Beschreibung: Applications are invited for a PhD student position to study UV-B perception, signalling, and responses. Our group has a strong interest in early UVR8 photoreceptor-mediated events regulating UV-B-induced photomorphogenesis and acclimation (see www.ulm-lab.ch/ for more information on our group and research). The successful candidate will be able to develop a research project studying UVR8-mediated signalling and responses using Arabidopsis thaliana and/or Marchantia polymorpha as model system(s).

We are looking for a talented and creative new team member. The successful candidate is highly motivated, has a strong interest in plant signal transduction, and demonstrated expertise in molecular biology, molecular genetics, biochemistry, imaging techniques, or related. Previous experience with molecular techniques is essential. Good communication skills and fluency in spoken and written English are required.

We offer a creative and stimulating international scientific environment, and access to state-of-the-art technologies. Geneva offers an outstanding setting for study and research in the Molecular Life Sciences, as well as beautiful natural surroundings for outdoor activities and a vibrant cosmopolitan cultural life.

If you are interested in joining our team to make key discoveries in how plants perceive, signal and respond to UV-B, please send your application document (incl. a letter of motivation explaining your interest in, and qualification for the position, your C.V., copies of your degrees, and names of 2 references) as a single .pdf file to Roman Ulm (roman.ulm@unige.ch).

Review of applications will begin immediately, and applications will be accepted until the position is filled (→ as long as advertised on www.ulm-lab.ch/positions). The starting date is flexible and upon agreement.
