S. A. Sergeev, PhD in math
He currently works in the Russian Academy of Science and does research in the field of semiclassical analysis and asymptotic for the linear theory of wave propagation (for example water waves or waves in crystals). Recently he added to his research some problems about asymptotic eigenfunctions of the Laplace operator for large eigenvalues.
He is also an associate professor in Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology where he developed program for students of 2-nd and 3-rd grades about numerical analysis and computational Mathematics. Also he has read courses about complex-variable functions and calculus.

Postdoctoral Postions at JNCASR, Bangalore, India Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the group of S. Sastry at JNCASR. Ongoing research in the group focusses on yielding and memory formation in amorphous solids, glassy dynamics, jamming, self assembly, nucleation and related themes. Suitable candidates should have interests broadly in statistical mechanics and soft condensed matter physics, with experience in computational investigations in these fields.

Tenure track position in environmental physics and mathematics in the Department of Solar Energy and Environmental Physics of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, Israel
The Department of Solar Energy and Environmental Physics seeks applied mathematicians and/or physicists interested in environmental science problems. Candidates with a background in one or more of the following fields are encouraged to apply, although candidates with other backgrounds may also be considered: statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, (geophysical) fluid dynamics, pattern formation, mathematical modeling of environmental systems, and mathematics and physics of global scale processes and climate change. The candidate should have post-doctoral experience and an excellent academic record. Interested candidates can submit their applications through:  

Postdoc positions 3D experiments on the collective behaviour of biological systems, at the Institute for Complex Systems of the CNR in Rome, Italy. We are looking for postdoctoral fellows interested in performing experimental research at the interface between physics and biology. The aim of our group is to study the collective phenomena of life through a close interplay between experimental data on biological groups in their natural environment and statistical physics methods. The candidates will conduct experimental data-taking campaigns in the field, on bird flocks and insect swarms. A strong emphasis will be put on the comparison between theory and experiments. The postdocs will join the COBBS Group in Rome (Collective Behaviour in Biological Systems), and work under the supervision of A. Cavagna and S. Melillo. The duration of the positions is two years, potentially extendable. The positions will be funded by the  ERC Advanced Grant RG.BIO to Andrea Cavagna. and Applications should be sent to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Postdoc at Physics Dept., with D. Sivak,  Simon Fraser U, Vancouver, CanadaPostdoc in stochastic thermodynamics of molecular machines, developing theory and numerical simulation for the design, analysis, and interpretation of experiments probing the fundamentals of effective molecular-scale energy transduction, both in model biophysical systems and molecular machines. Within this broad research thrust there is ample freedom to pursue particular areas of personal scientific interest. Initial 1 year appointment; renewable with mutual agreement. Start date is flexible.

Two postdoctoral positions in Condensed Matter Theory at the Fine Theoretical Physics Institute at the University of Minnesota. The appointments will start September 1, 2022, and will be for two years, with possible extensions to the third year.

We are seeking a strong, creative theorist for a postdoctoral position with a background in statistical physics and significant computational skills to study fundamental aspects of the structure and physical properties of equilibirum and nonequilibrium hyperuniform states of matter. The appointment is for 3 years. The successful applicant will be working under the supervision of Professors Salvatore Torquato and Paul Steinhardt. To apply, go to the link
to upload necessary information, including the names of three of references. The selection committee will begin to read applications June 01, 2022 and make decisions afterwards.
