Two PhD positions (BAT-O IIa/2) are available at the
Institute of Plant Physiology, University Halle-Wittenberg, Germany

Positions are available immediately to study the function of two
receptor families in chloroplast protein import in Arabidopsis. To
determine substrate specificities of the different receptors, transgenic
lines (Plant J. 23, 771-783) and mutant lines will be analysed on the
protein level (e.g. 2D gels), the RNA level (e.g. RT-PCR, microarrays)
as well as with physiological methods (e.g. chlorophyll fluorescence).
For a functional analysis, receptor constructs will be used in in vivo
(complementation of mutant lines) and in vitro studies (protein
interaction studies). The project is part of the Sonderforschungsbereich
SFB 363 funded by the DFG for three years. It offers good training
opportunities in a young group and an excellent research environment
that is stimulated by the interaction with the other groups in the SFB.
Candidates should hold a Masters, Diploma or a comparable degree in
biology or biochemistry and have broad knowledge in molecular biology,
biochemistry and/or plant physiology.
Applications including CV, letter of research experience/training,
certificates and references should be sent to:
