PhD position Plant Biochemistry 2011 at The Leibniz-Institute Germany

We are looking for a highly motivated new team member interested in elucidating the roles of ubiquitination in the regulation of immunity in plants. Directions of research will focus on the ubiquitination of protein complexes involved in exocytosis as a regulatory mechanism of defense
responses. The successful applicant will conduct studies in vitro and in plant models using a wide range technologies in cell biology, molecular biology, biochemistry, histology as well as confocal and two-photon imaging.

Applicants should hold an excellent university degree in biology or biochemistry and have good command of the English language. Experience in plant-microbe interaction assays and/or protein biochemistry and cell biology is desired, but not essential.

We offer a stimulating scientific environment in young lab with state of the art equipment, as well as, an international and collaborative research team.

The PhD position is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinsch aft (DFG) within the SPP1212 with a contract according to the German Public Sector Agreement (TV-L; 50% E13).
