Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Physics of Living Systems at Arizona State University and Tufts University

Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Physics of Living Systems at Arizona State University

 

The Beyond Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science (http://beyond.asu.edu) at Arizona State University invites applications for a postdoctoral research position in the physics of living systems. The anticipated research will combine network theory and experimental data to develop novel computational models for understanding how information can be “written” into networks via environmental imprinting.  The project combines aspects of network and complex systems science, biophysics and information theory, and will involve close collaboration with the laboratory of Michael Levin at Tufts University  (http://ase.tufts.edu/biology/labs/levin/). Members of the group at Arizona State University include Paul Davies and Sara Imari Walker (www.emergence.asu.edu). The successful candidate will be expected to spend some time at Tufts University, for which travel funds are available, to facilitate the collaboration between theory and experiment in this project.  

 

The projected start date is early in 2016. Applicants must have a PhD in a related field by the time of appointment. Ideal candidates will have a background in computational modeling of complex systems, network theory, information theory, and/or dynamical systems. Applicants should send a cover letter, curriculum vitae, a statement of research interests, and should arrange to have 3 letters of recommendation to be sent to Jeanette Perez at perezjr@asu.edu.  The priority deadline for applications is November 30, 2015, however we will continue reviewing applications until the position is filled. Application materials should be sent in PDF format. Further inquiries should be emailed directly to Sara Imari Walker (sara.i.walker@asu.edu) or Paul Davies (paul.davies@asu.edu).

 

A background check is required for employment. Arizona State University is a VEVRAA Federal Contractor and an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.  All qualified applicants will be considered without regard to race, color, sex, religion, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other basis protected by law.
