Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the group of Dr E. Lauga who will join the faculty at DAMTP on July 1 2013. The position is focused on theoretical low-Reynolds-number fluid dynamics problems relevant to biology and medicine. In addition to biological fluid mechanics, Dr Lauga has interests in the flow of complex fluids, soft condensed matter, and mathematical modelling in continuum physics.
The successful applicant will hold (or be about to complete) a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Physics, Biological Physics, or a closely related field and will join a rapidly expanding effort in biological physics and mathematical biology within DAMTP. The candidate will have an extensive mathematical training with a strong track-record of research in the field of fundamental fluid dynamics or theoretical biological physics, and an aptitude for computer programming.
For further details about the group, please consult Dr Lauga’s current webpage (http://maeresearch.ucsd.edu/lauga/) or send an email to e.lauga@damtp.cam.ac.uk.
The salary will be on the standard University scale in the range £27,854 to £36,298 per annum depending on previous research experience.
