*/3 years PhD position - Team Turlier "Multiscale Physics of
Morphogenesis”/*
*/Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology, Collège de France,
Paris./*

The quantitative understanding of early mammalian development is
essential to the progress of reproductive medicine. Yet, the physical
and mechanical principles governing the morphogenesis of mammalian
embryos remain largely unknown. Early mouse embryos self-organize by a
succession of cell divisions, deformations and rearrangements, leading
ultimately to a stereotypical 3-dimensional structure called the
blastocyst. Encapsulating a large fluid cavity, the blastocyst is
composed of two major cell lineages, the inner-cell mass and the
trophectoderm, which are segregated in inside & outside layers. The aim
of this thesis is to investigate the self-organization principles of
early mouse embryos from a theoretical perspective, by associating
precise description of cell mechanics with simple models of cellular
signaling and gene regulation. The work will combine analytical modeling
and computational science to develop precise numerical simulations of
embryo morphogenesis. Funded by the Bettencourt-Schueller Foundation for
3 years, it will be performed in tight collaboration with the
experimental group of J-L. Maître at Institut Curie, expert in mouse
embryology.

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Emergence of fibers in frustrated self-assembly

Responsable: Martin Lenz 01 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.

Despite several examples of this in our numerical simulations (see illustration), we have yet to
better understand the underlying physics. Is fiber formation based on a well-defined phase transition? Is
this transition fundamentally out of equilibrium as some of our results suggest? To what extent can it be
mapped onto the standard geometrical understanding of frustration as the embedding of a manifold into
a space with an incompatible metric? We will tackle these questions using two minimal models of
frustration where we hope to combine analytical and numerical insights. One of these is akin to
historical descriptions of Josephson junctions, where lattice-based Heisenberg spins want to realize a
certain fixed mismatch in their alignments between neighboring sites.

This project offers opportunities for collaborations with the theoretical group of Gregory Grason at
U. Mass. Amherst (USA), as well as with several groups that are currently initiating experiments on
frustration-driven fiber formation.

Informal inquiries welcome.

Dear colleagues,

Please forward this message to potential candidates, sorry for multiple emails.

Thank you in advance,
Best wishes,
Francesco Zamponi and Martin Weigt

=======

We are seeking candidates for a postdoctoral research position at the
interface between statistical physics and computational biology. The
postdoc will work in collaboration with Martin Weigt (UPMC) and
Francesco Zamponi (ENS Paris), on statistical-physics inspired
data-driven modelling approaches to the evolution and coevolution of
proteins.

The scientific project concerns in particular the study of the impact
of phylogenetic effects on the Direct Coupling Analysis (DCA), both in
stylized toy models and in real protein sequence alignment data. We
will use methods from statistical physics and statistical inference.
Most of the work will likely be computational, although some analytic
calculations might also be performed.

A background in statistical or biological physics is required. The
candidate should have a general interest in working with biological
data, but no prior background in biology is needed.

Applications are welcome at any time, until the position is filled.
Please send an email to francesco.zamponi@lpt.ens.fr and
martin.weigt@upmc.fr, containing your CV and, if you wish, other
application material such as research statement, etc. Please use the

17th September 2017 : Postdoc fellowships in theoretical biophysics – Princeton

Dear colleagues,

We are in the midst of our annual search for postdoctoral fellows
interested in working at the interface of theoretical physics and
biology, broadly defined.

We can offer our young collaborators a unique environment, with a
critical mass of like minded theorists and a large community of friendly
experimental groups with whom we interact closely.  We take “biophysics”
in its most expansive sense, working across scales ranging from the
molecular to the ecological, with many stops in between.

Our community has been formalized and expanded by the establishment of
the Center for the Physics of Biological Function, jointly between
Princeton and The Graduate Center of the City University of New York.
 We are just getting started, but some information can be found at
https://biophysics.princeton.edu, which will be updated as the program
develops.

