We always seek curious, motivated students/post-docs to join our interdisciplinary team. Candidates will preferably have a background in Physics, Biophysics, Informatics, Mathematics or Engineering. Biology students interested in computational modelling or biophysics are also welcomed to apply. Research projects in the lab involve at least one of the following techniques:
- 3D image analysis of growing cells 
- force measurements in living cells  and organs 
- mechanical modeling of cells and tissues [4,5]
- “MorphoGraphX: A platform for quantifying morphogenesis in 4D.” Elife (2015)
- “Cellular force microscopy for in vivo measurements of plant tissue mechanics.” Plant physiology (2012)
- “Morphomechanical innovation drives explosive seed dispersal.” Cell (2016)
- “Why plants make puzzle cells, and how their shape emerges.” Elife (2018)
- “Cellular basis of growth in plants: geometry matters.” Current opinion in plant biology (2019)
Please always provide a motivation letter, CV, publication list and grades records with your application. If no core funding is available at the time, please consider applying for the following grants.
We encourage students and post-docs from under-represented groups to apply.
Thank you to all the applicants. If you are interested in joining the lab, please consider applying for an individual grant. You can send me a complete application by email (Motivation letter – including research interests and potential project you would like to work on, CV, Publication list, Grades, Contact information for 3 referees).
We are seeking motivated candidates to join our group and investigate the physical properties of growing cells, tissues and organs using computational modeling and 3D image analysis. A background in Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics or Biophysics is required. Funding is provided for 2 years, possibility to extend with additional funds. Please send your candidature to al(dot)routier(at)umontreal(dot)ca complete with:
- motivation letter
- list of publications
- email addresses of 3 referees
