Three DFG-funded Ph.D. student positions are available at the Chair of Plant Systems Biology at the Life Sciences
campus of the Technische Universität München in Freising-Weihenstephan.
• Cell biology of auxin transport control by regulatory protein kinases
• Control of Arabidopsis development by GATA transcription factors
• Genome-wide identification of target genes of GATA transcription factors
We are seeking three highly motivated Ph.D. students to strengthen our highly interactive and collaborative team.
The specific projects integrate cell biological, developmental and systems biology approaches to understand the molecular determinants of plant growth control by AGC protein kinases and GATA transcription factors. The laboratory has expertise in a broad range of cell biological, biochemical and molecular genetic techniques as exemplified in our previous publications.
The Chair of Plant Systems Biology has direct access to state of the art technology for cell biological and biochemical analysis, next generation sequencing etc. and possesses all techniques and equipment required for state-ofthe- 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 München.
The positions will remain open until filled.
