Position Description:    

The dynamical systems group at UT Austin seeks applications for a postdoctoral researcher to work alongside Professor William Gilpin and our team ( Our curiosity-driven research group is broadly interested in computational approaches to understanding natural systems. We are very excited to hear from researchers with diverse scientific experience; right now we are working on the following areas: + Theoretical tools for modelling and analyzing fluid flows and other complex dynamical systems, including active matter and living systems + Developing new machine learning techniques inspired by ideas from nonlinear dynamics and statistical physics + Analogue computation and learning in soft materials You will have very broad latitude and independence to pursue your research interests, and you can optionally supervise students, teach, or participate in our group’s outreach efforts. We also have a lab space within the physics department, where are always interested in creative tabletop experiments to test out our ideas. We’re located in the Center for Nonlinear Dynamics within UT’s physics department ( The group is also associated with the interdisciplinary Oden Institute for Computational Science and Engineering, and we enjoy interacting with our colleagues in other departments such as Integrative Biology and Dell Medical School. Our lab is located on the fourteenth floor of UT’s Physics-Math-Astronomy building. A strong programming background would be preferred, as well as some familiarity and interest in designing and releasing replicable open-source code. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled. This position is fully-funded, initially for one year (but renewable for up to three years). Please feel free to reach out to William directly at Please include a CV or resume, and a few sentences explaining which area of the lab’s research you are interested in (or if you want to explore a new area). Positions include a competitive salary, relocation, visa support, and UT’s full employee benefits, including retirement plans and fully-covered medical.
