Active matter / Univ. Postdam
within the framework of the DFG-funded Collaborative Research Center 1294 “Data Assimilation”, we are currently inviting applications for 12 PhD positions (4 years each; TV-L E13, part-time: 75%).
I am particularly looking for two motivated, outstanding PhD students interested in working on active matter with applications to bacterial motility. One position is placed at the interface of experiment and theory. We are seeking applicants from statistical physics, preferentially with a focus on the modeling of biological processes or, more generally, nonequilibrium transport processes. Experience in optical microscopy and handling of bacterial cultures is advantageous but not required. The second position is focused on active matter theory. We are seeking applicants from physics, preferentially with a background in statistical physics, or applied mathematics. Experience in one of the fields of Bayesian inference, parameter estimation, machine learning or Monte-Carlo simulation is required. Furthermore, knowledge on the modeling of stochastic processes is advantageous.
In both cases, the ability to communicate and closely collaborate with mathematicians is essential to benefit from and successfully integrate into the interdisciplinary environment of this CRC. Workplace is the University of Potsdam (Germany).
The application deadline is June 11.
