programming skills and expertise with analytical calculations are
required. Experience in bifurcation analyses and large deviation theory is

desirable. The position is for 2 years with a possible start by the end of this year
or earlier. https://www.jacobs-university.de/directory/meyer-ortmanns .

9th June 2020 : Postdoctoral positions in self-limited assembly at Brandeis Bioinspired Materials MRSEC


De: "Ben Rogers" <wrogers@brandeis.edu>
À: MRSECpostdoc@brandeis.edu
Envoyé: Mardi 9 Juin 2020 14:01:27
Objet: Postdoctoral positions in self-limited assembly at Brandeis Bioinspired Materials MRSEC

Openings: Four Postdoctoral Researchers in Self-Limited Assembly, Brandeis University

(1, 2) Experimental Soft Matter (DNA origami and self-assembly);

(3) Computational Soft Matter (Modeling self-assembly pathways);

(4) Theoretical Soft Matter (Theory-directed design)

We seek four postdocs to join a multidisciplinary, tightly integrated team of four investigators within the Brandeis Bioinspired Soft Materials research center (Ben Rogers, Seth Fraden, Mike Hagan, and Greg Grason) to design and synthesize new DNA-origami building blocks, elucidate the mechanisms of their assembly into self-limiting architectures, and model the assembly pathways using theory and computer simulation. Our team of students, postdocs and faculty will work together across groups and disciplines to achieve our goals. This position offers ample opportunities for your professional development including participating in exciting cutting-edge science, gaining mentoring experience, and initiating your own research directions.

The team will develop a versatile class of DNA-origami building blocks to elucidate the fundamental physical principles for engineering components that self-assemble into large, but finite-size, superstructures. The self-assembly of size-controlled architectures is prevalent in living systems. The adaptive functions of biological materials, including viral shells, cytoskeletal filaments, and photonic nanostructures of bird feathers arise from the regulated finite size of self-assembled architectures. In contrast, most inorganic materials form unlimited structures like crystals. In this project, we will advance two complementary paradigms for bottom-up assembly of size-controlled architectures: one uses curved building blocks that assemble into self-closing structures; the other uses ill-fitting blocks that accumulate distortions upon assembly to form structures with open boundaries. 

This research addresses many fundamental questions in self-assembly: How do shapes, interactions, and flexibilities of building blocks control the assembly size? How can self-limiting assembly be adapted to distinct morphologies, like ropes, fibers, sheets or shells? Are there fundamental or practical limits to the sizes of controllably assembled structures? By answering these questions and more, we aim to develop engineering principles to create size-controlled architectures with high yield. A timely application envisioned for this new technology is a general anti-viral agent, e.g. a covid cure.

(1, 2) Design, characterization, and self-assembly of DNA-origami building blocks. Qualifications: Experience in experimental soft-matter physics or DNA nanotechnology. Tasks: Design and characterize DNA-origami building blocks and their subsequent higher-order assemblies. Individual building blocks will be characterized with electron microscopy (EM), including single-particle cryoEM. Assemblies will be characterized using EM, optical microscopy, and light scattering. The goal is to understand mechanisms by which components self-assemble into large, but finite-size, superstructures. Supervisors: Profs. Rogers and Fraden (Brandeis).

(3) Computational modeling of assembly pathways. Qualifications: Experience in computational physics, including molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations. Tasks: Simulate assembly of finite-sized architectures using molecular dynamics and Monte Carlo approaches. Supervisors: Profs. Rogers, Fraden, and Hagan (Brandeis).

(4) Theory-directed design of new assemblies. Qualifications: Experience in soft-matter theory, discrete geometry, and computational physics. Applicants are sought with interests in fields such as soft matter, thermodynamics, and materials science. Tasks: Design particle shapes and interactions. Simulate DNA-origami designs using available computational packages, including oxDNA and ENRG MD. Develop theoretical predictions of target assemblies and design rules. Supervisors: Profs. Rogers (Brandeis), Hagan (Brandeis), and Grason (UMass: Amherst).

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

Start Date: September 2020. Location: Brandeis University MRSEC, Waltham, MA, USA 

Submit applications to MRSECpostdoc@brandeis.edu and specify the position you are applying for. Please include a CV, a list of references, and a brief description of your previous research.

