The following position will be filled for the first time in the winter semester 2017/2018:
at the Institute of Crop Sciences.
(W1 WITH TENURE TRACK)
OF PHYSIOLOGY OF YIELD STABILITY
The successful candidate will teach physiology of yield stability of crops and the application of pertinent molecular methodologies in breeding and agronomy in the study programs of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at the Bachelor and Master level both in German and in English.
The research focus should be on modern molecular tools in the breeding of crops and their relevance for cultivation. We are looking for a candidate who combines physiological and -omics-based high-throughput and molecular genetic techniques such as genome editing technology, and who will advance their use in crop research. The molecular and physiological basis of yield stability should be investigated on the basis of systemoriented or hypothesis-driven research - preferably on crops and breeding material -, e.g. under abiotic or biotic stresses.
The successful candiate is expected to contribute to the Regional Research Alliance „Yield Stability in Dynamic Environments“, which is a network of plant researchers at the University of Hohenheim, the University of Tübingen and the MPI of Developmental Biology Tübingen. Cooperation with other groups as well with the interdisciplinary research centers of the University of Hohenheim is envisioned. In addition to laboratory experiments and green house trials, the Experimental Station of the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences at the University of Hohenheim makes it possible to carry out extensive field trials.
