Are you a MSc student with an interest in plant physiology, xylem development and modelling? Are you looking for a PhD study that is not only interesting, but also challenging and multidisciplinary? Then look no further!
Interested candidates are invited to apply to join EucXylo to undertake a PhD-level degree which develops and explores approaches to using computational modelling to simulate aspects of the wood formation process (xylogenesis), or plant physiological processes that influence it.
The exact scope of the study is flexible and the research could take more than one direction. For example, agent-based or particle-based modelling could be applied to simulating the differentiation of a population of virtual xylem cells, considering neighbour status/flux in developmental signals. The final project topic will be decided in consultation between the student and the supervisory panel.
We are looking for students with a high-level of motivation and initiative who can actively drive an interesting research project, and novel proposals are very welcome.
