Applications are invited for a Research Assistant position in the group of Professor Henrik Jnsson at the Sainsbury Laboratory Cambridge University, to carry out fundamental research in the field of Computational Morphodynamics in plants. The project will focus on theoretical modelling of cell polarity in plant cells. The models will be used to predict hormonal inputs and dynamics of membrane proteins with a special focus on how cell polarity in PIN proteins can be achieved.

Applicants must have an MPhil in computational biology, physics, applied mathematics, computer science, engineering or related field. Proficiency in modelling biochemical interaction and transport reactions is required and experience in differential equation and stochastic models is . Candidates must have knowledge in systems biology modelling and experience in the following areas: modelling of biological systems, C++ and python software development. The successful candidate will be fully involved in the basic research in these areas whilst also writing up their research work for presentation and publication. Good communication skills are essential as the post holder will need to work well in a team and collaborate with other researchers in the Institute, in particular with experimental collaborators.
