PhD fellow in Soft Matter Physics and Active M

Københavns Universitet (KU)



The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering a PhD scholarship in Soft Matter Physics and Active Matter commencing 1 October 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter.

Description of the scientific environment
At the Active Intelligent Matter Group we combine multiscale modeling – discrete and continuum simulations - with in-house experiments to address various aspects of complexities in active materials. This spans a wide range of problems from revealing the impact of mechanical forces on biochemical signalling in cells, investigating the dynamics of bacterial competition, to design and control of bio-inspired materials that are capable of self-organization, self-healing, and self-pumping.

We offer a highly creative and collaborative research atmosphere at the interface between physics, biology and fluid mechanics. The PhD fellowship is given in accordance with Danish legislation and will typically run for 3 years. The salary is set accordingly to Danish Union Contracts which are quite competitive on an international scale.

Project description
Soft matter physics lies at the heart of a quantitative understanding of many biological processes. From subcellular protein-driven flows to multicellular organ formation, biological matter continuously drives itself away from thermodynamic equilibrium using internal biochemical processes. In addition to their important biological roles, these intrinsically multiscale systems provide novel ideas for fundamental theories of non-equilibrium statistical physics and biomimetic inspiration for synthetic micro-machines capable of locomotion and self-organization.

This project will use theoretical and computational modeling to study fundamental problems in active matter with potential applications in the life sciences. A number of projects include close collaborations with theorists and experimental biophysicists in US, UK, Japan, and Europe, and the successful candidate is expected to visit them.

Principal supervisor isDr. Amin Doostmohammadi, Niels Bohr Institute, doostmohammadi@nbi.ku.dk, +45 53364260.

Job description
The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:

  • To manage and carry through your research project
  • Attend PhD courses
  • Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
  • Teach and disseminate your research
  • To stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably abroad
  • Work for the department

Formal requirements
Applicants should hold an MSc degree in Physics or a relevant field with good results and good English skills. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications emphasis will also be laid on previous publications (if any) and relevant work experience.

Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.

Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.

The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 331,125 (approx. €43,750) including annual supplement (+ pension at a minimum DKK 53,811). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.

Application Procedure
The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.

Please include

  • Cover Letter, detailing your motivation and background for applying for this PhD project.
  • CV
  • Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)
  • Acceptance Letter for the relevant MSc Programme at SCIENCE, if any
  • Other information for consideration, e.g. list of publications (if any)
  • 2-3 reference letters

The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.

The deadline for applications is 1 August 2020, 23:59 GMT +2.

After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee. Afterwards an assessment committee will be appointed to evaluate the selected applications. The applicants will be notified of the composition of the committee and the final selection of a successful candidate will be made by the Head of Department, based on the recommendations of the assessment committee and the interview committee.

The main criterion for selection will be the research potential of the applicant and the above mentioned skills. The successful candidate will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science.