Over the years we have worked with postdoctoral fellows who have done
PhD theses on biophysics problems, as well as with fellows whose theses
were in more traditional areas of theoretical physics.  We have been
very fortunate in attracting wonderful young colleagues, all of whom
have gone on to independent research and faculty positions around the world.

*We ask your help in bringing this opportunity to the attention of young
people in your community.*  Note that we are searching in parallel for
experimentalists, and that a further search for theorists to be based at
CUNY will be announced shortly - see the center web site for details.
 Applications can be made through the web site

https://puwebp.princeton.edu/AcadHire/apply/application.xhtml?listingId=3361

We are mindful that PhD students in Europe are not as synchronized with
the academic year as are their US counterparts; we sense that we
sometimes miss out on excellent candidates as a result, and so are
especially appreciative of your help. We have set a soft deadline of 15
October, and emphasize that the application process is not complicated
(!).  If you think there are good candidates who need more personal
encouragement to apply, please don’t hesitate to let us know.

With many thanks, and best wishes

Bill

Le profil recherché est celui d'une candidature avec une excellente formation en physique théorique, capable d'interagir avec une ou plusieurs des équipes du LPTMS. Une bonne connaissance de la physique numérique sera un atout.

Contexte

Ce recrutement s'insère au sein du Centre de Physique Matière et Rayonnement (CPMR) de la future Université Paris-Saclay (regroupement de 5 laboratoires LPS-LAC-FAST-ISMO-LPTMS), et un intérêt pour les applications de la théorie aux problèmes expérimentaux sera apprécié. Le déménagement du LPTMS en novembre 2018, au coeur même du CPMR, est de ce point de vue un atout important.

Attention, les candidats doivent être qualifiés par le CNU pour pouvoir candidater. La date limite pour initier les démarches de qualification est le 24 octobre 2017, consulter

https://www.galaxie.enseignementsup-recherche.gouv.fr/ensup/cand_qualification_droit_commun.htm

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

Statistical Physics and Modelling : classical and quantum aspects

An assistant professor position will presumably be open in 2018, with competition taking place during the spring.

Teaching

The candidate will teach at all University levels. He/She will take part in the undergraduate physics program, and possibly in other programs such as mathematics, informatics, or biology and chemistry. More specifically, the settlement of Ens Paris-Saclay on campus and the rise of mixed mathematics-physics curricula go with enhanced needs of physics teaching. In addition, the selected person will have the opportunity to get involved into the newly reorganized Physics of Complex Systems Masters. A significant experience in teaching during doctoral and/or post-doctoral studies will be appreciated.

Research activities

LPTMS aims at developing its activities, from applications of statistical physics in condensed matter physics in a broad sense, to new directions that are currently being investigated at the interface with mathematics, chemistry, information theory or biology. The candidate is expected to have a strong background in theoretical physics, and to be able to interact with one or several teams at LPTMS. A good knowledge of computational physics will be an advantage. The position will integrate the future Centre de Physique Matière et Rayonnement (CPMR) of the Paris-Saclay University, a joint program of 5 laboratories LPS-LAC-FAST-ISMO-LPTMS. The relocation of LPTMS within the premises of CPMR in November 2018 is an important perspective and an interest in experimental questions will thus be appreciated.

Candidates are expected to have a good command of French language. Besides, they should be beforehand qualified by the CNU. The deadline to initiate the qualification procedure is Oct 24 2017, see

10th August 2017 : Institut Curie-NCBS Joint Postdoctoc

*_Institut Curie-NCBS _**_Joint _**_Postdoctoral Fellowship Program_*

*About Us*

This is a joint project between theorists (Prof. Madan Rao
and Prof. Pierre Sens
)
and experimentalists (Prof. Patricia Bassereau

and Dr. Shashi Thutupalli ) at two
institutes (National Centre for Biological Sciences
, Bangalore, India and the Institut Curie
, Paris, France) as part of a joint
postdoctoral fellowship program. The aim is to understand the
organization and emergence of structure and function of the Golgi
apparatus, a complex membrane bound organelle within cells.

