LPTMS Postdoc: “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 with in the context of the Simons collaboration "Cracking the glass problem", information available at https://scglass.uchicago.edu/. The post-docs will work in collaboration with Silvio Franz and other researchers in the Paris area and beyond.

• Topics:
1. Statistical mechanics of disordered systems: glasses, spin glasses, elastic disordered systems, elasto-plastic models, etc.
2. Applications of statistical physics to other disciplines (computer science, inference and statistics, biology)
3. Soft matter (jamming, granular materials, colloids, etc.)

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-Sud 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 2017.
