PhD Studentship in Computational Modeling of Auxin Dynamics, Ghent University, Belgium

The department plant systems biology at Ghent University, Belgium has an opening for an ambitious and energetic research assistant in the new research group Plant Systems Modeling, that focuses on computational modeling of plant development biology.

You will be building and analyzing dynamical models of lateral root initiation, in close collaboration with molecular biologists in the research group Root Development headed by Dr. Tom Beeckman.


For this project that leads to a Ph.D dissertation, Ghent University is looking for a motivated MSc in Biology or Biotechnology with interest and affinity for mathematics and computer science, or an MSc in physics, applied mathematics or computer science with interest and affinity for biology.

Programming experience (C++ or similar) and experience in biological modeling are a big plus.

This project gives you the opportunity to get a Ph.D in systems biology, in an energetic, international, multi-disciplinary environment.

Funding is for four years, but you are encouraged to apply for external funds.
