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.

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.


LPTMS postdoc: Postdoctoral position in theoretical physics

Missions :

Le poste est financé avec les moyens du Conseil Européen de la Recherche dans le cadre du projet LoCoMacro (Local Control of Macroscopic Properties in Isolated Many-body Quantum Systems), présenté par Maurizio FAGOTTI à la session 2018 du ERC Starting Grants. Ce projet de recherche porte sur l'étude des effets d'inhomogénéités sur les systèmes hors d'équilibre après une soi-disante trempe quantique globale. C'est-à-dire l'évolution temporelle hors-équilibre d'états avec une énergie significativement plus élévée que l'état fondamental, pour lesquelles, généralement, une description statistique devient appropriée. Une particularité de LoCoMacro est l'intérêt porté aux effets globaux d'inhomogénéités qui se trouvent seulement dans une petite partie du système. Le projet s'intéresse à la fois aux modèles exactement solubles qu'on examinera avec des méthodes analytiques, qu'aux systèmes génériques lesquelles sont plus facilement abordés avec des méthodes numériques. Le groupe de recherche sera composé de chercheurs aux capacités hétérogènes et l'échange des savoirs et découvertes sera donc un aspect clé de son activité.

Activités :

Le postdoc contribuera à l'étude numérique et analytique de l'évolution temporelle des systèmes quantiques à plusieurs corps à basse dimension en présence d'inhomogénéités.

Compétences :

Les candidats doivent posséder un doctorat en physique. D'autres critères essentiels à ce poste sont l'intérêt pour la dynamique hors équilibre et la maîtrise des méthodes numériques pour étudier l'évolution du temps dans les systèmes quantiques à plusieurs corps à basse dimension (en particulier les techniques de réseaux de tenseurs); le candidat idéal est un chercheur indépendant qui souhaite améliorer les méthodes existantes et éventuellement développer de nouvelles techniques pour attaquer efficacement les problèmes hors équilibre sans invariance translationnelle.
Une bonne maitrise de l'anglais parlé et écrit est requise.

Contexte de travail :

Le candidat retenu travaillera sous la supervision de Dr Maurizio FAGOTTI et bénéficiera de l'environnement de recherche stimulant du Laboratoire de Physique Théorique et Modèles Statistiques (LPTMS).
Le Laboratoire (créé en 1998) est une Unité Mixte de Recherche CNRS - Université Paris-Sud et héberge une cinquantaine de chercheurs. Les thématiques sont centrées autour de la physique statistique à la fois dans ses applications au cœur de la physique mais aussi dans ses ouvertures vers d'autres disciplines.
Etant une unité de recherche commune entre le CNRS et l'Université Paris-Sud, le laboratoire a accès à des installations informatiques telles que le «mésocentre informatique» Paris-Sud et, pour les calculs à grande échelle, aux installations nationales telles que IDRIS.

Informations complémentaires :

Le salaire suivra les règles standard du CNRS et dépendra de l'expérience. En plus du salaire, un généreux fond pour les voyages est prévu. Le candidat retenu devrait prendre ses fonctions au cours de 2019; la date précise sera fixée d'un commun accord.
Les candidatures devront obligatoirement comporter:
- un curriculum vitae et les coordonnées d'au moins deux personnes susceptibles de donner un avis motivé sur le candidat; dans le même document, fournir une liste des publications comprenant une sélection de deux ou trois publications pour lesquelles l'importance du travail est discutée et la contribution du candidat est soulignée;
- une lettre concise de motivation décrivant l'intérêt du candidat pour le projet de recherche.
Toute candidature incomplète ne sera pas examinée.

Date limite de réception des candidatures: 14/04/2019.

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.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: inhomogeneous systems out of equilibrium

Responsable: Maurizio FAGOTTI + 33 (0)1 69 15 32 64

A fundamental concept in statistical physics is that the equilibrium properties of systems with a huge number of degrees of freedom can be described by few parameters, first and foremost the temperature. The latter can be tuned to modify the physical properties, and even the forms in which matter manifests itself, so-called phases of matter (e.g. solid, liquid, etc.). This generally requires a global control of the system, but there are also situations in which a local perturbation is sufficient to induce a phase transition. For example, pure water can be supercooled below its normal freezing point, remaining liquid; it is then sufficient to put the liquid in contact with a small piece of ice to induce global freezing.

