The lab "Cellular Spatial Organization", Institut Jacques Monod, Paris, is looking to hire a postdoctoral fellow who will be mentored by Dr. Serge Dmitrieff. We aim at a physical understanding for how elements in the cell, such as the cytoskeleton, cell wall, etc. self-organize under mechanical constraints from their environment. The postdoc will be funded for two years with a possibility of extension.
Project : The goal is to understand biological materials as active self-organizing complex assemblies. You will develop a physical theory of intracellular dynamics, using a combination of continuous approaches (active gel theory, theory of elasticity, thermodynamics...) and numerical simulations. This will be supported by our strong interactions with experimentalists.
Lab : The team "Cellular Spatial Organization" is an interdisciplinary team that hosts both theoreticians and experimentalists, and has gained a reputation on intracellular architecture and mechanics. We develop cutting-edge methods both experimental and theoretical. It is in an ideal scientific environment for a biophysicist, being located in a biology institute with a strong focus on experimental biophysics, and neighbour to an experimental and theoretical physics institute. It is also conveniently located inside Paris at the intersection of several public transport networks.
Requirements : A PhD in physics, applied mathematics, or computational biology is strongly preferable. Publications in peer-reviewed journals are desirable.
