PhD Student Positions at PhD Programme in Plant Science
IMPRS Primary Metabolism and Plant Growth,
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. Talented graduate students are accepted into the programme at regular intervals.
Currently, we are inviting applications for
to start in summer/autumn 2017.
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.
The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam, near Berlin, is one of the largest plant
research centres in Europe. The IMPRS-PMPG is embedded in a vibrant research community with more than 100 doctoral students under the guidance of our faculty, their groups, and departments. The Science Park
Potsdam-Golm hosts three Max Planck Institutes, two Fraunhofer Institutes, the University of Potsdam, and a centre for start-up companies, providing an excellent infrastructure for modern cross-disciplinary training.
Potsdam is only a stone‘s throw away from Berlin, the multicultural capital of Germany.
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.
Closing date for application is January 8, 2017.
