Research in our group focusses on (i) fundamental theoretical challenges in the mathematical description of soft and biological matter systems, and (ii) applying advanced mathematical concepts to study relevant problems in physics and biology. Projects in the latter category involve close collaborations with experimentalists at MIT and other institutions.
Highly motivated MIT undergraduates with a strong background in mathematics, physics and/or computer science are very welcome to contact us at any time about research opportunities.
Prospective graduate students interested in joining our group are encouraged to apply through the admissions site of the MIT mathematics department.
Although we do not have direct funding for postdocs available at this time, we will be happy to help with identifying and securing external funding to support highly motivated candidates with a strong research background in applied mathematics and/or theoretical physics.
The MIT mathematics department offers a limited number of postdoctoral instructor positions within the Physical Applied Mathematics group every year. Detailed information and deadlines can be found here.
If you are interested in joining our group as a postdoc/instructor, please email a short summary of your research interests, CV and two representative publications to Jörn Dunkel.