14th January 2020 : Postdoc Lyon / Physical approaches to human mobility / Alexandre Nicolas

POSTDOCTORAL OPENING on PHYSICAL APPROACHES TO HUMAN MOBILITY

A 1-year postdoctoral position funded by IDEXLYON is being opened at Institut Lumière Matière (Université de Lyon 1 & CNRS, France) on physical approaches to human mobility.

Human mobility is a major challenge of the 21st century, as ever-growing urbanisation and travel demand raise issues of congestion and environmental damage.

The project explores novel approaches, inspired from Statistical Physics, to establish the first laws that govern mobility. Indeed, mobility issues result from the coupled actions of many agents who interact
under some physical constraints, which makes such approaches promising. One primary goal will be to model the time spent searching for parking in crowded conditions. Despite the importance of the topic1 and
the central role given to parking policies, surprising little is known about the basic laws governing this search time. The recruited postdoc will also have the opportunity to participate in ongoing efforts
to develop continuous models for pedestrian dynamics.

Informal inquiries and applications should be sent to Alexandre NICOLAS, alexandre.nicolas@polytechnique.edu

Dear colleagues,

please find below 2 postdoc offers.

Best regards, Ludovic Berthier

1) A post-doctoral positions is open at ENS Paris to work in
collaboration with Francesco Zamponi and Ludovic Berthier. The research
project concerns the low-temperature properties of glasses, and the
nature of their excitations and defects. We want to systematically
explore the microscopic nature of tunnelling Two-Level Systems (TLS) in
these systems, following up on our recent preprints [arxiv:1910.11168
and arxiv:1906.06894]. The candidate is expected to have at least some
background in the physics of glasses, and on standard computational
methods such as Molecular Dynamics. Experience with LAMMPS is welcome.

Please check https://academicjobsonline.org/ajo/jobs/15616 for details

2) Applications are invited for a postdoc in theoretical statistical
mechanics, to work with Francesco Zamponi and Giulio Biroli at
ENS-Paris, in close collaboration with Grzegorz Szamel and Patrick
Charbonneau. The overall project focuses on obtaining a first-principle
statistical mechanics description of amorphous solids. The specific goal
for this position is to obtain a microscopic understanding of activated
hopping processes, which are elementary, non-perturbative corrections to
the mean-field description of liquids and glasses [see e.g.
arxiv:1407.5677]. Candidates should have a PhD in physics or related
field, with experience in the statistical mechanics of disordered systems.

14th November 2019 : Postdoc – theory/modeling block copolymer « soft crystals » – UMass Amherst

Dear colleagues,

I apologize, in advance, for the impersonal nature of this message.  I’m
writing because I’m actively searching for candidates for a
post-doctoral research position the area theoretical/computation
polymeric and soft materials at the University of Massachusetts,
Amherst.  The research projects associated with this positions are
described below in the area of theoretical modeling of complex block
copolymer assemblies (e.g. “soft crystal” phases).  Please forward this
announcement to any interested, well-qualified candidates.

To apply for one of these positions, an interested applicant should
forward a CV and three letters of reference to grason@mail.pse.umass.edu
.  The position is to start as early
as January 2020 and are for one year, but with the intention for renewal
for at least one additional year pending suitable  performance/progress.

Sincerely,
Greg Grason

*Non-Canonical, Triply Periodic (e.g. “Soft Crystal”) Phases of
Block Copolymers*
*
*
I am seeking to hire an outstanding candidate for post doctoral
research in the area of theoretical modeling self-assembly of
triply-periodic network phases of block copolymers (BCP).  The
project, in collaboration with experimental research with Ned Thomas
(Rice) and Bryan Coughlin (UMass), aims to understand the molecular
design principles required to tailor the architecture of BCPs to
target equilibrium assembly of triply periodic network morphologies
beyond the canonical phases (e.g. gyroid and diamond network phases)
most often formed by BCPs or other soft matter systems.  The
postdoctoral research would develop and implement a combination of
self-consistent field theory, strong-segregation theory and
geometric methods to model the thermodynamic selection of
equilibrium symmetry and topology of network phases and its
dependence on complex BCP architecture.  The researcher would
contribute to and benefit from collaborative efforts to synthesize
and assembly new BCP architectures and characterize their complex 3D
self assembly via novel microscopy methods.

Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Physics, Chemical Engineering,
 Materials Science and Engineering or related fields, and specific
research experience in theory and/or computational model of soft or
polymeric materials.  Previous research experience in theoretical
methods of polymer physics and/or complex geometry of
self-organization soft materials is preferred.

3rd October 2019 : Postdocs in biophysics – Princeton and CUNY

Dear colleagues,

We are in the midst of our annual search for postdoctoral fellows, both
theorists and experimentalists, interested in the physics of biological
systems.

Our efforts at building an interactive and collaborative environment
have been invigorated by the establishment of the Center for the Physics
of Biological Function, https://biophysics.princeton.edu
, a joint effort between Princeton
University and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
 We are a group of fourteen faculty working on problems across the full
range of biological organization, from single molecules to groups of
organisms, united by our search for common physical principles
underlying the beautiful phenomena of life.

Center Fellows are an essential part of our intellectual community, and
will have the flexibility to initiate and pursue projects that span the
interests of multiple faculty mentors.  We have a particularly strong
culture of theory/experiment collaboration, and individual Fellows often
have played key roles in developing these collaborations.  Successful
fellows have come both from PhDs in biological physics and from more
traditional areas of physics; some have had as many as four different
faculty co-authors during their time with us, while some have written
papers only with other postdocs and students.

We ask your help in bringing this opportunity to the attention of your
young colleagues.  Applications must  be made via
https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/apply/application.xhtml?listingId=12904.
 We plan to start reading applications by 15 October, and interview a
first group of candidates on 18-19 November, so we hope that interested
candidates will act soon.  Start dates as early as February 2020 are
possible, and we expect all new Fellows to join us by Fall 2020.

In addition to the Center Fellow position, candidates interested in
combining research with a modest amount of teaching should consider
applying to the new Lewis-Sigler Scholars program at Princeton, which
again is looking for both theorists and experimentalists
https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/apply/application.xhtml?listingId=13061

Finally, please also nominate your best theory students for postdoctoral
fellowships at the Princeton Center for the Theoretical Sciences,
https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/nominations/index.xhtml?listingId=12881

If there are candidates whom you think we should encourage more
directly, simply reply to this message with their names and contact
information, and we can do the rest.

With thanks for your help, and best wishes,

30th September 2019 : Postdoc – Modeling evolution of bacteria in the gut – LJP, Paris

Postdoc position: Modeling evolution of bacteria in the gut (Laboratoire
Jean Perrin, Sorbonne Université, Paris)

Context and project:
The gut harbors a complex microbiota whose impact on our health is
currently being discovered. In particular, it can constitute a reservoir
of antibiotic resistance, both in humans and in farm animals. Indeed,
99% of the bacteria we carry are in our gut. When we take an antibiotic
treatment, it can promote the evolution of antibiotic resistance in
these bacteria. It is therefore crucial to understand how microbial
evolution unfolds in the gut. In particular, the gut is not a well-mixed
environment, and the transport of bacteria and their resulting spatial
population structure likely has a strong impact on their evolution. We
aim to progress towards a better understanding of bacterial evolution in
the gut by developing models of microbial evolution on graphs, and by
taking into account gut flow and gradients, e.g. of nutrients or drugs.
The recruited postdoc will construct theoretical models of structured
populations, combining analytical calculations and numerical simulations.

Practical information:
The postdoc position is funded for one year and should start in January
2020 at the latest. The recruited postdoc will be co-advised by Claude
Loverdo and Anne-Florence Bitbol. The project will be performed in the
theory group of Laboratoire Jean Perrin (http://www.labos.upmc.fr/ljp),
a dynamical and strongly interdisciplinary scientific environment, where
all researchers work at the interface between physics and biology.
Laboratoire Jean Perrin is hosted by Sorbonne Université, on the Jussieu
campus, right at the center of Paris.

How to apply:
The candidate should have a PhD (or have it completed before the start
of the position) in a relevant field, and a strong experience in
modeling. To apply, please send a CV and a cover letter describing your
interests and previous work to claude.loverdo@sorbonne-universite.fr
and
anne-florence.bitbol@sorbonne-universite.fr

11th September 2019 : Postdocs – Physics of Biological Systems – CUNY & Princeton

Dear colleagues,

We are in the midst of our annual search for postdoctoral fellows, both
theorists and experimentalists, interested in the physics of biological
systems.