When the system is not at equilibrium, its description becomes more complicated; nevertheless, a statistical description was shown to emerge when a quantum many-body system, isolated from the rest, is left to evolve for a long time. Being isolated, the system can not relax to an equilibrium state, but, when scrutinised locally, it appears as if it were prepared at an effective temperature or in some exotic state of matter. Arguably, the best understood situation is a quantum quench of a global parameter in a translationally invariant quantum many-body system.

In this thesis we will go beyond the assumption of translational invariance, studying the effects of inhomogeneities on the nonequilibrium dynamics after quantum quenches.

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!

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Models and Time Series Analysis for Human Sports Performance

Responsable: Thorsten Emig + 33 (0)1 69 15 31 80

This project is directed to students with a strong background in quantitative methods from statistical physics, and ideally some knowledge of machine learning, computational physiology and statistical analysis of large data. Interest in sports performance would be useful. Expected are both analytical and computer programming
skills.

Models for human sports performances of various complexities and underlying principles have been proposed, often combining data from world record performances and bio-energetic facts of human physiology. For running, we were the first to derive an observed logarithmic scaling between world record running speeds and times from basic principles of metabolic power supply. We showed that various female and male record performances (world, national) and also personal best performances of individual runners for distances from 800m to the marathon are excellently described by our approach, with mean errors of (often much) less than 1%.

Main goal of this thesis project is the data-driven modeling of physiological and biomechanical processes in endurance sports, in particular running. The physiological and mechanical response of humans to exercise constitutes a complex system that involves many dynamical variables. Examples are the beat-to-beat intervals between heart beats, oxygen uptake, and stride frequency to name a few. These variables show inherent fluctuations that can be correlated.

Time series analysis can be used to detect these correlations which can show fractal scaling. This has been demonstrated for patients with cardiac diseases by Goldberger (see references below). Methods include detrended fluctuation analysis (DFA), multifractal DFA, EMD, multiscale entropy, and transfer entropy.

Models for complex physiological systems shall be constructed by learning from data. For example, running performance has been studied using recent advances in machine learning (see reference by Blythe and Kiraly). One aspect of this project is to apply machine learning to complex physiological data for endurance exercise and compare the so obtained results to findings from other methods.

This project potentially involves collaborations with Prof. A. Goldberger (Harvard Medical School) and Prof. E. Räsänen (TUT, Finland).

The official application can be found on the web site of Ecole Doctorale at https://www.edpif.org/fr/recrutement/prop.php

27th November 2018 : Postdoc – data-driven modeling – ENS Paris

Dear colleague,

We are looking for a post-doc candidate at the crossroad of statistical
physics, machine learning, and computational biology, interested in the
theoretical and applied aspect of data-driven modeling.

Thanks to recent progress in machine learning, machine learning can be
used to establish models of complex systems, which remain out of reach
with standard first-principle methods. The goal of the post doctoral
project will be two-fold:

(1) develop unsupervised machine learning tools and apply statistical
physics methods and concepts to better understand how these methods
operate and learn from data. Different unsupervised architectures will be
studied and compared, including Boltzmann Machines, Restricted Boltzmann
Machines, and (Variational) Autoencoders.

(2) apply these methods to model proteins from sequence data, with special
emphasis on the prediction of mutational effects and mutational paths in
the trypsin enzyme, in connection with high-throughput experiments by C.
Nizak and O. Rivoire at College de France.

The post-doc will be located in the Department of Physics at the Ecole
Normale Superieure in Paris, under the supervision of S. Cocco and R.
Monasson. The duration of the position is of two years. Post-doc
candidates are expected to have solid knowledge in statistical physics,
inference methods and data analysis, and both analytical and computer
programming skills. Moreover he/she should have a deep interest and
possibly a previous experience in computational biology and/or
bioinformatics.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Amorphous materials under stress

Responsable:

Alberto ROSSO + 33 (0)1 69 15 31 79

Most of the materials employed in our everyday life have the amorphous structure of a collection of randomly packed particles. Their density and the strength of their interactions strongly depend on the material and are at the origin of a large spectrum of physical properties, much richer than the one of cristalline matter.
For example, under shear, gels and foams can flow as liquids, while glasses and ceramics break into solid pieces. Today we know that these behaviours are the macroscopic manifestations of genuine dynamical phase transitions anticipated by sudden reorganisations called avalanches. Avalanches are recorded at very different scales, from the micrometers of plastic readjustments to the kilometres of huge earthquakes. In analogy with what we know for equilibrium, these divergent scales indicate universality and strong fluctuations, but the dynamical transition of driven systems are much richer and mysterious due to effect of the preparation and to the temporal correlations.

