Cell Mechanics Postdoc Position Available in the Franck Lab at Wisconsin

Postdoc Position Available in the Franck Lab


Effective Sept 1, I am looking to fill 1-2 postdoc position in the general area of 3D cell mechanics. 

Candidates should have a strong background in solid mechanics, preferably experimental, with an interest in learning innovative techniques in experimental mechanics including digital volume correlation, 3D Traction Force Microscopy, 3D confocal, multiphoton and Super resolution imaging. 



Postdoctoral position in Experimental Mechanics in the Franck Lab at Brown University

There is an opening for a post-doctoral position in Prof. Christian Franck's group (Franck Lab) starting January/February 2017 (exact dates are flexible). The scope of the particular research project entails development of new 2, and 3D soft matter cavitation experiments using high-speed imaging, and digital image (volume) correlation techniques along with image reconstruction (and potentially interferometry) techniques.



1) Ph.D. in mechanics, or applied physics. 

Open Post-Doc Position in Cell Mechanics at Brown University

A unique postdoctoral fellow position that bridges biophysics (biomechanics) with host defense is available in the Department of Surgery and the School of Engineering at Brown University. The successful applicant will investigate the role of dimension and other mechanical regulators on the function of human and murine neutrophils. The applicant will have earned a Ph.D. in physics, engineering or applied math but is interested bridging these disciplines with techniques in cell biology and live cell imaging to study leukocyte migration and immune function (Toyjanova et al., J.Biol.

Journal Club Theme of March 2014: 3D Experimental Measurements in Soft Materials

3D Experimental Measurements in Soft Materials - from measuring cell displacement fields to complex hierarchical material deformations and beyond

The Why? - Why do we need 3D material deformation measurement?

Matlab-based Digital Image and Volume Correlation Simulators


I just posted a Matlab-GUI easy-to-use DIC and DVC simulator tool on our website ( for download for anyone that works with DIC or DVC. The purpose of these simulators is to simulate deformation fields based on a user provided image (2D) or volume (3D), and evaluate the correlation results with the analytical solutions to provide quantitative feedback on the "goodness" of the provided images for DIC or DVC purposes.

Feel free to use them for research, teaching, etc. We welcome any suggestions for improvements, etc.
