PhD position on plant hormone research in Berlin

=46ree University of Berlin (Germany), laboratories of Prof. Thomas 
Schm=FClling and the Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics, Dept. 
Prof. Lehrach, Berlin

A doctoral fellowship funded by the German Research Council (DFG)
is immediately available at the Free University of Berlin, Institute 
of Biology / Applied Genetics in a close collaboration with the 
Max-Planck-Institute for Molecular Genetics, Dept. Prof. Lehrach, 
Berlin. The successful applicant will work in a research team 
studying genetic, molecular and physiological aspects of cytokinin 
biology in Arabidopsis. Our research topic covers in a functional 
genomics approach the investigation of cytokinin metabolism and 
signaling using high-throughput yeast two hybrid analyses, T-DNA 
tagged mutants, overexpressing transgenic lines, reporter gene 
studies and physiological investigations of growth and nutrient 
allocation. Please see our recent publications for further 
informations: Werner et al., PNAS 98, 10487-10492, 2001; Schmulling, 
Trends Plant Sci. 6, 281-284, 2001; Frank et al., Plant J. 29, 73-85, 
2002, Kersten et al. 48, 133-141, 2002 or take a look at our previous 
homepage: (new 
page is under construction). Candidates should have a diploma or 
equivalent in genetics, plant physiology, biochemistry or molecular 
biology; experience in the plant sciences and/or yeast molecular 
biology is advantageous. Compensation is according to the German BAT 
IIa/2 salary.  Applications, including CV, names and addresses of two 
references, should be addressed to Prof. Thomas Schm=FClling, FU 
Berlin, Institute of Biology, Applied Genetics, Albrecht-Thaer-Weg 6,
