Postdoctoral positions in Plant Biology/Molecular Biology

will be available immediately. These positions are based on a Max Planck
fellowship and will be initially funded for 1 year (with possible

We seek a motivated candidate with a PhD in plant biology (biology) and
extensive knowledge and skills in molecular biology. Experience with
Arabidopsis and analysis of genome-wide transcriptional regulatory networks
is desirable but not required.
Applicants should have published research results in peer-reviewed high
quality journals, demonstrated creativity, independence, high motivation,
good communication skills, and the ability to work independently as well as
with other members of our research group.

The candidate will work in a project aiming to: 
(1) Understand molecular mechanisms underlying the complex nature of the
plant immune network using a variety of genetic resources and genomics
(2) Understand plant immune network structures, properties and dynamics with
evolutionary aspects using Arabidopsis relatives and natural pathogens.

Please see our website (http://www.mpipz.mpg.de/13257/tsuda) or contact
Kenichi Tsuda (tsuda from mpipz.mpg.de) by e-mail for details.

The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ)
(http://www.mpiz-koeln.mpg.de/) is one of the world's premier sites
committed to research into fundamental processes and training in plant
biology. There are four science departments, three independent research
groups and specialist support, totaling ~ 400 staff including externally
funded positions.

The Max Planck Society is committed to employing more handicapped
individuals and especially encourages them to apply.
The Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas
where they are under-represented and therefore explicitly encourages women
to apply.

Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the
position is filled.
