The Active Intelligent Matter (AIM) group at the Niels Bohr Institute invites applications for postdoctoral fellowships in an interdisciplinary research at the interface between physics, biology, and fluid mechanics. Active matter comprises a wide range of living systems including cells, bacteria, and subcellular filaments, as well as artificial and synthetic materials that are continuously driven far from equilibrium by their constituent elements. Funded by the Novo Nordisk Foundation, this research program will use theoretical and computational modeling, along with in-house experiments to study fundamental problems in active matter with potential applications in the life sciences. Projects range across topics including understanding of the cellular decision-making process, designing active materials capable of self-organization and self-healing, topology and fluid mechanics of self-pumping fluids, and automatic detection of mechanical forces generated by cells using advanced machine-learning techniques combined with soft matter physics. A number of projects include close collaborations with theorists and experimental biophysicists in US, UK, Japan, and Europe. The positions can be funded for up to three years and candidates with interest in both theoretical and computational physics, as well as experimental work are welcome. Postdoctoral Fellows receive a competitive salary (including pension) and funds for travel and computing. Generous parental leave, state-subsidised childcare, vacation, and full medical care are provided to employees in Denmark. A favorable tax scheme is generally granted to international researchers.

The University of Copenhagen wishes to reflect the diversity of society and welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background. The primary criterion for the evaluation of candidates is the excellence of their research.

To guarantee full consideration applications should be received before November 15, 2019. Later applications will be considered until the position is filled.
