Subject: [soft-matter] postdoc position in Montpellier, France

From: Ludovic Berthier

Dear Colleagues,

Applications are invited to fill a postdoctoral fellowship, starting in
2021. The fellowship is for one or two years and is funded by the Simons
Collaboration "Cracking The Glass Problem”. The postdoc will be
supervised by Ludovic Berthier (Montpellier, France and Cambridge, UK).

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

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

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

The deadline for applications is April 15,  2021.

Ludovic Berthier