*The position*
**
We are seeking highly motivated, outstanding candidates for 2
postdoctoral positions to investigate the biophysics of the Golgi
apparatus in cells, both theoretically and experimentally.

We propose to use the principles of soft condensed matter and
non-equilibrium physics to understand the organization and emergence of
structure and function of the Golgi apparatus. We view this as a process
of self-emergent structure and function but also as a complex
information processing problem. The Golgi apparatus is comprised of a
stack of lipid bilayer compartments (cisternae), each with a unique
chemical identity and serves as a protein processing factory as proteins
and other macromolecules progress in a stepwise manner through the
stacks. The emergence of the form and function of such a biochemical
factory from simple soft matter components such as lipids and proteins
has remained a mystery for a long time. Resolving this mystery has
fundamental bearing not only for understanding trafficking within cells
but also for cellular self-organization in general. The sequential
chemical processing within the Golgi apparatus can be viewed as driven
nonequilibrium chemical reactions. We aim to build in vitro model lipid
membrane systems incorporating non-equilibrium processes, such as
membrane fusion, sorting and spontaneous scission using a combination of
microfluidics and soft matter techniques. Using these basic ingredients,
we will study the de novo emergence of structures resembling the Golgi.
Of particular emphasis will be the quantitative control of the
transport, fusion, fission and segregation of the structures
commensurate with in vitro studies. These experiments and corresponding
in vitro measurements will be reconciled with theory.

*Your profile*
**
An extensive background in soft matter physics or related subjects.

(i) For the experimentalists, we are looking for expertise in artificial
membrane systems, microfluidics, microscopy, optical manipulation and
related physical techniques. Persons with a theoretical background with
a strong interest in building experiments are also encouraged to apply.

(ii) For theorists, background in soft condensed matter, nonequilibrium
statistical mechanics and membrane biophysics will be highly relevant.

*Our offer*
**
The total duration of the fellowship is for a maximum duration of 4
years. This fellowship is a jointly appointment Postdoctoral Fellow
between the NCBS, India and the Institut Curie, France. The time of the
fellowship is to be divided between the partnering institutions. Right
from the start, the candidates will be encouraged and even expected to
develop a great degree of independence — from drafting the initial
details of the project within the broad framework outlined to proposing
interesting directions going forward.

*Your application*
**
Please send your application (CV, a list of publications and two
reference letters) by email to shashi@ncbs.res.in
, patricia.bassereau@curie.fr
, pierre.sens@curie.fr
, madan@ncbs.res.in
before 10th September 2017

12th July 2017 : PhD openings in computational physics at the University of Vienna

Dear colleague!

We would like to draw your attention to two new PhD openings in
computational physics at the University of Vienna:

-*Open position with Prof. Christoph Dellago
*

/Non-equilibrium Fluctuations of Vacuum Laser Trapped Nanoparticles
/The objective of this project is to investigate, using computer
simulations and theory, the dynamics of non-equilibrium systems. The
specific example to be studied is a laser trapped nanoparticle, which is
investigated experimentally by our project partners at the ETH Zurich.
The levitated nanoparticle will be used to investigate non-equilibrium
fluctuations, which will be analysed in the framework of stochastic
thermodynamics. Specifically, we will explore transitions between
stationary non-equilibrium states, fluctuations in steady-states that
violate the principle of detailed balance, the concept of conditional
reversibility, and the coupling between internal and center-of-mass
temperatures. The student to be involved in this project is expected to
have knowledge of advanced statistical mechanics and be proficient in
computer programming.

