STI – Two PhD student positions in Interfacial Imaging of Water: New Light on Cellular Hydration


Two PhD student positions are available at the Laboratory for fundamental BioPhotonics (LBP) at the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. Introduction Water is the liquid of life. It is intimately linked to our well-being. Without water, cell membranes cannot function. Charges and charged groups cannot be dissolved, self-assembly cannot occur, and proteins cannot (…)

SB – PhD position in physics and systems neuroscience


We are looking for PhD students and postdocs interested in physics and systems neuroscience. Our laboratory combines theory and experiment to investigate how circuits in the brain compute decisions dynamically. In experiments, we measure brain activity in C. elegans worms using novel microscopy techniques. On the theoretical side, our interests extend from image analysis using (…)

SB – PhD sur optique non-linéaire et optique quantique dans des cristaux photoniques


Le groupe cristaux photoniques de l’Institut de Physique recherche un doctorant pour un travail de thèse dans le domaine des cristaux photoniques planaires. Les cristaux photoniques sont des structures optiques constituées de réseaux de trous ou de piliers d’une dimension de l’ordre de quelque 100 nm gravés dans un guide d’onde planaire diélectrique. Dans ces (…)

SB – PhD position on optical trapping in photonic crystal structures


A PhD student position is available at the Photonic crystal group in the Institute of Physics in the fields of optical tweezers and planar photonic crystals. Planar photonic crystals consist of 100 nanometer sized arrays of holes etched in a planar semiconductor waveguide. These structures allow the control of the electromagnetic field at the wavelength scale. (…)

SB – PhD Position Statistical Mechanics of Intracellular condensates


Liquid-liquid phase separation has been recently emerged as a new mechanism to create specialized compartments inside cells, from bacteria to single-cellular and multi-cellular eukaryotes, without the need of an enveloping membrane. Although the framework of standard phase separation has been used to explain their formation, in more recent years it has been acknowledged that in (…)
