Postdoctoral Research Assistants in Theoretical Active Matter / Biophysics

University of Oxford

Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Assistant positions in Active Matter / Theoretical Biophysics.

The posts are available for a fixed-term duration of  2 years with a possible extension subject to funding.

The PDRAs will pursue fundamental theoretical/computational research centred around the ways in which active matter physics can be used to help further our understanding of mechanobiology. The positions are funded by an ERC Advanced Grant (underwritten by UKRI as a Frontier Grant) which includes generous provision for travel and inviting visitors.

The PDRAs will be expected to carry out cutting-edge research using analytical and computational approaches. They will contribute to a highly collaborative and dynamic research environment, and will initiate inter-disciplinary research discussions with experimentalists and biologists.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or be near completion of a PhD in theoretical physics or a related field. Candidates are expected to demonstrate a capacity for independent research work and an ability to collaborate across disciplines.

The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
