Postdoctoral Research Associates (f/m/d) Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences CEPLAS
Published(95 days ago)
Deadline for applications(67 days ago)
The Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences CEPLAS invites applications for
15 Postdoctoral Research Associates (100 %, EG 13 TV-L/TVöD-Bund)
to be filled for three years at the participating institutions.
SMART Plants for Tomorrow's Needs
The Cluster of Excellence on Plant Sciences is a joint
unit of Heinrich Heine University Düsseldorf, University
of Cologne, Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding
Research Cologne and Forschungszentrum Jülich.
CEPLAS is developing innovative science-based
strategies for sustainable plant production. Our aim is
to mechanistically understand complex plant traits of
agronomic relevance that impact on yield and
adaptation to limited resources.
What we offer
CEPLAS creates an international, interdisciplinary
research environment. We offer a comprehensive
training program for early career researchers tailored to
your respective career level. Program components are
(scientific) training, mentoring, coaching and
networking with industry.
We are looking for
talented, highly motivated applicants with a doctoral
degree (preferably recently completed) and a strong
background in molecular plant sciences, genetics,
quantitative biology, bioinfomatics or a related
We invite applications for the following projects
(detailed descriptions on www.ceplas.eu):
The role of signaling, transport and metabolism in
developmental control of monocot meristems
Physiological and metabolic consequences of
diversification of leaf margin complexity
Apoplastic communication and metabolic fluxes in
Nutritional signals impacting immunity and symbiosis
Understanding plant-microbiota interactions using
photosynthetic microbial consortia
Quantitative analysis of signaling networks by
synthetic reconstruction in orthogonal systems
Optogenetic control and reprogramming of leaf
Regulation of C-resource allocation to various
Nutrient exchange between plant and microbes
Comprehensive and efficient identification of genomic
differences from whole-genome alignments
Multiscale models of plant-microbiota interactions
Mathematical models of resource allocation in
plant metabolism and development
The place of employment is defined by the respective
research project. According to the applicant's personal
qualification and the institution, employment will be
based on salary group 13 TV-L/13 TVöD-Bund.
Qualified candidates should send their application
(cover letter, curriculum vitae, contact info of two
references, transcripts) by indicating the number
