A postdoctoral position in the area of membrane biophysics is available
in my research group at Ben Gurion University, Israel.

Our group applies analytical and computational methods of statistical
mechanics to understand the physical principles behind the functioning
of complex biological and biomedical systems. We are especially
interested in developing coarse-grained physical models for studying
complex biological phenomena on macroscopic (cellular) scales.

Possible research projects include but are not limited to:

* Modeling and simulations of lipid domains
* Developing coarse-grained models of polymer-coated lipids
* Self-assembly of drug- and gene-delivery complexes
* Studies of membrane adhesion processes

I am looking for excellent candidates with background in the areas of
statistical mechanics, biophysics, or applied mathematics. Candidates
should have experience in computer programing. Experience with the
LAMMPS package for molecular simulations is an advantage.

For further inquiries, please contact Oded Farago: ofarago@bgu.ac.il
