CIMNE is looking for a PhD Researcher to be part of the Research and Technical Development (RTD) Group on “Soft and living materials”. The group develops theories and computations to understand, quantify, and rationally manipulate living matter and biomimetic soft materials. The offered position aims at studying and simulating worm locomotion on soft substrates. The candidate will implement solid on substrate interaction and apply optimisation techniques on the discrete system. The PhD thesis will be supervised by José J Muñoz (email@example.com) and close interaction and periodic meetings with experimentalists at Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) is also expected.