In this thesis we will study the avalanche dynamics of amorphous matter using the tools developed in the context of disordered systems and the statistics of rare events. Connections with (many) body localisation physics will be explored.

Postdoctoral position in mathematical modeling of biological networks

*Title*Dynamic modeling of iron-linked redox perturbations in Acute
Myeloid Leukemia

*Context*Acute Myeloid Leukemia are a class of deadly hematopoietic
diseases with an astonishing large variety of driver mutations.
Diagnosis usually occurs during a blast crisis whereby leukemic clones
escape the bone marrow and invade peripheral blood. The general
objective of the project, funded by the french /Plan Cancer/ (/Cancer
Systems Biology/ program), is to sort out the main molecular differences
between normal and leukemic cells so as to identify new and innovative
therapeutic targets.

*Project*The successful candidate will be in charge of developing models
of energy-related networks involved in Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
Several modules are envisioned, such as iron homeostasis, control of
cell cycle, hypoxia responsive network.

New computational methods to perform /set-based simulations/ will be
developed in collaboration with one of the partners of the project
(Verimag lab). We use these techniques to cope with the large
uncertainties in model parameters. Recent methods for model reduction
will be assessed, and possibly new ones developped. He/she will also
interact with biologists to integrate experimental data generated in the
frame of the project, and extract biological knowledge from the models.

*Profile * Good knowledge in at least some of the following topics:
numerical methods, optimization, modeling methods (sensitivity analysis,
parameter inference), bayesian statistics.

Good programming skills (in e.g. python, julia). Basic knowledge of
molecular biology is desirable. A previous interdisciplinary experience
in connection with biology would be a plus.

*Scientific environment*The successful candidate will be part of an
interdisciplinary consortium called ‘Dynamical Modeling of LAMs’
involving four labs and gathering biologists, physicians, modellers,
computer scientists, and physicists.

She/He will also benefit from the excellent scientific environment of
the TIMC-IMAG laboratory (CNRS & UGA) which gathers scientists and
clinicians towards the use of computer science and applied mathematics
for understanding and controlling normal and pathological processes in
biology and healthcare. The TIMC-IMAG laboratory is located in Grenoble,
one of the biggest academic cities in France, with the French Alps nearby.

*Duration* 21 months

*Application* Send your CV, a motivation letter, and the name of two
references to Eric Fanchon, eric.fanchon@univ-grenoble-alpes.fr

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Quantum entanglement in fermionic systems via random matrix theory

Responsables:

Satya MAJUMDAR + 33 (0)1 69 15 64 65

Grégory SCHEHR + 33 (0)1 69 15 76 41

During the last few years, it has been shown that non-interacting fermions in presence of a trap can be studied using the powerful techniques of random matrix theory, and more generally of determinantal point processes. This toolbox allowed to study analytically the interplay between quantum and thermal fluctuations in challenging physical situations where standard approaches of many-body physics, like the Local Density Approximation, fail.

Currently, there is an intense activity, both experimental and theoretical, concerning the relation between quantum entanglement and the thermodynamic entropy in many-body quantum systems. Many results remain currently conjectural. In this project, we would like to explore these questions, for instance the quantum entanglement at finite temperature, in a class of solvable models of trapped fermions, that are known to be related to RMT models at zero temperature.


LPTMS PhD Proposal: Extreme Value Statistics in Stochastic Processes

Responsables:

Satya MAJUMDAR + 33 (0)1 69 15 64 65

Grégory SCHEHR + 33 (0)1 69 15 76 41

The extreme value statistics in stochastic processes is a subject of growing interest with applications from climate science to finance. Given a stochastic time-series over a given time interval [0,t], the typical questions are: what is the statistics of the maximum (or minimum) value of the process in this time window, at what time the maximum (or the minimum) is achieved, what is the time gap between the maximum and minimum etc.? Even for simple stochastic processes such as a one dimensional Brownian motion, these questions are often nontrivial. In the thesis, these questions would be addressed for a Brownian motion to start with, and progressively other types of stochastic processes would be studied.


