10th November 2018 : Postdoc positions – Physics of active matter – University of Chile (Santiago)

We invite interested young researchers to apply for postdoc positions
available at the group “Millennium Nucleus Physics of Active Matter” at
the Physics department of the University of Chile (Santiago). The
applicants should have a strong training in physics or disciplines
related to the project (see below) with skills in theoretical, numerical
and/or experimental research. The selected candidates will participate
in an open work atmosphere of collaboration between theoreticians and
experimentalists working in different problems related to the “Physics
of Active Matter”. We are particularly interested in developing:
1-Stochastic Thermodynamics and other theoretical approaches for active
matter and non-equilibrium systems in general. 2-Experimental techniques
for the study of bacterial suspensions in microfluidic devices.
3-Simulations of bacterial suspensions, active tissues, or active
colloids. More information can be found in
http://activematter.dfi.uchile.cl/en/ or in the personal web pages of
the principal investigators: Felipe Barra
(http://www.dfi.uchile.cl/team/felipe_barra/) María Luisa Cordero
(http://www.dfi.uchile.cl/~mcordero/) Rodrigo Soto
(http://www.dfi.uchile.cl/~rsoto/) Financial support from our side is
committed for one year and will be extended yearly upon agreement
between the two parties. In consist in a monthly salary of 1.770.000
Chilean pesos (2800 USD approx). Operational expenses and expenses
associated to conferences (such as plane tickets, etc.) can be covered
from our research budget. Candidates should send a CV, research
interests, and the names and contact information of 2-3 researches that
can provide references to prof. Felipe Barra, fbarra@dfi.uchile.cl.