-*Open position with Prof. Christos Likos
*
/Self-assembly of quasi-two dimensional soft colloids
/We are looking for a Ph.D. student to work on our current activity of
investigations of soft, patchy colloids under geometrical confinement.
Previous investigations in the group have established that star-shaped
block-copolymers in the bulk can act as self-organized patchy particles,
whose patchiness can be tuned by molecular architecture and temperature,
leading to the emergence of a variety of self-assembled structures. The
current project will extend these investigations at the border between
two and three dimensions, where the block copolymer stars have been
found to build a variety of soft polygons, including squares, triangles
and pentagons, which make them excellent candidates for the formation of
two-dimensional quasicrystals. The focus will be on developing
coarse-grained models for the investigation of the phase behaviour in
two dimensions. The successful candidate should have a solid background
in Statistical Physics; experience with computer simulations and/or
polymer or colloidal physics is a plus.

The application process runs through the Vienna Doctoral School in
Physics (VDS-P)

and registration is possible until *July 30*.
The poster for the open call can be found here
,
further information on the admission process can be found here.

We would be very grateful if you could forward this information and the
attachment to qualified students who might be interested in performing
their doctoral work at the University of Vienna.

Feel free to approach us in case you have any questions or comments.

With many thanks in advance.

Nanophotonics (classical and quantum optics on the nanoscale),
Nanophotovoltaics (PV materials and light management), and Designer
Matter/, / which spans metamaterials, mechanics and soft matter. AMOLF
is a dynamic environment in which 120 scientist work in 17 groups that
are based in different disciplines, yet strongly collaborate to jointly
unravel how complex functionality can be programmed into, or emerges
from, complex matter. The non-hierarchical division in small groups,
mean that AMOLF presents a collaborative and supportive environment for
starting a new group, with many opportunities for joint training and
joint project initiatives. AMOLF has a state-of-the-art infrastructure
for nanofabrication, ultrafast spectroscopy, microscopy, and molecular
biophysics. AMOLF offers tenure trackers full independence as PI to
build a group, with a supportive and transparent system of mentoring and
monitoring towards a permanent staff position. Thus, AMOLF is an
excellent environment for researchers to start a tenure-track.

*About the WISE program:* AMOLF is keen to attract applicants in any of
its research themes, and will provide a generous start up package in
terms of investment and personnel to kickstart the new research line.
Successful candidates will be able to start a group as independent
principal investigator, with a clear path to a permanent position after
5 years. As the tenure track fellowship is facilitated by the NWO WISE
program, applications for the position need to be made through the NWO
“Women in Science Excel” program website. This process works via an
open, competitive call for applications administered by the dutch
science foundation NWO, with selected candidates invited to visit the
institute for interview. Further information about the program, the
application requirements and deadline are listed on
http://www.nwo.nl/en/research-and-results/programmes/women+in+science+excel.
AMOLF will supply a startup package well beyond the WISE guidelines.

14th June 2017 : Postdoc in theoretical statistical biophysics in Paris

Dear colleagues,

I am looking for post-doctoral researchers to work on developing new
statistical mechanics methods for immune system analysis, specifically
immune repertoires at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris. The project
will involve analytically deriving new probabilistic inference methods
and then implementing them (working closely with real datasets). The
ideal candidate should be motivated, curious, analytically and
numerically competent. The project is a collaboration between Aleksandra
Walczak and Thierry Mora.

The position is open from November 1st on, for a duration of up to three
years. Please try and indicate your interest before August 1st 2017.

Interested candidates should contact me (awalczak@lpt.ens.fr) with a CV,
including a list of publications, short paragraph about what they have
worked on so far and why they are interested in this project and three
names of people who I can contact for references.

I would be grateful if you could help me diffuse this message.

12th June 2017 : Post doc position at the Francis Crick Institute

Dear colleagues,

Dr Guillaume Salbreux at the Francis Crick Institute is recruiting for a
post-doc position. Please find the details below together with a link to
the position.

