<x-charset iso-8859-1>The Max-Planck-Institute for Plant Breeding 
Research together with its
partner institutions the University of Cologne, the Institute of Bioorganic
Chemistry (Poznan, Poland), the Institute for Plant Sciences (Gif sur
Yvette, France) and the Biological Research Centre (Szeged, Hungary) invite
applications for Ph.D. fellowships as part of the International Max Planck
Research School (IMPRS) on =ECThe molecular basis of plant development and
environmental interactions=EE. The constellation of participating institutio=
ns
provides excellent conditions and expertise in plant genetics, structural
biology/biochemistry and cell biology. The program seeks to provide an
interdisciplinary education for highly motivated students. Individual
projects will include: structural and functional aspects of plant enzymes
and regulatory proteins, intra- and intercellular signalling, exogenous
signals for cell division and differentiation, determinants of plant-microbe
development, molecular genetics of plant evolution, symbiotic and pathogenic
plant/microbe interactions, resistance/tolerance to abiotic stress factors.
The training includes biweekly seminars, experimental work under the
supervision of two senior faculty of the research school, and practical
courses on e.g. reverse genetics, gene isolation, advanced microscopy,
3-D-structural analysis of proteins, bioinformatics, and novel mass
spectrometry-based protein biochemistry at the participating institutions.
The program is in English and open for students from all countries.
Applicants must hold a Master=EDs degree, comparable to the German diploma, =
as
required by the enrolling University of Cologne. The application should be
in English and must include: a cover letter, a detailed CV including
complete address with email, the grades of the Master=EDs degree, and a one
page thesis summary; candidates from countries with another official
language should provide a proof of efficiency in English as a second
language such as a certificate of TOEFL or IELTS. In addition two letters of
reference should be mailed independently to the IMPRS coordinator. The
fellowship application should be mailed to: IMPRS =F1 Molecular Basis of Pla=
