This job ad is out of date. Find related Jobs here.

A PhD fellowship is available from 15th of April 2015 to 15th of April 2018 at the Goethe-University Frankfurt, Department of Biological Sciences (Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre, BiK-F). The position is framed within the LOEWE excellence cluster "Integrative Fungal Research (IPF)". The cluster includes researchers in mycology at four universities in Germany and the Senckenberg Society. The aim of the cluster is to synergistically tie together the basic research areas of biodiversity research, molecular genetics, and genomics with translational research in biochemistry and biotechnology. Thus, the research cluster is an ideal environment for scientific development and profiling.
We are looking for a motivated and creative candidate who will be working on the field of molecular genetic analysis of basidiocarp morphogenesis with a potential new model basidiomycete combining advantageous features from established agaricomycete models. More specifically, the project will focus both on the development of state-of-the-art tools for gene targeting for the new model and on the analysis of basidiocarp morphogenesis applying methodology from throughout the IPF research cluster. 
The applicants should hold a MSc degree (or equivalent) in biology or related fields. We expect good written and oral communication skills in English. We offer a PhD fellowship, comprising a monthly allowance of 1,400 € for 3 years.
