Postdoc Applications – Deadline: April 30, 2021
We invite interested young researchers to apply for postdoc positions available at the group “Millennium Nucleus Physics of Active Matter” at the Physics department of the University of Chile (Santiago). The applicants should have a strong training in physics or disciplines related to the project (see below) with skills in theoretical, numerical and/or experimental research. The selected candidates will participate in an open work atmosphere of collaboration between theoreticians and experimentalists working in different problems related to the “Physics of Active Matter”.
We are particularly interested in developing:
1- Stochastic Thermodynamics and other theoretical approaches for active matter and non-equilibrium systems in general.
2- Ecology on-Chip, particularly cell migration, swarm intelligence and biomechanics.
3- Bacterial suspensions in the frontier between biology and micro-fluidics development.
4- Synthetic and biological microswimmers under confinement with strong applications to intelligent farming and self-cleaning biophysics.
Although, we are interested in these particular areas we are open to recommendations from the applicants.

Financial support from our side is committed for one year and will be extended yearly upon agreement between the two parties. In consist in a monthly salary of 1.770.000 Chilean pesos (2500 USD approx). Operational expenses and expenses associated to conferences (such as plane tickets, etc.) can be covered from our research budget.
Candidates should send a CV, research interests, a motivation letter and the names and contact information of 2-3 researchers that can provide references to prof. Francisca Guzmán-Lastra, firstname.lastname@example.org. For any further information, please feel free to contact.
