Dear Colleagues,

I am excited to announce an opening for a postdoc in
theoretical/computational soft matter in the Goodrich Group at IST
Austria . The successful candidate will use
and develop state-of-the art numerical approaches, which have strong
ties to machine learning techniques, to study complex self-assembly in
disordered and bio-inspired systems. A strong background in
computational soft matter physics is recommended, and experience in the
fields of self-assembly or disordered materials is a plus. The duration
of the project will be two years, with the possibility of further extension.

IST is an interdisciplinary research institute located just outside
Vienna.  Though only 11 years old, we alreadysit at #3 worldwide in
Nature’s normalized ranking for research output

postdocs competitive salaries and benefits, as well as the possibility
for prestigious internal fellowships that can help jumpstart their
careers.  Beyond this, working at IST also affords postdocs the
opportunity to live in what is consistently ranked as the 'most liveable
city in the world.'