Dr Salbreux laboratory focuses on theoretical physics of biology, with
an emphasis on morphogenetic processes in cells and tissues. Dr Salbreux
is seeking a talented and motivated postdoc to develop a physical model
of cellular and tissue shape changes and the signalling networks
regulating contractility. The goal of the project is to determine 1) how
spatiotemporal recruitment of master regulators regulates changes in
cell mechanics that lead to mitotic morphogenesis, 2) how localized
activation of contractility in cells in a tissue drive tissue
deformations. The research will be carried out in close collaboration
with the laboratory of Pr. Guillaume Charras at UCL. Experiments
performed in the Charras lab will use optogenetics to control cell
signalling, in order to activate contractility at the subcellular cell
level during mitosis and at cellular level in a suspended monolayer. The
project will involve data analysis of experimental results and
comparison between experiments and a physical description of the
dynamics of cell and tissue shape. In addition, the postdoc will
contribute to the development of theories of flows of active matter in
3D and on surfaces, taking into account the dynamics of signalling
molecules that are relevant to biological processes.

The Max Planck Research Group on Biological Physics and Morphogenesis is
seeking to fill a

*PhD position (m/f)***

*in Theoretical Biological Physics*.

We are looking for excellent, highly motivated early-career researchers
to join our research team.

How does form and pattern arise in a living organism? Plants are the
ideal model system to investigate the interplay of hormones and
mechanical forces during growth. In plants a single hormone called auxin
forms a variety of different patterns ranging from spots, to streams to
fountain-like structures. As part of the newly established research unit
2581 on “Morphodynamics of Plants” we want to investigate how auxin and
cell mechanics together give rise to the highly dynamic patterns in
roots. To tackle this project you will have access to the tissue
simulation developed in our group and to experimental data of growing
roots from our collaborators.

The PhD position is limited to three years. Starting date is *September
1, 2017*.

The PhD candidate should have a Master’s degree (or comparable) in
physics, applied mathematics, or in a related field. The ideal candidate
should have a background in quantitative biology, soft matter or
statistical physics. Programming skills are highly desired.

In close collaboration with the Georg August University, a structured
PhD program is offered in the graduate program of the Physics
Department, or in the graduate program on the Physics of Biological and
Complex Systems.

The PhD position is limited to three years. The salary and working hours
are in accordance with the funding guidelines of the Max Planck Society
for junior scientists, salary is 2/3 of E13 TVöD-Bund.

The Max-Planck society is committed to increasing the number of
individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages
applications from such qualified individuals. The Max Planck Society
seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are
underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.

27th March 2017 : PhD in computational and experimental biophysics – UCL

Dear All,

We are inviting applications for *one EPSRC funded PhD studentship* in
the area of *Experimental and Computational Biophysics* starting October
2017 at University College London. The project will be carried out
jointly in the Institute of Structural Molecular Biology
, London Centre for Nanotechnology
, and theDepartment of Physics & Astronomy
at UCL. Deadline for applications is *May 01
2017*.**

*_Project Title_: Competitive interactions in heterogeneous cancer cell
populations: a multimodal imaging, machine learning and computational
modelling approach*
*
*
*_Project Description:_*
*_
_*
Most adult human cancers originate from transformation of a single cell
within an epithelial cell sheet. Then, several rounds of mutation and
selection are believed to give rise to tumour progenitors. At the
molecular level, the sequence of events leading to cancer progression is
becoming better characterised. Recent work suggests that transformed
cells compete with their less transformed neighbours, although this is
poorly understood. The outcome of such competition likely depends on
environmental conditions. This project will use long-term microscopy,
state-of-the-art image analysis and computational models to characterise
competition in cancer.

In this project, we propose to examine how microenvironmental selection
forces affect the outcome of competition between different cell
lineages. In the simplest configuration, we will consider a competition
between two cell types at different stages of cancer progression. We
will examine the outcome of this competition by analysing cell
proliferation in co-cultures under normal and stressful conditions. We
propose to examine how environmental conditions such as nutrient
depletion, hypoxia, or exposure to anti-cancer drugs affect competition
between cell types. Experiments will be run on a custom built microscope
that enables continuous imaging over periods of several days. Cells are
seeded either on circular micro-patterns or within microfluidic devices.
Images are analysed using a custom-written software pipeline that can
track individual cells, recognise cell cycle stage, and generate lineage
trees (https://youtu.be/dsjUnRwu33k).

