Soft Matter field evolution analyzed by LLM

The Soft Matter field has seen significant developments over the past decade, with various topics emerging and gaining popularity. Here’s an analysis of the most popular topics in Soft Matter research from 2011 to 2024: Nanoparticle-based soft matter (2011-2016): Reasons: The rise of nanotechnology and its potential to revolutionize various fields, including materials science, led to a surge in research involving nanoparticles and their assembly into soft materials. Key developmen...Read More

Postdoc: q-bio of cellular information processing

We are looking for postdocs with expertise in biology, physics, mathematics, or engineering. Opportunities span experimental, computational, and theoretical projects centered around quantitative micro- and cell-biology. Although research topics are flexible, potential areas of exploration include live-cell imaging of individual and collective cellular behaviors (potentially involving strain construction), information-theoretic analyses of cell signaling, image and time-series analyses using adva...Read More

Postdoc on modelling complex colloidal mixtures for use in bionic muscle engineering (Paris-Saclay, France)

We have an open PDRA position (fully funded, four years) on biocompatible stimuli-responsive polymer/colloid mixtures at the Laboratoire de Physique des Solides in Orsay, France funded by the European Innovation Council (EIC) through a Pathfinder Open research grant. This grant was awarded to a research consortium composed of groups from Eindhoven University of Technology (The Netherlands), The Adolphe Merkle Institute in Fribourg (Switzerland), CNRS/University Paris-Saclay (France), and Univ...Read More

Phd research project: A radical approach to Alzheimer’s Disease via next-generation computational and experimental methods

The proposed PhD project takes on a radical new path towards the study of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), which will open novel avenues for the development of breakthrough drugs with high-therapeutic efficacy against AD. This research path builds upon accumulating, compelling and independent lines of evidence, which demonstrate that a family of microorganism are associated to AD (https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-03084-9). This has established the Infectious Hypothesis (IH) of AD. Indeed, we ...Read More

Postdoc: Theoretical modeling of nanoparticles interacting with cells

OBJECTIVES The project is based on a recent publications showing the importance of membrane tension for interaction of nanoparticles with cells1–3. Deformation of cells and compression of lipid bilayers by strongly adsorbing nanoparticles is related to a non-chemical and non-biological mechanism of recently discovered antibacterial action of nanoparticles. (i) Molecular Dynamics, Langevin dynamics, numerical surface evolvers, as well as analytical theory based on the Helfrich model will be used ...Read More
