Positions available

We enjoy students and postdocs with backgrounds in various areas of Theoretical Physics: Soft Matter, Biophysics, Statistical Mechanics, Computational Physics, Mechanics... Strong candidates are always encouraged to apply. Please contact Martin directly if you are interested in a position - informal inquiries welcome. You may also be interested in LPTMS' job board, or in thesis proposals from our graduate program (open to outside applicants).

Make sure to outline the specifics of your interest and the relevance of your experience to the group's activity in your application. We largely disregard generic applications.

M.S. and Ph.D. students

We currently have openings for masters' and Ph.D. students, with a focus on both theoretical and experimental approaches to frustrated self-assembly. Other possible projects include self-assembly in space and time, and we also welcome candidates interested in other projects within our fields of interest.

Postdoctoral researchers

We offer a range of postdoctoral opportunities. Currently we are most actively working for a theoretical postdoc working on cytoskeletal self-assembly and mechanics. On the longer term, our main focus is on frustrated self-assembly, with positions on analytical theory, numerical simulations, colloidal experiments and protein aggregation experiments. More details on our research page and in this notice. Additional projects, including on membrane-protein interactions are also available.