We will interpret our experimental results using game theory to
understand competition between cell types under different stress
conditions. Here, opposing cell types adopt strategies (for example
selfish or regulated growth) intended to maximise their fitness within
the environment. Game theoretic constructs such as the Prisoner’s
Dilemma, have been used to make theoretical predictions about growth
rates in mixed cell populations. Here, we seek to provide direct
experimental measurements of cell proliferation under selection
pressure, to compare with theoretical predictions, and provide a clearer
picture of the earliest events in tumourogenesis.

The project will focus on the following objectives:
1)Develop a multimodal imaging assay to continuously image co-cultures
of cells
2)Train and optimise machine-learning algorithms to detect and label cells
3)Characterise the interactions between non-transformed cells and cells
with different mutations.
4)Characterise how anti-cancer drugs modulate the outcome of competition
5)Integrate experimental data into the computational modelling framework

This is a collaborative project between:

- *Dr Alan R Lowe* (London Centre for Nanotechnology and ISMB,
http://lowe.cs.ucl.ac.uk/)
-*Prof. Guillaume Charras* (LCN,

15th March 2017 : PhD position in Biological Physics | TU Dresden (deadline 18.04.)

A PhD position is available in the "Biological Algorithms Group" of
cfaed (TU Dresden, Germany) on theory of synchronization in cilia
carpets, starting July 1st, 2017.

Please forward this announcement to potentially interested candidates.
Informal inquiries should be send to benjamin.m.friedrich@tu-dresden.de
.

Thank you
Benjamin Friedrich
Biological Algorithms Group, cfaed, TU Dresden

*PhD position*
We are hiring a PhD student for an innovative project on collective
synchronization in cilia carpets, with anticipated funding from the DFG
priority program “Microswimmers” (SPP 1726).

*The project*
Inside our airways, thousands of hair-like cilia beat with a common
rhythm. Yet, there is no master pace maker and synchronization occurs
purely by local coupling, providing a striking example of self-organized
dynamics. You will develop a theory of robust synchronization in cilia
carpets, in order to unveil physical mechanisms of collective
synchronization. You will have access to state-of-the art hydrodynamic
simulation tools, established in our group, and a novel framework of
Lagrangian mechanics for active, elastic structures, such as beating
cilia. More information: Klindt et al. Phys. Rev. Lett. (2016).

*TU Dresden*
Dresden unites excellence in information and life sciences. We enjoy the
close proximity of collaboration partners at the Max Planck Institute of
Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, the Biotechnology Center, and the
new Center for Systems Biology Dresden, which allows rapid iteration
loops between theory and experiment.

*Application Procedure*
Your application (in English only) should include: a motivation letter,
your CV with publication list, the names and contact details of two
references, copy of degree certificate, and transcript of grades (i.e.
the official list of coursework including your grades). Please include
also a link to your Master’s thesis. Complete applications should be
submitted preferably by e-mail as a single PDF-document quoting the
reference number PhD-1703 in the subject header to
recruiting.cfaed@tu-dresden.de
(Please note: We are currently not able to receive electronically signed
and encrypted data) or alternatively by post to: TU Dresden, cfaed, Frau
Dr. P. Grünberg, 01062 Dresden, Germany. The closing date for
applications is 18.04.2017 (stamped arrival date of the university
central mail service applies). Please submit copies only, as your
application will not be returned to you. Expenses incurred in attending
interviews cannot be reimbursed.

Subject: Re: offres de postdoc au CEA

Bonjour,

Merci de trouver ci-joint deux offres de postdoc au CEA.