LPTMS PhD Proposal: Mean field games

Responsable: Denis ULLMO + 33 (0)1 69 15 74 76

Mean field games present a new area of research at the boundary between applied mathematics,‭ ‬social sciences,‭ ‬engineering sciences and physics.‭ ‬It has been initiated a decade ago by Pierre-Louis Lions‭ (‬recipient of the‭ ‬94‭ ‬Fields medal‭) ‬and Jean-Michel Lasry as a new and promising tool to study many problem of social sciences,‭ ‬and with an explicit mention of the influence of concepts coming from physics‭ (‬the notion of‭ “‬mean field approximation‭”)‬.‭ ‬This field has since then grown significantly,‭ ‬and after a period where mainly stylized models where introduced,‭ ‬we witness now the appearance of‭ (‬necessarily more involved‭) ‬mean field game models closer to practical applications in finance,‭ ‬vaccination policies,‭ ‬or energy management through smart electronics.

Up to now,‭ ‬the development of Mean Field Games has mainly originated from the mathematics and economic communities.‭ ‬Mean Field Games theory is,‭ ‬however,‭ ‬by essence a multi-disciplinary field for which the input of physicists is much needed.‭ ‬Indeed,‭ ‬as important as they are,‭ ‬the studies of internal consistency and the numerical schemes developed by mathematicians cannot replace the deeper
understanding of the behavior of these models,‭ ‬obtained in particular through powerful approximation schemes,‭ ‬that physicists‭ (‬and essentially only them‭) ‬know how to provide.

For physicists a good‭ “‬entry point‭” ‬to the problematic of Mean Field Games is through the formal,‭ ‬but deep,‭ ‬connection between Mean Field Games and the nonlinear Schroedinger‭ (‬or Gross-Pitaevskii‭) ‬equation.‭ ‬This connection makes it possible to import to the field of Mean Field Games a variety of tools‭ (‬ranging from exact methods and approximation schemes to intuitive qualitative descriptions‭) ‬which have been developed along the year by physicists when studying interacting bosons or gravity waves in inviscid fluids.

The general subject of the proposed thesis is the study of Mean Field Games from a physicist point of view,‭ ‬that is with an objective to provide a true understanding‭ (‬through the identification of the relevant parameters and scale and the development of approximation schemes in the regimes of interest‭) ‬of the solutions of Mean Field Games equations.‭ ‬More specifically,‭ ‬two possible directions the proposed PhD ‬could take would be:

1.‭ ‬The study of phase transition in Mean Filed games.

2.‭ ‬To use the knowledge obtained‭ ‬on simple models to study more complicated Mean Field Games,‭ ‬and in particular address more realistic‭ (‬less stylized‭) ‬Mean Field Games.

These studies should imply a mix between analytical and numerical works,‭ ‬somewhat more shifted on the analytical side.


LPTMS PhD Proposal: Renormalization group analysis of frustrated self-assembly

Responsable: Martin LENZ + 33 (0)1 69 15 32 62

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 our current numerical simulations let us monitor the aggregate formed by copies of a given irregular particle, we do not yet understand its dimensionality from first principles. Here we will tackle this problem using ideas inspired by the renormalization group. We will thus represent the shape of the particle as an orientation-dependent coupling matrix between two neighbors. By repeatedly applying a decimation procedure a la Kadanoff to the system, we will drastically reduce the enormous
space of all possible coupling matrices to a few fixed points corresponding to finite clusters, fibers, sheets and crystals. An internship will start with a transfer matrix calculation applying this procedure to a 1D system. A PhD will involve some non-trivial 3D discrete geometry and will likely require delving into
some linear algebra to understand the properties of our matrix universality classes.

Beyond protein aggregation, this project opens investigations into a new class of ''disordered'' systems where the disorder is carried by each identical particle instead of sprinkled throughout the system, and will help define the much-debated notion of frustration in dilute systems. This collaboration with Pierre Ronceray (Princeton U.) will ideally lead to collaborations with the experimental groups of Seth Fraden (Brandeis U.) and Friedrich Simmel (T.U. Munich).

