postdoc : développement et traitement de biofilm en milieu poreux (IFPEN/LEMTA)


postdoc bacterial behaviours in swarms (Laboratoire Jean Perrin)

Swarming in the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a complex multi-scale problem that involves billions of motile individuals interacting with each other and with the physical environment. In particular, the secretion of bio-surfactants by the bacteria leads to striking spreading patterns and raises soft matter and active matter questions.
The project will use various imaging techniques at various scales to study how physics controls bacterial behaviours in swarms.

The project will be performed in the Laboratoire Jean Perrin (, Sorbonne Université, Paris, in collaboration with Dr. Maxime Deforet. The Laboratoire Jean Perrin is a biophysics department that recently joined the Institut de Biology Paris-Seine ( The postdoc position is funded for one year through a Emergence-Sorbonne Université awarded to the group and will start in early 2020.

The candidate must have a PhD degree in Physics and experience with living systems, or in Life Sciences and experience in quantitative approaches and image analysis. Proficiency in appropriate programming languages and software (MATLAB, C++, ImageJ, micro-manager), and/or in molecular biology of bacteria is appreciated. To apply please send a résumé, a cover letter describing your interests and previous work, as well as contact information of two references to Maxime Deforet:

Postdoc position in Experimental Astrophysics, Universidad de Chile (Santiago, Chile)

Postdoc position for studying the the effect of tribocharging on granular agglomeration
and its relevance for planet formation. Two experiments are being developed:  
(1) a 3m free-fall apparatus to observe and characterize collisions between pairs of 
particles in vacuum; (2) Controlled collisions using an ultrasonic levitation apparatus. 
Working with real and simulated meteoritic samples, we will probe the enhancement 
of clustering efficiency due to tribocharging. Experimental results will be used as inputs 
of numerical simulations, in collaboration with astronomers and theoretical physicists. 
Selected candidate will have to present a research grant at FONDECYT for funding
(; if funded, the position is expected to start in April 2020. 
The candidate must have his/her PhD certificate before Oct. 1, 2019 for the 
FONDECYT application.
