About the Project
Research in the Lee group expands the horizons of physics and biology by studying biological problems that demand the development of novel physics. We enjoy close collaborations with biologists (Department of Life Sciences) and bioengineers (Department of Bioengineering) at Imperial College, and biologists (Dunn School of Pathology) at the University of Oxford.
We seek a highly motivated applicant who has obtained, or is about to obtain, an Honours Degree at 2.1 (or equivalent) or higher in physics, mathematics, or a closely related discipline. The successful applicant will perform both numerical simulations and analytical calculations. Imperial College has a vibrant biological physics community and meets weekly at journal clubs and seminars during term time (http://www.bg.ic.ac.uk/research/c.lee/bpjc.xhtml). The successful candidate will also have opportunities to engage with the Imperial College Network of Excellence: Physics of Life (http://www.imperial.ac.uk/physics-of-life). The start-date of the project is flexible with the earliest being in October 2020.
How to apply
Informal enquiries to Dr Chiu Fan Lee ([Email Address Removed]) are welcome. The application should include a full CV, names and addresses and contact details of two academic referees, a personal statement (500 words max) and a covering letter. Completed applications should be submitted to Dr Lee via email by 6 pm on the 10th July 2020.
