LPTMS postdoc proposal: « Cracking the glass problem » – the physics of amorphous solids and glasses

A Post-doctoral position is open at LPTMS Orsay on the physics of amorphous solids and glasses within the context of the Simons collaboration "Cracking the glass problem". The post-docs will work in collaboration with Silvio Franz and other researchers in the Paris area and beyond.

1. Statistical mechanics of disordered systems: glasses, spin glasses, elastic disordered systems, elastoplastic models, etc.
2. Applications of statistical physics to other disciplines (computer science, inference and statistics, biology)
A detailed description of the collaboration can be found on the site https://scglass.uchicago.edu/

Funding is available for at least two years of employment. The work is to be conducted at LPTMS, a joint laboratory of CNRS and Université Paris-Saclay with a markedly international atmosphere. Located in Orsay, it is about 30 minutes away from central Paris via a frequent, direct commuter train.
The position can start at flexible dates but preferably in Autumn 2020.

Applications should be sent to Mrs. Le Vaou  (claudine.le-vaou@lptms.u-psud.fr) and Silvio Franz (Silvio.franz@lptms.u-psud.fr) and must transit via the CNRS portal (https://emploi.cnrs.fr/Offres/CDD/UMR8626-CLALEV-004/Default.aspx). They will comprise a CV, a publication list and two recommendation letters.

For more information, please contact Silvio Franz (Silvio.franz@lptms.u-psud.fr).
