Teaching & PhD



PhD Programs

Doctoral Program in Physics

Doctoral Program in Biotechnology and Bioengineering

Doctoral Program in Computational and Quantitative Biology


Analytical mechanics (for SPH)

Introduction to the methods of classical mechanics (Lagrange and Hamilton equations) and to the concepts of normal modes and stability.

Biophysics : physics of the cell

In this course we will study the cell (minimum unit of life) and its components. We will study several key cellular features: Membranes, genomes, channels and receptors. We will apply the laws of physics to develop models to make quantitative and predictive statements.

Statistical physics of biomacromolecules

Introduction to the application of the notions and methods of theoretical physics to problems in biology.

Lecture series on scientific machine learning

This lecture presents ongoing work on how scientific questions can be tackled using machine learning. Machine learning enables extracting knowledge from data computationally and in an automatized way. We will learn on examples how this is influencing the very scientific method.
