PhD Research Fellowship in Mechanics/Biophysics (ref 225748)

Updated: about 2 months ago
Job Type: FullTime
Deadline: 24 May 2022

A PhD Research Fellowship is available at the Department of Mathematics, Section for Mechanics at the University of Oslo (UiO). The position is parts of large interdisciplinary projects funded by the Research Council of Norway, which focuses on the development of mathematical models and numerical simulations of cell membrane dynamics. More specifically, it will address the basic mechanochemical processes that regulate one of the most fundamental communication pathways in cell biology - the encapsulation and internalization of liquid and transmembrane cargo at intracellular membranes. The PhD research fellowship will be part of the group of Prof. Andreas Carlson ( , where the work will be conducted in close collaboration with experimental cell biologists (Oslo University Hospital) and bio-chemists (UiO).

The PhD student will:   

  •  Develop theoretical models for intracellular membrane dynamics, coupling elastic effects, fluid flow and the biological membrane composition.
  • Implement and solve numerically the theoretical membrane model
  • Collaborate with experimentalists.
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team with expertise in mechanics, physics and biophysics.
