Post-doctoral position in polymer physics of bacterial DNA


" The modelling of chromosome replication and segregation
in bacteria using polymer physics approches.




Objectives: to develop realistic  in  silico  models  of  DNA  replication  and  segregation  taking  into  account  the topological  properties  of  bacterial  DNA  (DNA  supercoiling).

Prerequisite knowledge & skills: strong background  in  statistical  physics,  polymer  physics,  computational  or  mathematical methods, ,  with  an  interest  to  apply  computational  and  simulation  tools  to  understand the functioning of living organisms.