Our efforts at building an interactive and collaborative environment
have been invigorated by the establishment of the Center for the Physics
of Biological Function, https://biophysics.princeton.edu
, a joint effort between Princeton
University and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
 We are a group of fourteen faculty working on problems across the full
range of biological organization, from single molecules to groups of
organisms, united by our search for common physical principles
underlying the beautiful phenomena of life.

Center Fellows are an essential part of our intellectual community, and
will have the flexibility to initiate and pursue projects that span the
interests of multiple faculty mentors.  We have a particularly strong
culture of theory/experiment collaboration, and individual Fellows often
have played key roles in developing these collaborations.  Successful
fellows have come both from PhDs in biological physics and from more
traditional areas of physics; some have had as many as four different
faculty co-authors during their time with us, while some have written
papers only with other postdocs and students.

We ask your help in bringing this opportunity to the attention of your
young colleagues.  Applications must  be made via
https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/apply/application.xhtml?listingId=12904.
 We plan to start reading applications by 15 October, and interview a
first group of candidates on 18-19 November, so we hope that interested
candidates will act soon.  Start dates as early as February 2020 are
possible, and we expect all new Fellows to join us by Fall 2020.

In addition to the Center Fellow position, candidates interested in
combining research with a modest amount of teaching should consider
applying to the new Lewis-Sigler Scholars program at Princeton, which
again is looking for both theorists and experimentalists
https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/apply/application.xhtml?listingId=13061

Finally, please also nominate your best theory students for postdoctoral
fellowships at the Princeton Center for the Theoretical Sciences,
https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/nominations/index.xhtml?listingId=12881

If there are candidates whom you think we should encourage more
directly, simply reply to this message with their names and contact
information, and we can do the rest.

With thanks for your help, and best wishes,

10th September 2019 : Postdoc & tenure-track faculty positions – U. of Michigan

Dear friends and colleagues,

I am writing to let you know about several new opportunities at the
University of Michigan. Would you please bring these open positions to
the attention of any qualified young scientists you know?

1) The LSA collegiate fellows program
 and
thePresident's fellows program  are
two separate initiatives, each of which seek to recruit outstanding
young researchers in the natural and social sciences and
engineering whose research, teaching, and/or service will contribute to
diversity and equal opportunity in higher education. The University of
Michigan views these postdoctoral fellowships as providing an
exceptional opportunity to recruit potential new faculty to the
University by offering the possibility of _either a postdoc alone or a
combined postdoc and tenure track faculty appointment_.   (Note, in
particular, that both of these programs are appropriate for scientists
who have completed or will soon complete a first postdoc and are [close
to] ready to move on to an independent faculty position; when merited,
we have in the past been able to offer a regular, tenure-track position
through these programs, usually combined with a brief initial period
when the hire is officially a postdoc and has reduced teaching
responsibilities.)

2) The Center for the Study of Complex Systems is searching for
tenure-track faculty in complex systems science; this search will lead
to a joint appointment between complex systems and another academic
department or school at the University of Michigan.  More details can be
found in the job ad
.

Please note the relatively _early deadlines_ for all of these searches.

Yours,
  David

28th August 2019 : Postdoc – active matter modelling – Lund University

Dear colleagues,

I am searching for a candidate for a 2-year postdoc position in my group
at Lund University, Sweden, concerning hydrodynamic modelling of active
matter.

The research project concerns collective phenomena in suspensions of
swimming microorganisms, such as bacteria and algae, explored using
lattice Boltzmann simulations and analytical theory. In particular, the
project concerns the interplay between fluid-mediated hydrodynamic
interactions and the coupling with external or internal chemical
gradients, and their impact on collective behaviour.

Please help me spread the word to all suitable candidates:

Kind regards,

Joakim Stenhammar

theoretical approaches.

The experimental position will focus on developing new optical methods,
including laser interferometry, and combining them with
electrophysiology. Practical knowledge of optics or optomechanics is
essential for this work. For more information about this kind of
research, see Kozlov et al., /Nature,/ 2011.

The theoretical position focuses on modelling mechano-electrical
transduction, combining analytical and numerical techniques, and is in
collaboration with Dr. Thomas Risler at Institut Curie in Paris. For
this position, a good background and track record in Theoretical Soft
Matter, Statistical Physics or a related discipline will be appreciated.

