Two PhD Scholarship Positions Plant Cell and Molecular Biology

Applications are invited for a PhD position in bioinformatics to join Technical University of Munich. Applications will be evaluated immediately.

Two funded Ph.D. student positions are available at the Chair of Plant Systems Biology at the Life Sciences campus of the Technische Universitt Mnchen in Freising-Weihenstephan.

- Auxin transport regulation through polarly localized protein kinases

- Gibberellin transport and transporters in seed germination

We are seeking two highly motivated Ph.D. students to strengthen our highly interactive and collaborative team. The specific projects integrate molecular biological, developmental and systems biology approaches to understand the molecular determinants of plant growth by phytohormones.

The laboratory has expertise in a broad range of molecular, cell biological, biochemical and genetic techniques as exemplified in our previous publications.

The Chair of Plant Systems Biology has direct access to modern cell biological and biochemical analyses, next generation sequencing etc. and possesses all techniques and equipment required for state-of-the-art plant research. The laboratory also has strong ties with the LMU Munich, the University of Regensburg and the Plant Bioinformatics Institute at the Helmholtz Zentrum Mnchen through the SFB924.

Please send a letter of motivation and a CV to:

The position is available immediately and will remain open until filled.
