We are seeking students who are highly motivated to tackle scientific problems in modern plant biology. We offer cutting-edge interdisciplinary training spanning genetics, genomics, physiology, high-end analytical techniques, and bioinformatics.
Doctoral studies will focus on systems-oriented approaches using the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana with an emphasis on molecular phenotyping ('omics') technologies, data integration, and modelling. Individual career development plans will be configured with the students.
The IMPRS-PMPG is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology and the University of Potsdam with internationally renowned faculty, strong research groups, and vibrant doctoral students. The entire programme is in English and no tuition fees apply.
