Openings available to conduct research on unicellular swimmers within
the ERC Advanced Grant MicroMotility
https://people.sissa.it/~desimone/iWeb/ERC/Welcome.html
in Italy in Trieste (SISSA) and Livorno (Center for Sea Technologies and
Marine Robotics of the Scuola Superiore Sant’Anna, Pisa).
Recent examples of our work on these topics are:

https://www.pnas.org/content/114/50/13085.abstract

We are particularly keen on candidates interested in helping us with
optical microscopy work on unicellular swimmers.

We are also keen on candidates interested in the theory and numerical
simulation of the mechanics of unicellular swimmer and of shape morphing.
