One (1) Ph.D., position available for doing research in Computational Biophysics & Statistical Mechanics in my Lab in the School of Mathematical & Computational Sciences. Highly motivated candidates with fellowships supported by e.g., CSIR, UGC, etc., may apply following the instructions given in (http://iacs.res.in/phd-student.html). Knowledge in computer programming is essential.
Apparently diverse, soft-matter biology and statistical mechanics meet on a common ground in our computational lab.
Biophysics: Our primary focus is to develop mathematical and computational models to make quantitative predictions of various intra- and inter-cellular processes including , mitosis, assembly of cellular organelles and cell-cell interaction.
Statistical mechanics: We carry out numerical studies to understand coarsening and aging dynamics in disordered magnetic systems and mechanical properties of random polymer networks.
