PhD Position in Signal Transduction during Reproductive Plant Development

PhD Position in Signal Transduction during Reproductive Plant Development

Technical University of Munich, Germany


A Ph.D. position in molecular plant developmental biology is available in the lab of Prof. Kay Schneitz, Dept. of Plant Developmental Biology, Technical University of Munich in Freising/Germany.

The successful candidate will work on the molecular characterization of the signaling pathway mediated by the atypical transmembrane receptor-like kinase STRUBBELIG (SUB) in Arabidopsis (1-4). The SUB pathway functionally links intercellular signaling controlled by receptor kinases and plasmodesmata, gateable channels interconnecting most plant cells, during tissue morphogenesis of for example flowers and ovules. Starting date is January 2017 but is negotiable. The lab is part of the Collaborative Research Centre SFB924 ( and thus funding comes from the German Research Council (DFG) and is at the usual TV-L E13/2 level. Requirements are e.g. a German masters (with a mark of 2.5 or better), a French DEA (a final average of 13 or more), or a masters thesis. The person needs to have a firm basis in basic molecular techniques. Fluency in English is a must. Freising is located about 35 km to the north of Munich. Munich is a lively, cosmopolitan city close to beautiful lakes and the Alps. For further information please contact Kay Schneitz ( and visit the webpage (
