Using analytical theoretical approaches, we study the structure, phase behavior and dynamics of systems such as membranes, macromolecules, and biological cells, using the approaches of statistical thermodynamics. Through our interactions with experimental groups, the theory is applied to problems of membrane fusion, elasticity, self-assembly and adhesion of cells, and self-assembly of amphiphilic molecules. The postdoctoral fellow will contribute to projects involving collaborations with our experimental partners on problems in cell mechanics in contexts of development, beating cardiomyocytes and nuclear deformations in oncology. A background in theoretical soft matter or biological physics is required with an emphasis on analytical approaches.
