We invite applications for a theoretical/computational research postdoctoral position in soft matter and biological physics to work in the group of Prof. Lisa Manning (https://mmanning.expressions.syr.edu/) in the physics department at Syracuse University. There is flexibility in the precise research topic; possibilities include the mechanical properties of biological tissues, active matter, and amorphous or granular materials.
The successful candidate will have opportunities to interact with faculty, postdocs and students in the Soft and Living Matter group at Syracuse University. Ideally, the appointment will begin in the Spring or Summer of 2019. Applicants should have a PhD in Physics, Biophysics, Engineering, or a related field, and demonstrated experience in theoretical or computational soft matter or biophysics. To apply, candidates should submit their application materials, including a Cover letter, CV, research statement, and emails of three references using the following website: http://www.sujobopps.com/postings/78182.
Applications will be considered immediately and on a rolling basis until the position is filled. Syracuse University is an equal-opportunity, affirmative-action institution. Women and under-represented minorities are encouraged to apply.
