Postdoctoral position at the GMI
A two-year postdoctoral position (with the possibility of extension)
studying the epigenetic control of cell fate during vascular development
in Arabidopsis is available in the group of Dr. Thomas Greb at the
Gregor Mendel Institute (GMI), Vienna, Austria. The earliest start date
is September 2007.
Our recently established group uses vascular tissue development in
as an example for cell specification and tissue formation in higher
We seek to understand the molecular mechanisms regulating the
and maintenance of specific gene expression profiles in the highly
repertoire of cell types within the vascular tissue. Our group is
the newly founded GMI, which provides a stimulating research atmosphere
in the attractive scientific environment of the Vienna Biocenter. For
information about our group and the GMI, please consult:
Successful applicants should be highly motivated, be capable of working
independently, be prepared to assume responsibilities for co-workers and
a relevant PhD. Experience in some or all of the following disciplines
desirable: plant development, genetics, molecular biology and/or
Please send your application including a cover letter describing your
CV and contact details of two referees by 1st August to Dr. Thomas Greb,
GMI - Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology GmbH, Dr.
1030 Vienna, Austria or by e-mail: thomas.greb from gmi.oeaw.ac.at. I will
