Junior postdoc will develop, simulate and analyze computer models of growing plant roots that are steered by crosstalk from several plant hormones and other important signaling molecules. Computer models will integrate multiple levels of organization such as molecular, cell and tissue levels whereas quantitative experimental data that will feed those models will come from numerous collaborations with experimentalists within and outside of the host institution as well as from the host laboratory.</span></p>