La premiere offre concerne la mise en place de simulations gros grains de type
"Dissipative Particle Dynamics" (DPD) appliquees aux polymeres dans le code
ExaStamp qui fonctionne sur le centre de calcul du CEA. Un accent particulier
est mis sur la prise en compte de l'anisotropie des gros grains pour reproduire
les proprietes structurales et dynamiques du materiau.

La deuxieme offre a pour objectif la mise en place dans le code ExaStamp de
simulations a des longueurs et temps caracteristiques de l'ordre de ceux
associes a la DPD et plus grands (Slip Link). Pour ce postdoc un accent
particulier est mis sur l'obtention d'un code performant et hautement
parallelise (vectorisation, multithreading).

Les deux postdoc sont finances par le Plan d'Investissement d'Avenir SMICE
(Simulation de Materiaux pour L'Industrie par le Calcul Exaflop) pour une duree
d'un an.

Pourriez-vous faire circuler ces deux offres dans vos laboratoires et les
transmettre a des candidats potentiels ?

Les candidat(e)s interesse(e)s par la premiere offre peuvent contacter Laurent
Soulard (laurent.soulard@cea.fr) et Claire Lemarchand

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

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

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

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

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


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

Dear Colleague,

Hope everything is well with you.

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

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

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

Thank you,

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

Predicting genomic effects on structural colour

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

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

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

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

PEELING ON PATTERNED SURFACES (POPS)

2 YEAR POSTDOCTORAL POSITION (Application deadline 20 November 2016)

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

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

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

LPTMS PhD Proposal: Entanglement and tensor representation of quantum states

Responsable:Olivier GIRAUD 0169153175

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

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

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

these systems are either inherently complex or driven out of equilibrium
by extreme conditions. In particular, we are interested in a range of
fundamental and technical problems involving *slow phenomena and rare
events*, such as the viscous flow of supercooled liquids, nucleation and
crystal growth, the folding of polypeptide chains into structured
proteins, the self-assembly of micro-units into functional objects,
materials aging and degradation, and some mathematical optimizations.

We have a postdoc opening to work on the following projects*.
*Outstanding postdoc candidates will be considered for the Beckman

1. /Data-enabled machine learning studies of the extreme phase behavior
of liquids and liquid-like matter, unconventional phase transitions
and critical phenomena, kinetic theory of liquids./
2. /Rare-event sampling algorithms applied to understand long timescale
phenomena./
3. /Rigidity control of liquids and granular materials, soft machines
and soft robotics./

The experiments are usually performed at the neutron and synchrotron
user facilities at national laboratories around the world. Solid
background in physics, mathematics, and programming are
essential.Physics, Chemistry, and EECS majors are preferred, but other
majors are also welcome.

and myself (computational soft matter/biophysics) are looking for a
candidate who would be working on modelling mechanics of epithelial cell
sheets. The project will primarily focus on modelling, however, the
candidate would have opportunity to closely work with the experimental
group and gain experience in advanced imaging and image analysis
techniques. We are, therefore, looking for someone with the background
in physics or a closely related field, who is interested in being a part
of an interdisciplinary research team.

Details about the project and how to apply can be found at:
http://www.lifesci.dundee.ac.uk/phdprog/phd-studentships/phd-projects/4-year-mrc-phd-programme-modelling-mechanics-epithelial-cell

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello,

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

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

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

Dear Colleague,

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

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

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

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

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

30th June 2016 : Postdoc in theoretical biophysics

The speed of thought - Mechanics of neurotransmission

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

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

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

correspond au calcul de la morphologie de corps de poisson optimisée pour minimiser la puissance fournie par les muscles pour un déplacement à vitesse constante. 
Les muscles seront modélisés avec de multiples électroaimants pilotés par ordinateur. Le champ de vitesse généré par le nageur sera mesuré et analysé avec un système PIV, basé sur une nappe laser et une caméra
rapide.

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

PhD postion Modelling metastasis of breast cancer cells

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

Application deadline: 6th April
Interviews to be held on 13th April
Please apply online

topic proposal please just put the project title and my name as supervisor.

