PhD position in Numerical Simulation of Cell Biology

An open PhD position is available in the DFG project “Phase-Field Models for Biological Cells in Flow”. The collaborative research project is shared between HTW Dresden and TU Freiberg. The funding will run for 3 years starting in April 2021. The salary is according to 75% of the German E13 scale (>1900 Euro per month net), including social and health care benefits.

The project is concerned with the fluid-structure interaction of a moving elastic surface (the cell cortex) embedded in viscous fluids and aims to answer fundamental questions on the organization of life by means of mathematical modeling and simulations. The mission will involve scientific exchange and collaboration with researchers from all over the world.

The successful candidate should have a diploma or master’s degree in Mathematics, Computational Engineering Science, Physics, or a related field, with a sound knowledge in numerical methods and an interest in biological applications.

Dresden is one of the most beautiful towns in Germany and evolved in recent years to an internationally recognized scientific center. It combines an outstanding scientific environment with a vivid cultural scene and cheap costs of living.