LPTMS Internship Proposal: Searching for topological physics in dissipative Ytterbium gases

Dissipation is ubiquitous in experiments on quantum matter and it typically reduces the timescales
over which pristine quantum phenomena can be investigated or lowers the quality of the
measurements. It’s an “enemy” that has to be fought harshly and roughly. In this internship we
will change the paradigm and consider dissipation as a resource. Dissipation can induce genuine
and interesting quantum effects (see for instance Ref. 1) and we are interesting in proposing
realistic experiments that can reveal them.

We will focus on the experiments on ultracold ytterbium gases that are currently realized in
several laboratories around the world, among which those at Collège de France in Paris (see
Ref. 2). The goal of this internship is to characterize theoretically the interplay between (i) the
dissipative mechanisms that distinguish these atoms and (ii) the unavoidable presence of atomatom
interactions (Ref. 3 presents some first data obtained in Hamburg, Germany). We will
inspect whether the dissipation-induced topological properties presented in the model of
reference 4, where interactions are neglected, can be observed in Ytterbium gases, where
interactions cannot be neglected. The main investigation tool will be advanced numerical
algorithms based on matrix-product states, that allow for the study of dissipative many-body
systems (see Ref. 5 for an article where such methods have been used to characterize dissipative
topological models).

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Algebraic area enumeration of two-dimensional closed random lattice walks

Responsable: OUVRY Stéphane + 33 (0)1 69 15 36 30

Thesis proposal :
The quantum Hofstadter problem [1] (a charge particle hopping on a square lattice coupled to a perpendicular magnetic field) is fascinating for several reasons : its spectrum is a rare example of a fractal emerging from quantum mechanics, its transport properties can shed an interesting light on the quantum Hall effect,...
The Hofstadter model happens to be related to closed random walks on a square lattice,more precisely there is a mapping between the n-th moment of the Hofstadter Hamiltonian and the generating function for the enumeration of close lattice walks of length n enclosing a given algebraic area.
Recently [2] a formula for the algebraic area enumeration has been obtained starting from the so called Kreft coefficients [3] which encode the Schrodinger equation for the Hofstadter model.
Several key observations made in [2] and on which the enumeration relies happen to be incompletely understood and not yet seated on solid mathematical grounds.
Also the final enumeration formula has a complexity which increases exponentially with n making it difficult to be used for walks with a large number of steps.

The thesis will focus on a better understanding and improving of [2] namely :
i) derive some or all of the observations in [2] which lead to the enumeration formula
ii) interpret in terms of 1d random walks characteristics (if possible) the building blocks of the enumeration formula and use this interpretation to push further
its understanding
iii) also if possible simplify and reduce the formula to make it more tractable for the algebraic aera enumeration of walks with a large number of steps Last but not the least, coming back to the Hofstadter model via the mapping discussed above,can the enumeration formula gives new insights on the Hofstadter spectrum in the irrational limit where the flux per plaquette becomes an irrational number?

Last but not the least, coming back to the Hofstadter model via the mapping discussed above, can the enumeration formula gives new insights on the Hofstadter spectrum in the irrational limit where the flux per plaquette becomes an irrational number?

28th September 2018 : Poste MdC 28-29 Sorbonne Université « mécanique statistique hors d’équilibre »

Chers collègues

Le Laboratoire de Physique Théorique de la Matière Condensée (LPTMC) de
Sorbonne Université (campus Pierre et Marie Curie) devrait bénéficier de
l'ouverture d'un poste de Maître de Conférences au printemps 2019 sur
les sections 28 et 29. Ce poste est thématiquement fléché vers la
*mécanique statistique hors d'équilibre* avec un profil très ouvert
quant aux systèmes étudiés et aux concepts et aux méthodes employés.

Le LPTMC est structuré en trois pôles et le recrutement à venir concerne
principalement les pôles 1 et 2: "Physique aux interfaces" et "Systèmes
désordonnés et phénomènes hors équilibre". Les problèmes étudiés au
laboratoire et associés à ce profil concernent essentiellement: la
dynamique vitreuse, les  processus de recherche de cible, la physique du
chromosome et les processus cellulaires, les systèmes avec interaction à
longue portée, la turbulence de Navier-Stokes, les milieux granulaires,
la physico-chimie des liquides complexes et les applications en
géo-sciences, les processus de réaction-diffusion, le transport en
milieux confinés, la physique de la matière active, etc. Les
méthodes employées couvrent un large spectre allant des techniques
analytiques aux simulations numériques.

