Modelling phase transitions in the nucleus
The DNA-Polychrom project aims at designing new models to understand the key physical phenomena controlling chromatin structure and dynamics. The post-doctoral researcher will perform simulations of simple models of chromatin (such as lattice models of chromatin and mobile proteins), using either Monte Carlo or Brownian Dynamics algorithms.
Candidate’s profile – PhD in physics, biological physics, physical chemistry or theoretical chemistry. Strong interest for (1) biophysical problems, (2) computational approaches and numerical simulations.
Salary – 2300-2600 €/month (gross, depending on experience). Funded by ANR for 12 to 15 months. Additional funding may possibly extend the postdoctoral mission.
Location – Sorbonne Université is part of a vibrant academic community in Paris center. PHENIX is a laboratory of Sorbonne U.
