Prokaryotic growth can be modulated in different ways, including temperature, antibiotics, toxins, nutrients, and osmolarity. While the effects of nutrients have been extensively characterized, a common modulation of bacterial growth occurs in response to changes in external osmolarity, and it remains poorly understood. We hypothesize that the osmotically induced growth slowdown can be explained by examining several physiological variables and the successful applicant will measure them using both single-cell microscopy and microbiology population assays. She/he will integrate the results with a mathematical model as well. The post holder will also have the opportunity to investigate long term survival of bacterial cells at high osmolarities.
