Vous trouverez ci-joint les détails de ce workshop: Flyer workshop Carreau en pdf

Ecole Physics of integrated biological systems (Cargese, Sept 2018)

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to bring to your attention the following EMBO/CNRS summer school that we are organizing September 11-21 2018 in beautiful Cargèse (Corsica – http://www.iesc.univ-corse.fr/index.php?id=1&L=0), and would be grateful if you could share the poster and link with your young colleagues.

The objective of this summer school is to help biologists grasp basic concepts of Physics applied to Biology, such that they could more easily interact with physicists and design their experiments with physics concepts in mind. To help reach this objective, we have planned the programme along three lines:
1/ Some invited speakers will give tutorials to introduce key concepts or tools of physics and mathematics useful to biology.
2/ Almost all invited speakers are coming as pairs of biologists and physicists who have collaborated in the recent past to address a common biological problem; they will share how their collaboration unfolded and which obstacle they had to sometimes to overcome.
3/ In addition, there will be two prestigious Company of Biologists-sponsored keynote speakers, Jacques Prost a father of Physics applied to Biology, and Eric Wieschaus, Noble Prize in Medicine for his contributions to Drosophila development.

Additional info can be found on the following links:

http://meetings.embo.org/event/18-biosystems

The price for the course will be 850€ (including accommodation, breakfast and lunch). Please note that the deadline for applying is June 1st 2018.

We thank you in avance for making your colleagues aware of the event, and apologize in advance if you receive this mail more than once.

With best wishes,

Michel Labouesse and François Robin

post-doc : analytical, numerical and experimental study of uniform elastic rods (EPFL)

Assistantship in the Maddocks group at the EPFL http://lcvmwww.epfl.ch

A position is available to work on a combined analytical, numerical and experimental study of uniform elastic rods in two contexts:

1) the characterisation of helical equilibria, including stability properties, in both the cases of self-avoiding and self-contacting configurations,

and

2) the equilibria of knots in the presence of friction.

The first project will be carried out in collaboration with the group of Prof J. Kolinski (emsi.epfl.ch) and the second in collaboration with the group of Prof Pedro Reis (fleXLab: Flexible Structures Laboratory)

Preferences will be given to applications at the postdoctoral level, although doctoral level applications will also be considered. Review of applications will start April 15 and will continue until the post is filled. The position is available immediately, with the desired starting date being as soon as practicable, with December 2018 being the latest possible start date.

The application procedure and further information is described at http://lcvmwww.epfl.ch/jobs.php

ATELIER MePhy Instabilités en Mécanique du Solide le 16 mai 2018

Instabilités en Mécanique du Solide / Instabilities in Solid Mechanics

Le but de ces journées est de faire le point sur les études actuelles de stabilité de systèmes en mécanique des solides. Il s’agit tout d’abord de caractériser ou détecter une perte de stabilité et le mode instable correspondant, et éventuellement de contrôler ou de retarder l’instabilité. Mais on peut aussi chercher à utiliser une instabilité pour permettre d’actionner, d’imposer un motif particulier, de modifier la réponse non-linéaire, etc..

The aim of this workshop is to bring together and foster the discussion between communities dealing with instabilities in Solid Mechanics. The research on instabilities in Solid Mechanics is very currently very active: In some cases, the aim is to determine, prevent or control the stability of a system; In a different stream of research, the idea is to use an unstable behaviour (to trigger a spatial pattern, or a non-linear mechanical response).
