Postdoctoral Position: Modeling in Cell Biophysics

A postdoctoral position is available in the Vavylonis group in the Department of Physics at Lehigh University (http://athena.physics.lehigh.edu). Our group is focusing on the biophysical mechanisms of cell motion, polarization, and division. We develop coarse-grained models of cell organization that span molecular to cellular scales, with an emphasis on the cytoskeleton, its interactions with membranes and the signaling system.

Successful candidates for the position should be able to apply mathematical and computational tools and concepts of physics and engineering to biological systems, and work together with experimental collaborators across the world.

Candidates with background in biophysics, bioengineering, statistical physics, soft matter physics, computational physics, molecular dynamics, or related areas are encouraged to apply.

Lehigh University is located in eastern Pennsylvania, north of Philadelphia and west of New York City.

The position, which is funded by NIH, is available for two years and can be extended upon mutual agreement. The position will remain open until filled.
