*2 PhD POSITIONS IN PLANT SECONDARY METABOLISM
ETH ZÜRICH, SWITZERLAND *

We are seeking engaged and highly qualified graduate students to join 
the Isoprenoid Pathway project in the Plant Biotechnology Group 
<http://www.pb.ethz.ch/> (Prof. Wilhelm Gruissem) at the ETH Zürich.

The successful candidates will study function of isozymes at the 
metabolic branchpoint in the isopreniod pathway using /Arabidopsis /as a 
model plant together with genetic dissection, functional genomics 
approaches and metabolite analysis. The project is part of the larger 
initiative in our laboratory that aims to understand cellular network of 
isoprenoid biosynthesis <http://www.pb.ethz.ch/research/isoprenoid>.

Ideal candidate should have diploma (M.Sc.) in biology, biochemistry or 
similar qualification. She or he should be interested in plant 
metabolism and its regulation and be prepared to work in a competitive 
field. Previous experience with plant molecular biology, metabolite 
analysis and functional genomics is an advantage. Advanced knowledge of 
English is expected.

We offer training in the young, dynamic and highly qualified 
international research team and access to the up to date research 
facilities.

The positions are available immediately and project is supported 
financially for three years by the ETH Zürich. If you are interested in 
these positions, please send your CV, a motivation letter and three 
names of referees by e-mail to *Dr. Eva Vranová * (evranova at ethz.ch 
<mailto:evranova at ethz.ch>), from whom further information can be obtained.
