The following position will be filled for the first time in the winter semester 2017/2018:
FULL PROFESSOR (W3)
at the Institute of Plant Breeding, Seed Science and Population Genetics.
OF QUANTITATIVE CROP GENETICS AND
GENOMICS OF CROPS
The successful candidate will teach Quantitative Genetics and Genomics of Crops and its application in plant breeding in the study programs Crop Sciences, Environmental Protection and Agricultural Food Production, and Agricultural Sciences in the Tropics and Subtropics both in German and in English.
The successful candidate is expected to conduct innovative research in the investigation and modeling of quantitative genetic variation with a focus on crops. Possible research topics include geno-type x environment interactions and yield stability, adaptation to different forms of biotic and abiotic stress, cultivation under low vs. high-input regimes or the quantitative genetics of yield components. Methodological approaches should combine current statistical and quantitative genetics approaches with genome analysis technologies, and/ or phenotyping in laboratory experiments or field trials. The successful candidate is expected to cooperate with other groups as well with the interdisciplinary research centers of the University of Hohenheim and to participate in 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 Max-Planck-Institute of Developmental Biology.
