Beschreibung: We are looking for a talented PhD student with a background in cell and molecular biology or biochemistry. The prospective candidate is required to have a master’s degree in Biology or Biochemistry, should be fluent in English, highly motivated, intellectually independent, experimentally accurate, with good management skills, and able to conduct research independently after initial training.
We offer a stimulating working environment and excellent scientific infrastructure. Our lab studies SNARE proteins with a special interest in their membrane insertion during protein biogenesis. We recently identified the GET (Guided Entry of Tail-anchored (TA) Proteins) pathway in Arabidopsis and found that its loss partially prevents a root hair specific SNARE to localise to the plasma membrane (Xing et al. 2017, PNAS). However, other SNARE and TA proteins do not mislocalize and a root hair growth defect seems to be the only visible phenotype. Hence, an additional pathway facilitates membrane insertion of these vital proteins. This PhD project aims to identify such pathway(s) and characterise its components through biochemical, genetical, and cell biological methods.
