PhD position in Molecular Plant Physiology: Phytochrome cytoplasmic signalling in Physcomitrella and Arabidopsis

A PhD position (E13 50%) is available initially for two years with the likelihood of extension for a further year for research into phytochrome signalling.

Phytochromes are photoreceptor molecules with two stable ground states interconverted by red and far-red light. In plants they mediate light-dependent development, the largest environmental effect on morphogenesis known in nature. We have identified a phytochrome interaction likely to be at the heart of a cytoplasmic signalling system whose existence had long been suspected but whose nature was unknown [see Jaedicke et al. (2012) PNAS; Hughes (2013) Ann. Rev. Pl. Biol.].

We use fluorescence-based cell biological techniques, molecular genetics including genome editing as well as biochemical and biophysical methods for investigating this system.
