Protein kinases and auxin transport

A funded postdoc position is available at the Chair of Plant Systems Biology at the School of Life Scienes of the Technische Universität München in Freising-Weihenstephan. We seek a highly motivated Ph.D. student to strengthen our highly interactive and collaborative team. The project will integrate biochemistry, live-cell imaging, developmental and molecular biology ap-proaches to understand the molecular mechanisms of plant growth and development. The ideal ap-plicant will have a strong interest in biochemistry and cell biology and has a background in plant biol-ogy or developmental biology.

The Chair of Plant Systems Biology has expertise in a broad spectrum of molecular, cell biological, biochemical and genetic techniques, as well as confocal microscopy. Therefor the laboratory has access to all techniques and equipment required to do state-of-the-art plant research. The group also has strong ties with the LMU Munich, the University of Regensburg and the Plant Bioinformatics Insti-tute at the Helmholtz Zentrum München through the SFB924.
