Multi-cellular organisms rely on a robust network of temporal and spatial coordinates to guide the development from a single cell during embryogenesis. Various species have evolved different strategies to obtain such information from external and internal cues. At present, little is known about how higher plants establish cell polarity during embryogenesis.

In our research group we are studying molecular signaling pathways that guide embryonic patterning in the model organism Arabidopsis thaliana. We are focusing on sperm-derived factors that link the onset of embryogenesis with the fertilization event.

For molecular characterization of candidate genes we are looking for a highly motivated Ph.D. student. The candidate needs to hold a diploma or masters degree in biology or related fields. Applicants are expected to have a broad knowledge in molecular biology and/or genetics. Experience in plant research is a plus but not mandatory. Candidates should be highly motivated and interested in basic research.

We are offering a scientifically stimulating surrounding and an enjoyable lab atmosphere in a highly interactive international team.
Salary is based on German BAT IIa/E 13 (50%).

Applications should include CV and names and contact information of two references.
