Post-doctoral position in the Tsiantis lab, MPIPZ, at the interphase of development and metabolic physiology

Posted by , on 28 June 2019

Closing Date: 15 March 2021

We have previously characterized processes underlying diversity in leaf form between and within species and have identified genetic pathways influencing this trait. Here, we propose to investigate the possible physiological and metabolic significance of this variation, as well as possible feedbacks between metabolism and leaf form. The project will involve comparative studies of Cardamine hirsuta and Arabidopsis thaliana. References: Kierzkowski, D, Runions, A, et al., (2019) Cell 177, 1405-1418.
