Dear all,

a PhD position is offered in the group of Thomas Greb, University of 
Heidelberg, Germany. The PhD student will employ a combination of 
computational modelling, informative tissue marker lines, mutants 
affected in cambium activity and Brillouin spectroscopy to establish a 
quantitative model of lateral plant growth taking into consideration 
both physical and developmental constraints. Importantly, the power of 
the established models to predict the role of decisive parameters will 
be tested by quantitatively comparing lateral growth in Arabidopsis 
thaliana and Cardamine hirsuta. In case of being instructive, 
predictions made by the model will be tested molecularly in comparative 
approaches. Following this strategy, the student will provide insight 
into the cellular, genetic, and physical cues that are involved in the 
regulation of the growth of mature plant organs using a rather simple 
morphodynamic system.