5th April 2019 : 2 Postdoc openings | Theory of Biological Systems | Embl-Australia @ UNSW, Syndey

Dear Soft Matter Mailing List,

I am seeking talented and fun people to fill two postdoctoral vacancies
in my fledgling 'Theory of Biological Systems' group, part of the
EMBL-Australia programme at UNSW, Sydney.

Candidates should have prior expertise in either statistical mechanics /
stochastic processes, or theoretical soft-condensed matter physics (to
be interpreted liberally, encompassing both analytical and computational
work).

Possible projects span a variety of scales, from sub-cellular molecular
signalling to membrane hydrodynamics & embedded proteins, endosomal
transport & intra-cellular trafficking, tissue morphology & rheology and
even collective animal behaviour and evolutionary game theory...

The positions are for an initial 1 year, with the possibility of
extension up to a maximum of 4 (!) years.  The deadline for applications
is the end of this month: *30th April 2019*.  Interested/potential
candidates are encouraged to get in contact, or alternatively check out
my web pages , those of EMBL-Australia
and both the departments of Physics
and Single Molecule Science
at UNSW.  The application portal can be found
here
;
successful candidates are notionally expected to be in place by the
start of 2020 (visa complications notwithstanding).

Please do pass-on, share or distribute to any friends, students or
colleagues that you think might be interested!

Best wishes,
Richard

26th March 2019: Ph.D. Offer – Université de Lorraine

Title:
Numerical study of the critical point of random quantum spin models in high dimensions.

Institution:
Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie Theoriques (http://lpct.univ-lorraine.fr/)
Ph.D. adviser: Christophe Chatelain,
Faculte des Sciences et Technologies, Boulevard des aiguillettes, F-54506 Vandoeuvre les Nancy, France
e-mail : christophe.chatelain@univ-lorraine.fr, Phone : +33 3.72.74.57.47

Topic :
The context of this Ph.D. is in the field of Statistical Physics, and more precisely Critical Phenomena, i.e. the study of the singularities of thermodynamical quantities in
the neighborhood of a phase transition. From the point of view of Statistical Physics, the influence of disorder on the critical properties of classical systems is usually considered as
well understood. According to the behavior of speci fic heat at the transition temperature, the introduction of disorder in the couplings of the Hamiltonian will modify or not the
critical behavior. First-order phase transitions are softened by disorder and can even become continuous for a strong enough disorder. In dimension d = 2, an in finitesimal
amount of disorder is sufficient to make the transition continuous. Lattice spin models (Ising, Potts models) were intensively studied in the last decades in the presence of
disorder, mostly by Monte Carlo simulations. Quantum Phase Transitions are not driven by thermal fluctuations as classical phase transitions but by quantum fluctuations. The paradigmatic model is the quantum Ising chain in a transverse field. It was shown analytically that the introduction of disorder leads to a drastic change of critical behavior. The quantum fluctuations are overwhelmed by disorder fluctuations. Interestingly, several other one-dimensional spin models (Potts, Ashkin-Teller) were observed to have the same critical behavior in presence of disorder. The case of higher dimensions (d  2) could present surprises. Up to now, only the quantum Ising model in a transverse field has been studied numerically in dimension d  2. The aim of this thesis is therefore to extend the real-space renormalization procedure applied to the Ising model to other models and to implement it numerically to study the critical behavior.
The Ph.D. candidate is expected to have a good knowledge of Statistical Physics, to master a programming language and to be highly motivated. This Ph.D. will be funded
by the University of Lorraine for a duration of 36 months, starting from October 1st 2019. The Ph.D. student will be integrated to the "Laboratoire de Physique et Chimie
Theoriques" in a research group in Statistical Physics. He will have access to computer facilities to perform his calculations and will have opportunities to attend congresses,
conferences and topical schools.


24th March 2019 : Postdoc – Soft Matter/Biophysics/Biological Physics – Duke University.

Hi,

Applications are requested for a postdoctoral research associate to work
in collaboration with the cellular biology group of Michel Bagnat
(https://www.cellbio.duke.edu/michel-bagnat) and the soft matter group
of Patrick Charbonneau (https://chem.duke.edu/labs/charbonneau), both at
Duke University.

The project will focus on developing basic physical models of epithelial
and other tissues that surround the notochord in zebrafish. The work,
which is part of an ongoing multi-disciplinary collaboration, combines
in vivo work in zebrafish with computational and theoretical modeling to
understand two morphogenetic events following basic physical principles:
1-the emergence of segmented domains within the epithelial tube that
surrounds the notochord; 2-the formation of a single lumen in a tube.
The postdoc is expected to actively collaborate with members of the two
research groups, and is expected to participate in relevant local,
national, and international scientific events.

