Position: Research Associate on Theoretical Cell Mechanics
Institution: University College London
Department: Physics and Astronomy
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The project involves studying the self-organisation and mechanics of the cell cytoskeleton using theory and computational simulations. The goal is to decipher the molecular principles underlying the assembly, stability and dynamics of cytoskeletal structures and the regulation of eukaryotic cell shapes. We seek to develop a cross-scale understanding of how cell polarization is generated and stabilized, and how to control dynamic transitions between different cell morphologies
Requirements: The successful applicant will have a PhD in Physics, Biophysics or Computational Biology, with expertise in Statistical Physics, Soft Matter Physics, and/or Computational Methods for the modelling of non-equilibrium soft matter systems. Candidates should have the ability for creative and original research of the highest impact, as demonstrated by a strong scientific publication track record in highly regarded international peer-reviewed journals. Knowledge of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics, soft matter physics, and cell mechanics is desirable
