We are a group of professors, postdocs, and students working on or interested in physics of "soft" materials including biological systems. Many of our members have a fluid boundary and diverse interests in their research, from pure statistical mechanics (both numerical and analytical) to theoretical/experimental biological physics (from DNA to membranes)
We have meetings/seminars approximately once a week, at which people from SFU or invited speakers from other groups give talks on their research. If you want to receive a seminar notice, please contact us so your e-mail can be added to our list. This list has a very low traffic of about one message per week (namely the abstract of the upcoming talk) at most.
Frontiers in Biophysics is a conference that creates and strengthens connections between multidisciplinary researchers at local institutions who are interested in modeling problems in cellular and molecular biology, single molecule studies, networks of interacting biomolecules, and whole cell approaches to biophysics.
Frontiers in Biophysics intends to broaden horizons and inspire students and researchers by immersing them in a dynamic and active environment. It encourages and emphasizes discussion and communication between participants with mathematic, physics, computing science and biology backgrounds.

The Physics Department at Simon Fraser University invites applications for a tenure track position in theoretical physics. We are searching for an individual of outstanding promise who will develop a high-profile externally funded research program in an area of soft matter physics and/or biological physics and who will participate in the undergraduate and graduate teaching program of the Department. She or he will join and further strengthen an already very strong experimental and theoretical research group working in these areas and, more generally, one of the strongest condensed matter physics groups in Canada. The projected start date is September 1, 2014, subject to final budgetary approval. The position is targeted at applicants at the rank of Assistant Professor; exceptional candidates may be considered for nomination under the Canada Research Chairs program* at the Tier 2 level.
