Scientia Fellows at the Department of Mathematics

This project is part of the Scientia Fellows II programme.

A postdoc position is open related to this project. Look below for information about how to apply. 

Our group at Mechanics, Department of Mathematics has now an open postdoc positions as a part of the Scientia Fellows II (2019-2024) programme. This transnational fellowship programme is coordinated by the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, and co-funded by the Horizon 2020, Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA COFUND).
We are looking for ambitious candidates interested in formulating their own research projects together with us as the host.
The thematic areas we offer focus on developing mathematical models and computational methods to study some of the basic biophysical mechanisms in cell biology and/or in neuroscience, which may help unravel aspects related to neuro-degenerative diseases and cancer. These biomechanical phenomena include, but are not limited to, the micro-circulation in tissue and how cells remodel their membranes.
As an example, our research group participates in two projects, which may serve as possible areas of research for this Scientia Fellows fellowship:
· Mathematical modeling of processes leading to Alzheimer’s disease
· Mechanochemical interplay in intraluminal vesicle formation
The successful candidate will be employed full time (36 months) by the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences, UiO. In addition to our dynamic research environments, the fellow will benefit from a large network of collaborators.

Eligibility criteria and details on how to apply can be found at the Scientia Fellows II webpages. Before appyling, the project plan has to be developed together with the two hosts, Andreas Carlson and Kent-Andre Mardal.
