Positions in theoretical physics and biophysics

9th June 2022 : PhD & postdoc – Living Materials – Lorentz Institute for Theoretical Physics (The Netherlands)

Dear Soft Matter subscribers,

I am inviting applications for one 2-year postdoc position and one PhD
position in the area of Living Materials in my new group at the Lorentz
Institute for Theoretical Physics (https://www.lorentz.leidenuniv.nl/
), part of the Leiden Institute of
Physics (https://www.universiteitleiden.nl/en/science/physics

You will become part of the newly completed team of researchers studying
Smart, Living and Active Matter (SLAM) consisting of the Kraft, Giomi,
van Hecke, Morin and Jawerth groups in addition to my own.

The search is ongoing, with an application deadline of *June
10**(tomorrow)*for both positions.

Living materials are made of cells or cell components, birds, or even
people and robots. They are driven from the inside out, leading to
phenomena such as flocks of birds and crowd waves at concerts. The
physics of this active matter is highly relevant to developmental
biology, as it helps us understand how organisms develop and maintain
their shape. Many of these processes are driven by single-layer
epithelial cell sheets in a feedback loop between active processes, cell
shapes and stresses that lead to emergent flows.

*Postdoc position:*

The aim of this project is, based on recent progress in extending vertex
models, to build a model that incorporates these processes from the
bottom up.  We will focus on understanding the emergent active
mechanics, flows, and rigidity of such materials that incorporate
microscopic internal pulling forces. At the same time, we will assess
how biology can functionalise them and make predictions for processes
such as gastrulation and germ band extension in drosophila or the chick
embryo, and separately for in-vitro systems such as MDCK sheets and
model organoids.

/Please apply here:/


*PhD position:*

In this PhD position you will work on the physics of living materials,
using theoretical and computational approaches from soft matter physics.
Several work areas are possible: deformable particle models of cell
sheets and their application to the cornea of the eye, vertex models of
cell sheets and embryonic tissue mechanics, and finally also the
emergent active mechanics and rigidity of materials with microscopic
internal pulling forces.

outstanding experimental colleagues.


A National Institutes of Health funded postdoctoral position in
theoretical biophysics is available to investigate biophysical
mechanisms of tissue morphogenesis starting in Spring or Summer 2022. A
long-standing collaboration between the _Manning group at Syracuse
University _and the _Amack group
at Upstate Medical University _brings together
mathematical modeling of mechanical properties of tissues with
experimental in vivocell biology in living zebrafish embryos to
understand how biophysical forces impact cellular behaviors during
morphogenesis. The successful candidate will work closely with faculty
mentors in physics (Dr. Lisa Manning), developmental biology (Dr.
Jeffrey Amack), and cell biology (Dr. Heidi Hehnly) to develop
predictive biophysical models for the mechanical forces and biochemical
signaling that drive morphogenesis, andcollaborate on developing
innovative image analysis workflows. Candidates who are interested in
the position and would like to know more details about the project goals

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,

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 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).

5th October 2021 : Assistant professorship – Physics – University of Chicago


1st October 2021 : Postdoc position available in Toronto, Canada

I am seeking a statistical physicist with a background and interest in numerics to work on two projects: (i) an inference problem, in collaboration with molecular biologists, using data on protein-protein interaction networks. Can we make sense of experimentally measured data on P-P interactions? (ii) the origin of life from inanimate matter. How do we describe life as a phase of matter?

The position is available immediately, subject only to visa regulations, and does not carry any teaching duties. I am flexible regarding work-from-home arrangements. If interested please send your CV.

*Grade 8: £42,149 - £50,296 p.a. *


The Rudolf Peierls Centre for Theoretical Physics at the University of
Oxford is pleased to invite applications for the inaugural
Leverhulme-Peierls Fellows. These prestigious, three-year postdoctoral
fellowships were created in conjunction with the appointment of Prof.
Shivaji Sondhi to the Wykeham and Leverhulme Professorship of Physics,
and are intended to both support the most talented theoretical
physicists worldwide at an early stage of their careers and to enrich
the intellectual environment of the Centre. It is envisaged that up to
three appointments will be made this year.

Fellows will receive active mentoring from members of the RPC but will
be encouraged and expected to set an independent research agenda in one
or more of the research areas of the Centre, broadly construed. To that
end, they will have access to substantial travel and research funds and
participate fully in the Centre’s vibrant programme of visitors and
seminars.  In conjunction with their appointment, the Fellows will be
associated with New College.

Candidates should be completing or have recently (i.e. normally within
the past 3 years) completed a doctorate in theoretical physics or a
closely related discipline.  Applications must be made online, see


Candidates will be asked to complete an Application Form, upload a CV, a
two-page statement of their research plans, and are encouraged, where
appropriate, to identify members of the RPC with overlapping research
interests. Candidates must also arrange for*one nomination
letter*and*two supporting reference letters*to be sent by email
.*The nomination letter should
make specific reference to the candidate’s potential as an independent
researcher and be accessible to a general theoretical physics audience.
Applications without a nomination letter fulfilling these criteria and
the two supporting references will not be considered.*The name of the
nominator and the referees should be provided on the Application Form.

All application materials including nomination and reference letters
must be received by noon on Monday October 18, 2021. Shortlisted
candidates will be invited to a remote visit and interview, to take
place in early November. Successful candidates will be notified by email
by November 30, 2021.
