PhD Student Positions in Plant Science

The International Max Planck Research School "Primary Metabolism and Plant Growth" (IMPRS-PMPG) is a doctoral programme in modern plant science at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology and the University of Potsdam, close to Berlin, the multicultural capital of Germany. Doctoral students in the IMPRS-PMPG pursue their research in the groups and departments of IMPRS faculty.
The Melbourne-Potsdam PhD Programme is an initiative of the University of Melbourne, Australia, the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, and the University of Potsdam, Germany. Doctoral students in this programme have projects that are jointly supervised by group leaders in Melbourne and Potsdam, and spend time in Germany and Australia.
We are recruiting for both programmes via an integrated application procedure.
Currently, we are inviting applications for

Doctoral Positions

to start in summer/autumn 2018.

We are looking for highly motivated students who can tackle scientific problems in modern plant biology. Doctoral projects will focus on molecular, genomic and systems-oriented approaches using Arabidopsis 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 in an international environment. Our working language is English.
Highly qualified candidates holding or about to obtain an MSc or equivalent degree in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, informatics, mathematics, or related fields are encouraged to apply.
