Subjects / Tools-Methodologies
1 : statistical physics/analytic -numerical simulations
2 : ecology - metapopulations/The LCVN (Laboratoire des Verres, Colloides et Nanomateriaux) is a large physics laboratory, with experimental groups working on nanomaterials and soft condensed matter. The theory group has a wide interest in out-of-equilibrium systems, including glasses, gels, foams, proteins. Several collaborations with biologists have started and the need and interest for such collaborations grow rapidly: they include studies of molecular transport, genetic networks, ecology and evolution dynamics.
3 : analytic -numerical simulations/Public†: students in a Physics master, with a good knowledge in statistical physics. Interest and background in both physics and biology, or physics and complex systems are particularly encouraged.