Les candidat-e-s sont vivement encouragé-e-s à prendre contact avec le
laboratoire pour définir un projet de recherche.
Les personnes à contacter (avec comme sujet du mail: "poste MdC au
LPTMC") sont
Bertrand Delamotte, directeur du LPTMC (delamotte@lptmc.jussieu.fr)
Annick Lesne (lesne@lptmc.jussieu.fr)

Le poste n'a pas de fléchage particulier pour ce qui est de
l'enseignement et s'effectuera donc aux niveaux Licence et Master au
sein de l'UFR de Physique.

Pour rappel: la candidature à un poste de Maître de Conférences
nécessite d'avoir la "qualification". Voir:

LPTMS Internship Proposal: Pairing and topological phases in cold atoms with long-range interaction

Correlated quantum systems in low dimensions show fascinating properties that distinguish them from their three dimensional counterparts as a consequence of the enhancement of quantum fluctuations. Interacting fermions and bosons in one-dimension (1D) can exhibit many exotic phases of matter. Although short-range interacting particles in 1D are rather well understood, much less is known for long-range interacting systems.Seminal efforts are underway in the control of artificial quantum systems to simulate arbitrary model Hamiltonians which are now barely accessible to classical computation methods. Ultra-cold dipolar or Rydberg atoms can realize Bose or Fermi gases with long-range interactions.

18th September 2018 : Postdoctoral position in Biomathematics (Milan)

À: "Giuseppe Gaeta" <Giuseppe.Gaeta@unimi.it>
Envoyé: Mardi 18 Septembre 2018 18:32:09
Objet: Postdoctoral position in Biomathematics (Milan)

Dear
Friends,

We should have a postdoctoral position (2 years, renewable) in Milano
for Biomathematics. This is to be meant in a wide sense, including
activities with a Physics flavour, albeit it would surely be
appreciated if the postdoc is working in any area already active in the
Department (tumor dynamics; hearth electrophysiology; angiogenesis;
biopolymer dynamics; evolution and coevolution). I would personally be
specially interested in the last two themes, but we are anyway looking
for the best candidate in the area.

This is a joint position for the Mathematical Physics, Analysis and
Probability groups, and we would surely be happy of any project
bridging at least two of these topics; the call should be published in
the first half of October (see
http://www.unimi.it/ricerca/assegni_ricerca/69578.htm and follow the
"tipo A" link) and will require a (short) research project.

The salary should be around 21.000 E/year gross, plus a mobility
allowance for candidates - inluding those of italian nationality -
resident abroad at the moment of applying, of 600 E/month.

Clare Boothe Luce Assistant Professor of Physics

The Department of Physics and Biophysics at the University of San Diego
invites applications for a tenure-track Clare Boothe Luce assistant
professorship to start in Fall 2019. This prestigious position, a result
of an award from the Henry Luce Foundation, includes exceptional career
development support along with a competitive salary and a generous
start-up package. The award terms limit the position to female
candidates who have a doctorate in physics and are US citizens or
permanent residents. The successful candidate should demonstrate the
potential for excellence in undergraduate teaching, and the capacity to
establish a vigorous research program tailored to undergraduates. The
candidate will also have the opportunity to play a key role in the
burgeoning Physics-Engineering program; and help develop a new
Physics-Community Partnership Program (P-CoPP) that will partner
undergraduates with female mentors from industry and R1 institutions.
These initiatives are strategically designed to promote diversity and
inclusion in STEM, and increase retention and success of
underrepresented students in STEM graduate programs and careers. Given
these initiatives, preference will be given to research expertise in
appliedexperimental physics, though all research areas are welcome.

The Physics and Biophysics Department, within the College of Arts and
Sciences of the University of San Diego, is deeply committed to
excellence in undergraduate physics education in a liberal arts
environment - including small class sizes, personalized mentoring, and
independent research opportunities. Our faculty are equally devoted to
leading nationally-recognized research programs that involve
undergraduates at every level. Finally, through our award-winning
outreach and service initiatives, we aim to promote diversity, inclusion
and the holistic education of our students and the broader community.
For additional information about the Physics and Biophysics Department,
please visit www.sandiego.edu/cas/physics
, or contact the Department Chair,
Dr. Rae M.R. Anderson (randerson@sandiego.edu).

