*4 PDRA positions at Oxford / Dundee / UCL, UK*

TOPIC: Early-stage embryo as an active self-tuning soft material
(relevant to experimentalists and theorists interested in biophysics or
active matter)

DETAILS: We seek to hire four postdoctoral research associates (PDRAs)
to work on an interdisciplinary collaborative project between the
University of Dundee, the University of Oxford, and UCL. The aim of the
project is to understand the interplay between tissue-scale mechanical
forces, cell differentiation, and cell behaviours during gastrulation.

Interested applicants are invited to contact the relevant PIs regarding
each of the positions below.

PDRA 1 will be based at the University of Dundee in the group of Prof
Weijer. They will image cell and tissue dynamics during gastrulation in
chick embryos using light sheet microscopy, as well as perform the
large-scale data analysis. Informal enquiries should be sent to: Prof
Cornelis J. Weijer (c.j.weijer@dundee.ac.uk)

PDRA 2 will be based at the University of Oxford in the group of Prof
Yeomans. They will develop continuum modelling and theoretical
approaches for chick gastrulation and advance our understanding of the
relevance of active matter physics in biological contexts.  Informal
enquiries should be sent to: Prof Julia Yeomans
(julia.yeomans@physics.ox.ac.uk) More details at

Closing date Feb 8th

PDRA 3 will be based at the University of Dundee in the group of Dr
Sknepnek. They will work on computational models to bridge between cell
and tissue scales. Informal enquiries should be sent to: Dr Rastko
Sknepnek (r.sknepnek@dundee.ac.uk)

PDRA 4 will be based at the UCL in the group of Prof Charras. They will
characterise mechanics and feedback in developing tissues. Informal
enquiries should be sent to Prof Guillaume Charras (g.charras@ucl.ac.uk)

*Postdoctoral fellowship, soft matter, biophysics, at Niels Bohr
Institute, Denmark*

We invite applications for a postdoctoral fellowship. The research
activity includes applications and the development of multiscale
computer simulations to explore shape remodeling of biological
membranes. The candidate should have a background in physics, chemistry,
or related fields, with a good knowledge of molecular dynamics
simulations and some experience with computer programming.
