PhD position in Plant Biology

The Chemical Signalling Group at the Faculty of Agriculture, University of Bonn invites applications for a
PhD position in Plant Biology
The goal of the project will be investigating
Regulation of Oxidative Protein Folding through Thiol Switching.
Protein sensors, state-of-the-art in vivo imaging and proteomics will be used in folding-deficient mutants of the model plant Arabidopsis and yeast. For further background on the project and the tools to be applied see Meyer et al. (2007) Plant Journal 52(5), 973-986; Gutscher et al. (2008) Nature Methods 5(6), 553-559; Aller and Meyer (2013) Protoplasma 250(4),799–816, Aller et al., (2013) Frontiers in Plant Science 4: 506 or contact us directly (isabel.aller@uni-bonn.de or andreas.meyer@uni-bonn.de).
We offer an exciting and dynamic research environment, a newly-equipped lab, a friendly and experienced team with excellent international connections and dedicated training in the relevant techniques and skills to the highest standard. Salary and benefits are paid at TV-L 13 (part-time) (German public services tariff).
We look for a highly motivated PhD candidate with interest in plant science and redox biology. Practical experience in molecular biology, biochemistry or imaging will be of benefit. The applicant should hold a Masters degree (or equivalent) in Biology or another relevant subject such as Biochemistry, Agriculture, Chemistry or Physics. Excellent language skills in either English or German are required.
