Dear SoftMatter community,

We have an open PostDoc position at the interface of Theoretical Physics
and Biology in the cluster of excellence ‘Physics of Life’ at TU
Dresden, Germany
for 9 months (with possible extension for additional 9 months)
to be filled as soon as possible.

A possible topic would be « Information Theory of Chemotaxis ».
You can find out more about this work of our ‘Biological Algorithms
Group’ in our recent publications:
– « Sperm surfing along concentration filaments »

– « Physics of chemokinesis »

– « Bayesian gradient sensing »

There is a possibility to supervise students and also to become
co-author of two manuscripts in preparation.

A strong background in nonlinear dynamics, stochastic processes,
computational physics and ideally a work visa for Germany would be a
strong plus.
Informal inquiries can be directly sent to

Best wishes
Benjamin Friedrich

Dresden is a lovely, medium-sized city with vibrant cultural life and a
national park with climbing rocks nearby.
