16th April 2021 : Postdoc positions 3D experiments on the collective behaviour of biological systems, at the Institute for Complex Systems of the CNR in Rome, Italy.

We are looking for postdoctoral fellows interested in performing experimental
research at the interface between physics and biology. The aim of our group
is to study the collective phenomena of life through a close interplay between
 experimental data on biological groups in their natural environment and statistical
 physics methods. The candidates will conduct experimental data-taking
 campaigns in the field, on bird flocks and insect swarms. A strong emphasis
 will be put on the comparison between theory and experiments. The postdocs
 will join the COBBS Group in Rome (Collective Behaviour in Biological Systems),
 and work under the supervision of A. Cavagna and S. Melillo. The duration of the
 positions is two years, potentially extendable. The positions will be funded by the
 ERC Advanced Grant RG.BIO to Andrea Cavagna. www.cobbs.it and erc-rgbio.eu.
 Applications should be sent to stefania.melillo@cnr.it with a cv and the contact
details of senior scientists who can provide recommendation letters (only upon
our request).  Although there is no sharp deadline for these positions, earlier
applications will be given higher priority.
