postdoc kirigami sheets in flows (LadHyx)

I have an opening for a 2-year postdoc to work on the ANR-funded project FLORIGAMI. The position will ideally start in September/October 2022. This project lies at the interface of two exciting domains that are fluid/structure interaction and mechanical metamaterials. The work concerns the experimental and theoretical study of the behavior of kirigami sheets in flows. For further details and information on how to apply, see the attachement.

Workshop on Physics and Biology of Plant Growth – Ein Gedi, Israel (Jan30-Feb2 2023)

The growing plant is a fascinating system involving multiple fields. Biologically, it is a multi-cellular system controlled by complex bio-chemical networks. Physically, it is an example of an « active solid » – an extended solid system, whose element (cells) are active, performing mechanical work to drive the evolving geometry. Computationally, it acts as a distributed system, processing a multitude of local inputs into a coordinated developmental response. The goal of this meeting is to provide a rare opportunity to bring together researchers from these different but complementary disciplines, and study the plant as a living, information-processing organism, which uses physical laws and biological mechanisms to alter its own shape, and negotiate its environment.

Winter Aspen Conference on Active Matter in Complex Environments (2-6 Jan 2023)

Active matter is a prominent area of research in soft matter and biological physics: it gives us the opportunity to learn new physics (active materials are out of equilibrium), engineer new materials (e.g., « intelligent » responsive materials), and understand more about biology (e.g., cells, migratory animals, and even subcellular motor proteins are active materials). While a tremendous amount of work has focused on the physics of active matter in bulk/unconfined environments, recent work is starting to demonstrate the rich physics associated with active matter in complex environments characterized by tortuosity, confinement, and complex interactions. This Aspen Winter Conference will focus on this new direction in active matter research at the interface of soft matter physics, statistical and nonlinear physics, biology, and engineering.  

This Conference will bring together a diverse group of leading theorists and experimentalists to discuss (1) Fundamentals, (2) Collective behaviors, (3) Interactions with complex fluids, (4) Biological active matter, (5) Synthetic active matter/assemblies. Our ultimate goal is to foster new collaborations, clarify unifying/open questions for future research to address, and brainstorm new directions for the field that cut across physics, biology, materials, engineering, and other disciplines. 

The workshop will be in-person, over five days spanning January 2-6, 2023 (the last day will be a half day).  We are putting together the agenda to have extensive Q&A and discussion sessions as well as recreational breaks each day.  There will also be a welcome reception on the evening of Sunday January 1.  We are currently fundraising with the intention of being able to help offset some costs associated with meeting registration, housing, and travel. 

To register, click the « Apply now » link here; the registration deadline is at the end of the month.

Postdoc Red blood cell deformability – MSC Paris

A post-doctoral position is available at the Laboratory ‘Matière et Systèmes Complexes’ (MSC), Paris, France (http://www.msc.univ-paris-diderot.fr/) to work on an innovative, cross-disciplinary project combining materials science, biology and clinical research. 

The project, funded by the IdEx Université Paris Cité, will be carried out in collaboration with the ‘Biologie Intégrée du Globule Rouge’ Laboratory (BIGR, INSERM) and the Necker Hospital.

The motivated candidate will conduct a comparative study of healthy red blood cells with intracellular nanorheology, an innovative technique recently developed at MSC, and ektacytometry, a reference technique for the diagnosis of red blood cell deformability (BIGR). This study will be followed by a clinical study on blood samples from sickle cell patients. We will investigate the relevance of intracellular nanorheology to facilitate patient monitoring for blood diseases affecting cell stiffness. 

You can find more details about the project and the application here: 

http://www.msc.univ-paris-diderot.fr/IMG/pdf/CDD-Nano-Ekta-MSC-BIGR-post-doc.pdf

The initial appointment is for 10 months starting October 1, 2022, as soon as possible, with the possibility of renewal for an additional 9 months.

We look forward to receiving your CV and cover letter (max. 1 page) and two reference contacts. Please send them by e-mail to Dr. B. Abou berengere.abou@u-paris.fr and mention the reference « Red Blood Cell Sinay ».