PhD postion Modelling force generation in endocytosis

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

10th March 2016 : Postdoctoral position in theoretical descriptions of living and nonliving matter at Syracuse University

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

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

The position will begin at a flexible date, preferably in the
late spring of 2016, and has a duration of one year, with the
possibility of renewal for a second year. For consideration, applicants
must complete an online application at www.sujobopps.com
(job #072209) and attach a
cover letter, CV, and a brief description of their research interests.
They also need to arrange to have three letters of reference submitted
to the website. For inquiries, please contact Prof. J. M. Schwarz at
jschwarz@physics.syr.edu. Review of applications will begin immediately
and continue until the position is filled. Syracuse University is an
equal opportunity employer committed to excellence through diversity.

across biological scales. While we push the boundaries of theory in
biology, we are also deeply connected to the broader experimental
environment of NCBS and its state-of-the-art technical infrastructure.
This includes 30 faculty working on basic and applied areas of research
ranging from from molecules and cells, to organisms and brains, all the
way to populations and ecosystems. We also maintain strong ties with
computer science, through our collaborators at the Indian Institute of
Science and the Chennai Mathematical Institute. We run a vibrant Simons
Visitors program and a Simons Colloquium series focussing on theory in
biology.

Simons-NCBS Fellows are expected to develop an independent program of
research, and are free to collaborate with the members of the Simons
Centre as well as with the faculty of NCBS. This structure of
mentorship, collaboration, and strong research support via a Research
Stipend, makes the Simons-NCBS Fellows program an ideal starting point
to launch an independent career in interdisciplinary biology.

How to apply: Positions are open internationally. Applicants can apply
all through the year by sending their CV, a one page summary of research
accomplishments, and at least two letters of recommendation to
simonspostdoc at ncbs.res.in . In addition, the
candidate must submit a detailed 2-4 page proposal of research which may
be developed in consultation with a member of the Simons Centre.

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

Dear colleagues,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Please forward this ad to all interested candidates.

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

Dear colleagues,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Thank you,

Rastko

13th January 2016 : Postdoc positions with Yair Shokef in Tel-Aviv University

Dear colleagues,

I am recruiting people for my group in Tel-Aviv University and would be
grateful if you could distribute the following notice to potential
candidates that may consider doing a postdoc with me:

The research group headed by Yair Shokef in Tel-Aviv University
(http://shokef.tau.ac.il) is searching for talented and motivated
postdoctoral fellows.

Current research in the group covers two main directions in the
non-equilibrium statistical mechanics of soft matter systems: 1) Stuck
Matter: kinetically- and geometrically-constrained lattice models for
studying geometric frustration, jamming, and slow dynamics in granular
matter, colloids, foam and glass-forming liquids, and 2) Live Matter:
nonlinear elasticity in cell mechanics and dynamical models for active
fluctuations in biological systems.Â

Postdocs joining the group will be expected to perform analytical or
numerical work along one of these directions. In addition, postdocs
will have the opportunity to participate in our close collaboration with
several theory and experiment groups, and to interact with the growing
bio-soft community in Tel-Aviv University (http://www3.tau.ac.il/biosoft).

Applicants should have completed a PhD in Physics, Chemical Physics,
Applied Mathematics, or Engineering, and have strong interest in
non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, dynamical systems, soft matter,
or biophysics.  Potential candidates are asked to send a research
statement, their CV, and names and contact information of three
references to shokef@tau.ac.il .

Prestigious fellowships are available through The Sackler Center for
Computational Molecular and Materials Science, where for primary
consideration, applicants are encouraged to apply before February 1st,

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

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

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

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

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

* *

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

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

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

7th December 2015 : PhD position in Sheffield biological physics

Hi
I'm looking for a good theory PhD student. Please bring this PhD
position to the attention of any suitable students you know.
Thanks
Rhoda

PhD position

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

*/Modelling metastasis of breast cancer cells/*

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