TWO THREE-YEAR POSTDOC POSITIONS AT THE INTERFACE OF MATHEMATICAL MODELLING AND DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY
We are seeking to hire two talented and creative researchers to take part in a highly interdisciplinary project in quantitative developmental biology. The overall aim of the project is to understand how developing embryos can self-organize into complex structures via mechanisms that are remarkably robust to changes in tissue geometry and overall embryo size. Our approach is to develop sophisticated mathematical models – informed by high resolution imaging data – to understand this counterintuitive “size-invariance” phenomenon. The two postdocs will be part of a multi-disciplinary collaboration led by Tom Hiscock at the University of Aberdeen and Ben Steventon at the University of Cambridge, and will have the opportunity to interact closely with both institutes and research groups.
If you are a computational biologist / mathematician / physicist / expert in dynamical systems or PDEs and are interested in applying your theoretical skills to a fundamental question in developmental biology – whilst also learning to exploit cutting edge high-resolution imaging data – then please check out the following link below:
