PhD Position in Signal Transduction during Reproductive Plant Development

 Technische Universität München  85354 Freising - Weihenstephan
A Ph.D. position in molecular plant developmental biology is available in the lab of Prof. Kay Schneitz, Dept. of Plant Developmental Biology, Technical University of Munich in Freising/Germany. The successful candidate will work on the molecular characterization of the signaling pathway mediated by the atypical  transmembrane receptor-like kinase STRUBBELIG (SUB) in Arabidopsis (1-4). The SUB pathway functionally links intercellular signaling controlled by receptor kinases and plasmodesmata, gateable channels interconnecting most plant cells, during tissue morphogenesis of for example flowers and ovules. Starting date is January 2017 but is negotiable. The lab is part of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB924 ( and thus funding comes from the German Research Council (DFG) and is at the usual TV-L E13/2 level.
