Postdoc Theoretical physics of curved multi-cellular systems – CENTURI Marseille

A postdoctoral position is available immediately in my lab at the Center for Theoretical Physics (CPT) in Marseille, France.  The project will study the interactions of tissue flows with curvature in the fruit fly embryo, in a collaboration with the developmental biology team of Thomas Lecuit.  A combination of analytical approaches, experimental data analysis, and computer simulation will be employed to examine how tissue-scale changes in Gaussian curvature interact with cell-scale processes during fly embryogenesis.

A recent preprint from our collaboration can be found here:

The two-year position is fully funded by the Alan Turing Center for Living Systems (CENTURI,, an interdisciplinary research hub in Marseille that brings together physicists, biologists, engineers, and mathematicians.  To apply for the position in my group (, please send cover letter, cv, and email addresses of two references to  Applications will be considered continuously until the position is filled.

Postdoc physics-based approaches to urban traffic and mobility – ILM Lyon

I have an opening for a one-year postdoctoral fellowship on physics-based approaches to urban traffic & mobility, at Institut Lumière Matière, near Lyon (France). The position is funded by the Institute of Physics of CNRS and will ideally start in September/October 2022. The postdoctoral project will further our exploration of novel approaches, inspired from Statistical and Condensed Matter Physics, to derive the (statistical) laws that govern urban car traffic and pedestrian mobility. For this specific postdoctoral position, the focus will be put on the resilience of the transport system to small perturbations at the local scale. More information, as well as details about the application process, can be found here:

Postdoc numerical and experimental mechanics of seismic fault sliding (LaMCoS,Lyon)

Dear colleages and friends,

I am recruiting a postdoctoral fellow for a 2-years project about numerical and experimental mechanics of seismic fault sliding. Candidates should hold a PhD in one of these disciplines: Rock Mechanics, Fault Mechanics, Tribology, Surface and Friction Science, Mechanical Engineering, or Granular Physics. The project is ANR-funded, it is called « Do Rock faults Asperities Melt or Abrade during earthquakes? (DRAMA) », and will take place at the LaMCoS, INSA Lyon, France, in collaboration with several french and international institutes.

If you know good candidates, please be kind enough to transfer them the attached document.
