The Department of Plant Cell Biology at the Schwann-Schleiden Research Center for Molecular Cell Biology,
University of Göttingen offers two
 
PhD positions in
Improvement of the pathogen response of poplar
by modification of receptor kinases
 
The positions are funded by the BMBF in the frame of the initiative "Plant Breeding Research for the Bioeconomy" under the National Research Strategy BioEconomy 2030. The salary is according to the German pay scale (EG 13 TV-L (50%). We are looking to fill the position at the earliest possible date.
 
The department headed by Prof. Volker Lipka is interested in the molecular dissection of plant pathogen response mechanisms (e.g. Petutschnig et al ., 2010, J. Biol. Chem. 285(37):28902-11; Petutschnig et al ., 2014, New Phytol. 204(4):955-67). The planned project is at the interface between basic and applied research and is carried out in cooperation with two partner institutes. The aim is to improve the characteristics of poplar for the production of bioenergy in short rotation plantations (Polle et al. 2013, Appl. Microbiol. Biotechnol. 97, 5669-79).
We are looking for two highly motivated new team members interested in elucidating the role of LysM receptor like kinases in the resistance of poplar against the poplar rust Melampsora larici-populina .
 
The successful applicants will conduct experiments using a wide range of methods in biochemistry and cell biology such as pathogen infection experiments, molecular cloning and mutagenesis, plant transformation, biochemical techniques for characterization of proteins and cell biological methods such as confocal laser scanning microscopy. In addition, successful candidates will have the chance to participate in "soft skills" training activities and establish contact with industry mentors (with the organization and support of the PLANT 2030 managing office).
Applicants are expected to hold a very good Master/Diploma degree in Biology or Biochemistry, be highly motivated and to show a strong interest in plant biology. Proficiency in spoken and written English is essential. Basic experience in plant molecular biology and in vitro culture of plants is a plus. Applicants should submit a letter of motivation, a resume with publication list, and names and addresses of three references.
 
We offer a stimulating scientific environment in a lab with state of the art equipment, as well as an international and collaborative research team. Our lab is located within the Schwann-Schleiden Research Center for Molecular Cell Biology at the North Campus of Göttingen University.
The University of Göttingen is an equal opportunities employer and places particular emphasis on fostering career opportunities for women. Qualified women are therefore strongly encouraged to apply in fields in which they are underrepresented. The university has committed itself to being a family-friendly institution and supports their employees in balancing work and family life. Disabled persons with equivalent aptitude for the position will be favored.
