Doctoral Fellowships in Plant Genomics and Systems Biology IMPRS Primary Metabolism and Plant Growth


Job offer from December 21, 2012

The International Max Planck Research School “Primary Metabolism and Plant Growth” (IMPRS-PMPG) is a doctoral programme in plant genomics and systems biology at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology and the University of Potsdam. Talented graduate students are accepted into the programme at regular intervals.

Currently, we are inviting applications for

Doctoral Fellowships

to start in summer/autumn 2013.

We seek highly motivated students who can tackle scientific problems in modern plant biology. Doctoral projects will focus on systems-oriented approaches usingArabidopsis thaliana and other model plants. Our research combines molecular phenotyping (‘omics’) technologies and cutting-edge analytical techniques with bioinformatics and modelling.

We offer excellent research facilities, interdisciplinary scientific training, and a comprehensive complementary training programme. Our working language is English.

Students holding or about to obtain a Master’s or equivalent degree in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, informatics, mathematics, or related fields are encouraged to apply.