University of San Diego, a private Catholic institution, is committed to
fostering a diverse and inclusive community, and strongly encourages
applications from candidates who can contribute to the diversity and
excellence of the academic community.

How to Apply: Candidates should go to www.sandiego.edu/jobs
, search for this posting and apply as an

10th September 2018 : 2 postdocs – UCSB

Dear Colleagues:

I have just relocated to the Physics Department at the University of
California Santa Barbara and I have two postdoctoral openings. I am
looking for outstanding and independent young scientists with broad
background in nonequilibrium statistical physics, soft matter or
biological physics, and strong computational and analytical skills. The
specific projects for each position are:

1.Simulations and continuum theories of active and driven systems,
including bacterial suspensions, active liquid crystals and active
colloids: rheology and mechanics of active matter, pattern formation and
topological defects in active fluids and gels, models of active
particles with internal degrees of freedom and feedback.

2.Understanding how the material properties of 2D tissue layers control
morphogenetics processes leading to 3D shapes. This project is part of a
collaboration with Mark Bowick and the experimental groups of Sebastian
Streichan and Zvonimir Dogic. It will involve a combination of
simulations of mesoscopic models, such as vertex or active tension
network models, and studies of continuum models of active viscoelastic
sheets. Experience with finite element method is desirable, but not
required.

To apply for one of these positions, an interested applicant should
forward a CV and three letters of reference to _cmarchetti@ucsb.edu
_ with subject line: 2018 postdoc. Both
positions can start as early as Fall 2018 and are for one year, with the
intention of renewal for a second and a third year, subject to good
performance and mutual satisfaction.

Thank you for circulating this announcement.

3rd September 2018 : Postdoc – Computation/Single-molecule Biophysics – Brandeis U.

The labs of Jeff Gelles and Douglas Theobald at Brandeis University
(Boston, Massachusetts Metro area) have postdoctoral positions available
as part of a new interdisciplinary research project just funded (in
August 2018) by the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
The project is to develop, characterize, and implement new computational
methods using Bayesian image classification, Markov chain Monte Carlo,
and other statistics-based methods, to deduce kinetic mechanisms of
biochemical processes from multi-wavelength single-molecule fluorescence
microscopy images.

The positions require a strong background in computation, with a Ph.D.
in Biophysics, Physics, Statistics, Computer Science, Biomedical
Engineering, or a related field. Recent (or soon-to-be) graduates are
encouraged to apply. Previous experience in biophysics or biochemistry
would be helpful but is not required; the positions can be structured to
provide training (including relevant experimental work) to individuals
interested in gaining experience in those areas.

To apply, please send your curriculum vitae (including a list of your
publications) and a cover letter that includes: 1) the names of three
mentors familiar with your scientific abilities who can provide letters
of recommendation, 2) a description of your prior experience with
projects in scientific computation, and 3) a statement of your
scientific interests and future career plans.

3rd September 2018 : Postdoc – theoretical/computational biophysics – ENS Paris

Dear colleagues,

We are looking for a post-doctoral researcher to work on a biophysics
project in Paris related to repressive and DNA repair foci in cells.
The project is in collaboration between theorists at the Ecole Normale
Superieure (Thierry Mora and Aleksandra Walczak) and experimentalists
at the Curie Institute: Judith Mine Hattab and Angela Taddei. The
project requires a combination of numerical and theoretical skills and
will require analysing real data.

The project concerns understanding the nature, formation and stability
of repressive and DNA repair foci in cells. It involves building
non-equilibrium statistical mechanics models and inference methods to
analyze single cell tracking experiments. We are interested in
figuring out the organisation and stability of these foci,
specifically testing ideas about liquid phase separation droplets.
Experimental data using cutting edge microscopy (PALM, single particle
tracking) are already available. The project is based on data analysis
and theoretical analysis.

For now the position is ~1.2 years but we will help candidates apply
for additional fellowships. The position could start as early as
September 2018 but possibly later.

Interested candidates should send their CV including publication list,
the names of people who can provide letters of reference and few
(really a few - not long letters) sentences about their past
experiences and motivation for this project to tmora@lps.ens.fr,
awalczak@lpt.ens.fr, judith.mine@curie.fr, Angela.Taddei@curie.fr.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: September 15th 2018. Applications received
before the deadline will be given priority.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions.
