A Ph.D. student position is available starting immediately in the lab =20=

of Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology, =20
University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Our department offers excellent =20
research infrastructure combined with a lively, interactive and =20
international scientific community, located in the beautiful Lake =20
Geneva region.

This position is part of the larger =93Plant Growth in a Changing =20
Environment=94 network of SystemsX, the Swiss Systems Biology =
initiative.

The candidate will work on two inter-connected sub-projects:

1. Comprehensive investigation of the genetic and environmental =20
parameters that determine later stage secondary growth vigor of the =20
Arabidopsis vasculature (building on Sibout et al., Current Biology, =20
2008; & recent progress).

2. Quantitative modeling of a hormone-controlled, multi-level =20
feedback loop that determines the homeostasis of the activity of a =20
pivotal regulator of vascular growth (building on recent progress).

More details about the project are available upon request.

Strongly motivated candidates with a solid background knowledge in =20
molecular techniques and a strong interest in bioinformatics and =20
modeling approaches are encouraged to apply.

Please forward applications including a curriculum vitae and contact =20
information for two senior scientist referees by e-mail to =20
christian.hardtke from unil.ch.
