Postdoctoral position in biophysics of yeast mating (Polin Group)


Following a recent HFSP award I am currently looking for a Postdoc to join my group ( on an exciting interdisciplinary project looking at the biophysics of sexual mating in yeast. This is a 4-groups project with three other teams in Italy, USA and Australia. The position will initially be for 2y with the possibility of extending it by 1 more year. The work is based at the Mediterranean Institute for Advanced Studies (IMEDEA UIB-CSIC, Mallorca, Spain), where the PDRA will join a dynamic interdisciplinary environment. 


The ideal candidate will have a strong background on experimental microbial biophysics (e.g. light microscopy, microfluidics, image analysis, particle tracking) and the ability to build new setups and improve existing ones. They will be strongly motivated and independent.  Previous experience in numerical simulations and mathematical modelling will be a plus. 


Application deadline: Nov 15th

Starting date (negotiable): Jan 1st 2022
