19th May 2021 : Postdoc – physics of multi-cellular systems – Marseille, France

Dear colleagues,
Please consider forwarding the following announcement for a postdoc
opening in my group to potential candidates.
Thank you and best regards,
Matthias Merkel

*Postdoctoral fellow position in theoretical soft matter physics at the
Center for Theoretical Physics (CPT) and the Turing Center for Living
Systems (CENTURI) in Marseille, France*

I am inviting applications for a postdoctoral fellow position in my
group (http://centuri-livingsystems.org/m-merkel/).  My group focuses on
theoretical and computational research in bio- and soft matter physics,
closely collaborating with experimental groups.

I am looking for a strong and motivated scientist to work on the
collective organization of cells into biological tissues using a
combination of both cell-based models (e.g. 3D vertex model) and
analytical approaches (e.g. continuum descriptions).  The successful
candidate will work on theoretical questions while at the same time
closely collaborating with experimental groups (e.g. at the Institut de
Biologie du Développement de Marseille).

The two-year position is fully funded by the Alan Turing Center for
Living Systems (CENTURI, http://centuri-livingsystems.org/), a new
interdisciplinary research hub in Marseille that brings together
physicists, biologists, engineers, and mathematicians.  To apply for the
position, please send cover letter, cv, and email addresses of two
references to matthias.merkel@cpt.univ-mrs.fr.  Applications will be
considered continuously until the position is filled. Please do not
hesitate to contact me for any informal inquiry regarding this offer.
