The Department of the Director Prof Miltos Tsiantis is looking for early stage researchers to employ at the Ph.D. and Post Doc level in the areas of plant development, morphogenesis and evolution (http://www.mpipz.mpg.de/226344/tsiantis-dpt).
Ph. D. candidates should have an M. Sc in appropriate discipline (Plant biology, Developmental biology, Computer Science, Genetics, Biochemistry, Statistical, Evolutionary or Population Genetics). Post Doc candidates typically will have obtained a Ph.D. degree no more than two years ago.
Ideal candidates will have shown evidence for working towards academic excellence, creativity, strong communication skills both orally and on paper and ability to work independently and harmoniously as part of a team. The Department also has a number of active international collaborations in which students will be encouraged to participate.
The positions are available at either PhD and Post Doc level and appointments will depend on the merit of interested candidates. Payment and benefits will depend on age and experience and will be according to the German TVöD scale.
Areas of research:
The interplay between growth and patterning in shaping organ form
Morphogenesis, pattern formation, growth and form, leaf development, live imaging, computational modelling
Natural variation of developmental traits in Cardamine hirsuta
Genetics, bioinformatics, local adaptation, ecology and evolution
Genetic Networks shaping leaf development in angiosperm plants
Transcriptional enhancers in development and diversity, plant homeobox genes, genome editing
Interested candidates should provide a motivation letter explaining how their skills and interests fit the areas above. Please, apply by sending a combined pdf document (your_name_PhD or PostDoc.pdf) including your motivation letter and CV, to Dr. Ismene Karakasilioti (firstname.lastname@example.org), until 17 September 2019. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered. Only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
