Niels Bohr Institute Faculty of Science

University of Copenhagen

We invite applicants for a postdoctoral fellowship in Mechanobiology and Active Matter.

Start date is (expected to be) 01 September 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter.

The project

Active matter comprises a wide range of living systems including cells, bacteria, and subcellular filaments, as well as artificial and synthetic materials that are continuously driven far from equilibrium by their constituent elements. Fundamental biological processes such as cell division, cell death, and the emergence of coordinated motion of cells are governed by the activation of biochemical signals by mechanical stresses and by the physics of active matter. This research project will use experimental investigation of collective cell organization with potential applications in the life sciences.

Who are we looking for?

We are looking for candidates with the knowledge on experimental active matter and mechanobiology.

The position consists of funding for two years with a possible extension for a third year. Further information on the Department is linked at https: // www. Inquiries about the position can be made to Professor Amin Doostmohammadi .
