2019 Fellows at The Princeton-CUNY Center for the Physics of Biological Function
August 6, 2018
Princeton, New Jersey
The Center for the Physics of Biological Function (CPBF), a joint effort between The Graduate Center at CUNY and Princeton University, is continuing its effort to strengthen research and teaching at the interface of physics and biology. We are searching for Center Fellows, both theorists and experimentalists, to be based in Princeton. Fellows will join our highly interactive group, with interests ranging from the dynamics of single molecules to neural computation, and from biochemical and genetic networks to collective behavior in populations.
Fellows must have recently completed their PhDs in a relevant field, will be appointed as Associate Research Scholars at Princeton University, and will have opportunities to collaborate closely with colleagues at CUNY. Appointments are for one year, with the expectation of reappointment pending satisfactory performance and continued funding, up to a total of three years. We expect new Fellows to join us for the Fall semester of 2019; start dates as early as February 2019 are possible.
For full consideration, all application materials should be received by September 15, 2018
Interviews will take place as part of several symposia including candidates for different searches. Please reserve the dates of October 10-11th and November 19-20th as potential dates for the symposium in case you are selected for an interview.
The Center for the Physics of Biological Function (CPBF), a joint effort between The Graduate Center at CUNY and Princeton University, is one of eleven Physics Frontier Centers established by the Physics Division of the National Science Foundation Directorate for Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS). We are a collection of scientists working at the interface of physics and biology with the goal of creating a physicist’s understanding of living systems: a physics of biological function that connects the myriad details of life, across all scales, to fundamental and universal physical principles. Our center focuses on new scientific opportunities and educational programs, integrating theory and experiment, research and education. For more details https://biophysics.princeton.edu/
