Beschreibung: PhD student position available
UV-B Perception and Signalling in Plants
Laboratory of Plant Molecular Biology, University of Geneva, Switzerland

Applications are invited for a PhD student position in the Roman Ulm laboratory. We seek for talented and highly motivated candidates with strong interest in plant signal transduction to understand the influence of the light environment on plant growth and development. Our group has a strong interest in early UVR8 photoreceptor-mediated events regulating UV-B-induced photomorphogenesis and acclimation in plants (see www.ulm-lab.ch/ for more informations on our group and research).

The successful candidate should hold (or be in the process of getting) an M.Sc. degree in Biology, Biochemistry or related. Experience in basic molecular, cell biological and/or biochemical techniques is expected.

Please send a single pdf file with your motivation letter, CV, degrees, possible starting date and contact details of two references by email to Roman Ulm.

Review of applications will begin immediately and applications will be accepted until the position is filled. Starting date is flexible and upon agreement.

We offer a creative and stimulating international scientific environment, and access to state-of-the art technologies. English is the working language of the laboratory. Geneva offers a vibrant cosmopolitan cultural life and beautiful natural surroundings for outdoor activities.

The successful PhD student candidate will be embedded in the Molecular Biosciences program of the International PhD school in Life Sciences (https://lifesciencesphd.unige.ch/).

Methoden: We explore state-of-the-art methods in molecular biology, molecular genetics, biochemistry and imaging technology to identify the molecular identities and functions of key factors involved in UV-B perception, signalling and responses.
