Position Description

The biofluids group at Tulane University invites applications for a postdoctoral position funded, in part, by a grant from the National Science Foundation’s Joint DMS/NIGMS Initiative to Support Research at the Interface of the Biological and Mathematical Sciences to study selective factors in the evolution of multicellularity. In particular, the postdoctoral fellow will work with an interdisciplinary team of mathematicians and biologists from Tulane University (New Orleans), University of California (Berkeley) and Trinity University (San Antonio) to develop computational modeling approaches for investigating choanoflagellate hydrodynamic performance. The postdoc will have the opportunity to teach in the Department of Mathematics at Tulane University and will participate in other mentoring and professional development activities.


The successful candidate will have recently received a Ph.D. in Mathematics, Biomedical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics, or a related field and will be familiar with fluid dynamics. The appointment is for one year and, subject to successful performance and funding, renewable for up to two more years.
