Projet/résidence artistique pour chercheur en sciences (Le Fresnoy)

Appel à projets à destination des doctorants et chercheurs scientifiques
Date limite envoi des candidatures > 28 février 2020
Call for projects from doctoral students and research scientists
Dealine for applications > February 28, 2020

Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains lance un appel à candidatures à l’adresse des chercheurs scientifiques et des doctorants qui souhaiteraient développer un projet en rapport avec leur activité de recherche, tout en s’immergeant dans un environnement artistique.
Cet appel, lancé pour la troisième année consécutive, s’inscrit dans le prolongement de ces actions tout en participant à la préfiguration d’un projet d’extension du Fresnoy, dans ses bâtiments comme dans ses activités.
Il est attendu un projet de nature scientifique, ou dont les enjeux intéressent la science. Le candidat participera au cursus proposé aux artistes étudiants et bénéficiera pour son projet des mêmes moyens de production que ces derniers.

Le Fresnoy – Studio national des arts contemporains is calling for applications from researchers interested in working on a project related to their research interest in an artistic environment that offers advanced audiovisual production tools.
This will be the third consecutive year for this residency which is part of the efforts taken by Le Fresnoy to bring together artists and scientists and contributes to the prefiguration of an extension project for Le Fresnoy, both in its buildings and in its activities.
The chosen project will be scientific,or involve questions that touch on scientific concerns. The researcher will follow the same courses as Le Fresnoy artist/students and enjoy the same production resources for their project.

Postdoc position in theoretical soft matter physics in Marseille, France

I am looking for a strong and motivated scientist to work on the relation between structure and rheology in disordered materials, with a focus on semi-flexible fiber networks. The position is fully funded by the Alan Turing Center for Living Systems, a new interdisciplinary research hub in Marseille that brings together physicists, biologists, engineers, and mathematicians. 

To apply for the position, please send cv and email addresses of two references to

Applications will be considered continuously until the position is filled.


2 postdoc statistical mechanics of glasses (ENS Paris)

A post-doctoral positions is open at ENS Paris to work in collaboration with Francesco Zamponi and Ludovic Berthier.
The research project concerns the low-temperature properties of glasses, and the nature of their excitations and defects. We want to systematically explore the microscopic nature of tunnelling Two-Level Systems (TLS) in these systems, following up on our recent preprints [arxiv:1910.11168 and arxiv:1906.06894]. The candidate is expected to have at least some background in the physics of glasses, and on standard computational methods such as Molecular Dynamics. Experience with LAMMPS is welcome.

Please check for details

Applications are invited for a postdoc in theoretical statistical mechanics, to work with Francesco Zamponi and Giulio Biroli at ENS-Paris, in close collaboration with Grzegorz Szamel and Patrick Charbonneau.
The overall project focuses on obtaining a first-principle statistical mechanics description of amorphous solids. The specific goal for this position is to obtain a microscopic understanding of activated hopping processes, which are elementary, non-perturbative corrections to the mean-field description of liquids and glasses [see e.g. arxiv:1407.5677].
Candidates should have a PhD in physics or related fields, with experience in the statistical mechanics of disordered systems.

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:
