Postdoc Position: fruit modeling
INRA Avignon, France
The proposal is part of a research project (Interfaces) which deals with the
interface between raw material production and processing. The post-doctorate
will have to improve the understanding of fruit quality build-up from the raw
material to the processed product (i.e., from the pre-harvest stage in the
field to fruit storage and processing stages).
He/she will focus on two specific points: macronutrients (sugars and acids) and
structural material (as relevant for texture), and consider their control by
climatic conditions and agronomical and processing factors. The impact of
practices, maturity and storage (temperature and/or duration effect), and
process, on the availability of carbon and water and on the mechanical and
chemical properties of cells and cell wall, will be looked upon.
The approach will be based on modelling. The post-doctorate will first
contribute to deliver an agro-ecophysiological model of fresh apple fruit based
on an existing virtual fruit model (Fishman and Génard, 1998; Génard et al.,
2010). The model will predict growth and the accumulation of macronutrients and
The post-doctorate will parameterize and test the model during the pre-harvest
phase. With such a model it will become possible to simulate the allocation of
assimilates and water to the fruit and to predict the effect of environment and
management on fruit quality at harvest. The model will also be adapted and
tested for its ability to predict the evolution of apple fruit quality during
the post-harvest storage period. A focus will be on the impact of storage
conditions (mostly storage duration) on the evolution of maturity and quality
traits after harvest and prior to processing. The post-harvest model for fruit
storage will focus on changes in water balance, turgor pressure, cell adhesion,
starch degradation and acids metabolism.
This agro-ecophysiological model of fresh apple fruit will be then connected to
a product processing model relying the characteristics of processed apples to
those of fresh apple. This product processing model will be done by another
team involved in the interface project.
Finally, the modeling framework will be used to find in silico the orchard
management practices and the fruit storage – ripening conditions that optimise
quality criteria of interest for processed apple fruits.
The postdoctoral scientist will benefit from a strong scientific background of
the host institution in plant sciences, in particular crop ecophysiology. He/
she will have access to a computing cluster for intensive calculation used for
He/she will have access to continuing training, scientific and technical
information, editorial online resources, as well as all scientific computing
tools of INRA. He/she will benefit from the social policies of the Institute in
the enjoyable campus of Avignon. Scientists at Avignon campus have access to a
broader science environment, conducive to cross disciplinary research.
We are looking for a self-motivated individual with strong communication and
organization skills, who will have completed a Ph.D. thesis in Plant Sciences,
Information Sciences, Agronomy or Horticulture, with an experience in modeling
and a publication record. Knowledge of programming languages (Java, Python, C+
+,…) and experience in statistical tools (R) will be an asset. Ability to
communicate in English both orally and in writing is essential.

Postdoc Position: G-protein Signaling
UNC Medical School
The University of North Carolina, Schools of Medicine and Arts and
Sciences Heterotrimeric G proteins serve as a signaling nexus in a
myriad of normal and diseased cell states. Many extracellular signals
(e.g. hormones, peptides, cytokines, lights) are perceived by 7-
transmembrane receptors, often referred to as G protein coupled
receptors, that stimulate the activation state of the cytoplasmic G
protein complex. Interestingly, the majority of non-animal cells
(protists, fungi, plants, amoeba and many others) bind GTP without
the need for a GPCR. This recent discovery opens up new opportunities
to find novel mechanisms that regulate G protein signaling. This
project tightly integrates experimental investigations with
mathematical modeling to discover and characterize novel signaling
motifs that regulate pathway activity in the glucose sensing system
of Arabidopsis. The project is a continuation of a well established
collaboration between the labs of Drs. Alan Jones and Tim Elston
(Fu, et al 2014 Cell 156:1084-1095). The ideal applicant will have
experience with deterministic and stochastic modeling methods, and a
willingness to learn the experimental techniques needed to test their
mathematical models. Interested individuals should contact Tim Elston
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and Alan Jones (email@example.com).
Position: Math Neuroscience,
The Neural Dynamics and Neural Engineering Lab at Virginia Tech has
an opening for a post-doctoral position in mathematical neuroscience.
This position is for three years and is being funded by the Army
Research Office (ARO). The research project will involve employing
biophysically based computational models to examine the role of
rhythmic activity in the expression of emotional memories during
behavior and their consolidation during sleep. An additional aim is
to employ the newly developed models to gain insight into the
pathophysiology of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Our lab investigates neural dynamics during active behavior and during
off-line states, such as sleep, using a combination of computational
modeling, signal processing techniques, and both invasive and non-
invasive techniques for recording neural activity. The basic science
knowledge gathered from these investigations is leveraged to
understand how memories are instantiated in the brain, to gain insight
into how learning occurs during brain machine interface (BMI) tasks,
to improve BMI algorithms, and to develop the framework for
stimulation and pharmacological therapies for diseases, especially
those marked by abnormal neural dynamics during sleep (e.g., post-
traumatic sleep disorder (PTSD) and Parkinson’s disease).

Improving our understanding of human atrial ionic mechanisms of
arrhythmogenesis (Postdoc position and funded PhD opportunities
About the project: Atrial fibrillation (AF), characterized by rapid or
irregular electrical activity in the upper chambers of the heart, is
the most common heart rhythm disturbance. AF is associated with
substantial morbidity and mortality. Anti-arrhythmic drug therapy is
a frontline treatment for AF by targeting specific ionic channels with
variable success rates due to our incomplete understanding of the
basic mechanisms of atrial cellular behaviours in patients under
normal and diseased conditions. Computer activation models provide a
powerful framework for investigating exact mechanisms behind AF and
testing effectiveness of proposed novel treatment strategies by
providing a flexible way to dissect highly intertwined contributing
factors and set up series of control studies.
The potential projects for one Postdoc and couple of PhD students are
1) To develop biophysics-based human atrial cellular models to
understand the pathophysiology of AF associated with gene mutations
and to identify a potential effective, targeted treatment;
2) To develop biophysics-based human sino-atrial node (SAN) models to
determine the contribution of heart-failure induced structural and
molecular substrates to SAN dysfunction, and potential targeted
3) To develop biophysics-based human atrial cellular models to
understand the precise ionic mechanism of new-onset AF under diabetic
conditions and to identify a potential upstream therapy.
