The research unit “Morphodynamics of Plants” is a multi-disciplinary consortium of 9 groups (biologists, physicists, computer scientists) located in Munich/Freising, Heidelberg, Cologne, and Göttingen that want to understand how exactly plants form their organs (root, ovules, leaves, etc). Data will be produced in the form of 3D+time microscopy images that must be quantitatively analyzed and combined with results from modeling. Major software packages involved are MorphoGraphX and ilastik.
The successful candidate will combine genetic, cell biological and computational approaches to generate a hitherto unprecedented quantitative description of the cellular and mechanical basis of the development of ovules, the major female reproductive organs. Focus resides on integument morphogenesis and ovule curvature. Starting date is July 2017 but is negotiable. Funding is at the usual TV-L E13/2 level.
We are looking for a highly-motivated scientist trained in molecular and cell biology and/or biophysics with a strong interest in interdisciplinary work at the interface of bioinformatics, advanced confocal microscopy, image processing, 3D computer visualization, modelling, and cell and developmental genetics. The person should have good problem-solving skills and be able to work independently. Fluency in English is a must. Programming skills (e.g., Python, R) are a plus.
Please submit your application as a single PDF file by email to email@example.com. TUM is an equal opportunity employer. Applicants with
disabilities are treated with preference given comparable qualifications.
