About the Project
The Goryachev group works on the interface of mathematical modelling, soft matter physics, and cell biology. The student will receive training in nonlinear dynamical systems, bifurcation theory and stability analysis. The project offers an excellent opportunity to enter modern cutting-edge research on the interface of biological and physical sciences while contributing to publications in the high-profile journals.
The research focus in the Goryachev group (http://goryachev.bio.ed.ac.uk) is on understanding biophysical mechanisms of pattern formation in biological systems via symmetry breaking. Symmetry breaking manifests itself in a variety of dazzling biological phenomena and our aim is to improve their understanding via construction of predictive mechanistic models. We are looking for motivated, enthusiastic young people with the background in physical, life, computational sciences and engineering who are passionate about research.
Several types of competitive scholarships are available for the prospective PhD students at the University of Edinburgh. Depending on the topic, allied faculty from physics, mathematics and informatics departments are available as co-supervisors.
The School of Biological Sciences is committed to Equality & Diversity: https://www.ed.ac.uk/biology/equality-and-diversity
If you would like us to consider you for one of our scholarships you must apply by 6 January 2021 at the latest.
