The postdoc will work within the framework of the ANR project MoNa_Lisa aimed on designing and full characterization of self-propelled molecular machines, he/she will perform theoretical analytical and numerical studies of the complicated hydrodynamics of molecular propellers and their assemblies. He/she will work in the TSP group of the Institut Charles Sadron in Strasbourg (ICS) . The postdoc will be also responsible for communications with the synthetic and physical characterization groups working within the same ANR on the regular basis.


Analysis of the geometry of the various molecular propellers based on oligo-peptides by all-atomic-modelling.
Calculation of the flow fields, estimation of the drift velocities, diffusion and other parameters of the motorized propellers and their various assemblies to guide the synthetic part of the project in choosing the most promising structural blocks.
Analysis of the scattering and other data from the physical characterization group.


PhD in theoretical physics with application to soft matter problems.
A good background and working experience with numerical and simulation techniques to model molecular systems.
Some publications with analytical and scaling analysis in polymeric and/or self-assembling systems.
Some experience in application of classical hydrodynamics and/or fluid dynamics.
Interest in finding non-standard solutions.
Ability to work in permanent collaboration with experimentalists and chemists for this essentially multidisciplinary project.
Independence and initiative.
Fluency in spoken and written English, redaction and presentation skills.