Candidates should have a PhD in Soft Matter Physics, Biophysics, or
related fields, with some experience in statistical mechanics and
computer programming. The start date should (ideally) be between July
2019 and December 2019.

Applications must be made by sending a letter of presentation and a
detailed CV, and by arranging for at least two letters of reference to
be sent to: michel.bagnat@duke.edu
Thanks for your consideration.
Best.
Michel Bagnat

Objet: Postdoc positions in the SPHINX group in Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris

Dear friends and colleagues,
I would like to invite applications for postdoctoral positions in my group in Ecole Normale in Paris. More information on http://postdoc.krzakala.org/
The positions are funded by the ANR-FNS French-Swiss grant PAIL (PIs : Florent Krzakala ENS-Paris, Nicolas Macris EPFL-Lausanne). The appointments are intended to start anytime from now to in the fall of 2019 and will be for 2 years.
This project on Phase diagrams and Algorithms for Inference and Learning aims at developing a better theoretical understanding of the recent advances in machine learning and high-dimensional statistics that have had a tremendous impact but call for more principled, and ideally rigorous, justifications.
This goal will be pursued in this project by building on the fruitful interplay between statistical mechanics of disordered systems, discrete mathematics and computer science that has produced a number of important results in the related fields of constraint satisfaction problems and probabilistic inference. The project is developed with Guilhem Semerjian and in collaboration with Marc Mezard, Lenka Zdeborova (CEA Saclay) and many groups in the Parisian region.
This project places an emphasis on interdisciplinarity, and aims to achieve progress by bringing together postdocs with different scientific backgrounds. More specifically, the candidates can come from different areas (Statistics and probability, theoretical physics, signal processing, applied mathematics, statistical physics, information theory, machine learning and neural networks) and are expected to bring their expertise. Successful candidates will thus conduct a vigorous research program within the scope of the project.
The members of the group also keep close contacts with other researchers of the Ecole Normale Superieure, of the University Paris-Sud and of the CEA Saclay, all of them based closed by. The ENS is conveniently located in the very center of Paris. The positions are endowed with travel and computing resources.
Keywords: Probability and statistics, Machine Learning, Signal processing, information theory, graphical models, Bayesian inference, compressed sensing, error correcting codes, spatial coupling, Belief Propagation, Message Passing, Tomography. Statistical physics - glasses, spin glasses, random optimization problems, cavity method, replica method - c, c++, matlab, julia, python.
Deadline: Apply before Jan 15, 2019 
To apply, and for further information: florent.krzakala@ens.fr and http://postdoc.krzakala.org 
The candidates should send their detailed cv (including list of publication, presentations, citations etc.), and 1 page letter of motivation explaining why they want to work on this subject, what is their related experience, and present a short project. Preselected candidates should be ready to provide two letters of recommendation at a later stage.

Dear Colleague:

I am writing to advertise a postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical / computational statistical physics, funded by an NIH R01 grant for a study on DNA replication.   The initial appointment will be for one year, starting September 1, 2019, and can be extended for two more years.  Please forward this announcement to any interested parties.  

My group has pioneered quantitative statistical modeling of DNA replication in cell populations.  New technology is giving information about replication in individual cells.  How much of the stochasticity seen in populations is due to different replication “programs” of individual cells?  The present position is funded as part of a collaboration with one of the leading biology groups in the world studying replication.  

The ideal candidate would have experience with computer programming, modeling of biological systems, statistical mechanics, and a PhD in a relevant field such as physics or biophysics, or an equivalent training.  But most important is intellectual curiosity, enthusiasm for research in this area, and an excellent track record in whatever field that has been pursued.  

The position will be based primarily at Simon Fraser University (SFU), which is just outside Vancouver, British Columbia.  The city is regularly ranked amongst the most livable in the world  with a wealth of cultures and amazing outdoor activities near by.  The position includes opportunities to interact with SFU’s active Biophysics and Soft Matter group

To apply, please send a CV, list of publications, and contact information (preferably in the form of email addresses) for two references to John Bechhoefer (johnb@sfu.ca).


Thank you in advance!
