PhD position in Plant Molecular Biology / Plant Cuticle Biology

A PhD position is open in the Nawrath group at the Department of Plant Molecular Biology (DBMV). The DBMV regroups 8 laboratories dedicated to the study of plants from a cellular and molecular perspective. With a total of more than 75 collaborators, our department represents one of the largest groups of scientists in plant molecular biology in Switzerland.
The research in the group of Christiane Nawrath ( is aimed on the characterization of genes involved in the formation and function of the plant cuticle. During the proposed project gene functions will be characterized necessary for structuring the cuticle-cell wall continuum in Arabidopsis thaliana.
Highly motivated students that are interested in taking a combined approach using molecular biology, genetics, cell biology, biochemistry and physiology to answer questions in cuticle research are encouraged to apply. Master degree or equivalent in biology is essential, background in plant biology and/or molecular biology desirable.
Applications including a CV, a letter of motivation and information for 2 references should be send to Dr. Christiane Nawrath, Department of Plant Molecular Biology at the University of Lausanne ( Applications are evaluated continuously. Position is available now, starting date to be negotiated.
