The Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP) Positions

New Assistant Professor position, October 2020

The Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP) has a position open for Assistant Professor in Theoretical Biological Physics. You can apply for this position here.

The Center for Theoretical Biological Physics is actively recruiting recent quantitative science (physics, mathematics, chemistry, etc.) Ph.D. graduates for postdoctoral positions beginning January 1, 2021. We are looking to fill several positions with postdoctoral candidates well-versed in quantitative science, but also very interested in learning and tackling research problems in the realm of life sciences.

The Center for Theoretical Biological Physics (CTBP) also offers many opportunities to those interested in participating in the various research efforts underway at the different partner locations.

  • Postdoctoral Fellow
  • Undergraduate Student Internships (Summer/Academic Year)
  • Graduate Students
  • CTBP Postdoctoral Fellowships
  • Other Postdoctoral Fellowships w/CTBP Faculty
  • Visiting Scholars Program - Senior Investigators/Faculty

We are continuing to accept applications for CTBP Postdoctoral Fellows - positions start early Spring every year.

CTBP faculty may continue to invite or hire new postdoctoral fellows in the CTBP postdoctoral pool using individual-investigator research awards.

Physics of Living Systems (PoLS) Positions

The Yale University Physics Department invites applications for the Yale Mossman Postdoctoral Fellowship, which is intended to support promising physicists in the early stages of their careers. More details can be found here. For inquiries about this position, please contact Prof. Witold Skiba at witold.skiba@yale.edu.

The Leiden Institute of Physics (LION) is searching a new faculty member, to be appointed within the Institute Lorentz for theoretical physics. We are particularly interested in candidates with a focus on theoretical biophysics and complex systems (e.g. cell and tissue mechanics, self-organization in biological matter, biological and non-biological networks, econophysics etc.) and/or with a unique approach that connects with our research lines in quantum matter and information, particle physics and cosmology. Leiden University attaches much importance to diversity and in particular welcomes applications from groups which are underrepresented in the institution. To further this goal, in first instance only applications from women will be taken under consideration. Appointments at associate or full professor level may be considered for outstanding candidates. For more information and to apply, please visit here.

If you are interested in a postdoctoral position with one of the PoLS institutions, please contact the group directly.

Visiting Student Internships

Graduate students in the PoLS program have the opportunity to participate in an Visiting Student Internship, where a student travels to another lab to learn a technique or teach a technique, and collaborate in person.

There are numerous benefits to such a program. The grad student gets to explore research life in another lab, establish collaborations with peers that could extend into their professional career, develop a relationship with another faculty mentor, and, of course, advance their research project. Please see the current available opportunities here.

If you are interested in a temporary placement in another laboratory, please discuss this with your advisor and the faculty member of the lab you will be visiting. After that, please contact Margie Dieter to register your rotation.

If you have questions, please contact Margie Dieter, Program Manager.
