Post-doc – Mechano-biology of microbial communities
When these forces become large they can feedback onto the physiology of the cells, for instance, by limiting the growth of the cells. The postdoc will be involved in a NIH funded research project that aims at investigating the biological underpinnings of the feedback between forces and growth, first focusing on our model system S. cerevisiae and, as a next step, tumor cell lines. A preprint on our first results is available on request.
