Postdoc Postdoc Positions in Biological Fluid Mechanics

University of Cambridge, UK is inviting applicants to apply for a postdoctoral associate position in applied mathematics. The funds for this position are available for 2 years. Applications are invited up to March 10, 2019.

Applications are invited for up to two postdoctoral positions in the group of Professor E. Lauga. The positions are focused on the biological physics and fluid mechanics of swimming bacteria and supported by a Consolidator Grant from the European Research Council.

The successful applicants will hold (or be about to complete) a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics, Physics, Biophysics, Engineering or a closely related field.

The positions will have an emphasis on theory. The ideal candidates will have an extensive training in applied mathematics, a strong taste for interdisciplinary research problems and a strong track record of theoretical research at the intersection of hydrodynamic and biological physics. Candidates with a strong track record of fundamental research using numerical methods applied to fluid mechanics (such as the boundary element method for Stokes flows and related) and will also be considered.

In addition to biological fluid mechanics, Professor Lauga has research interests in the flow of complex fluids and soft matter mechanics. For further details about the group, please consult Professor Lauga’s webpage (

Duties will include developing and conducting individual and collaborative research objectives, proposals and projects. The role holder will be expected to plan and manage their own research and administration, with guidance if required, and to assist in the preparation of proposals and applications to external bodies. They must be able to communicate material of a technical nature and be able to build internal and external contacts. They may be asked to assist in the supervision of student projects, the development of student research skills, provide instruction or plan/deliver seminars relating to the research area.

Informal enquiries about the position may be made to the coordinator for this recruitment at:

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years. The salary will be on the standard University scale in the range 32,236-39,609 depending on previous research experience.

The closing date for this position is 10th March 2019.
