Postdoc position: Transcriptional regulation of arbuscular mycorrhiza development

Technical University of Munich (TUM)

 

To work on the ERC project “Regulatory networks of plant cell rearrangement during symbiont accommodation – RECEIVE”

The position is available immediately in the lab of Caroline Gutjahr at the Weihenstephan Campus of the Technical University in Freising, close to Munich. The position (income level German TVL E13) is initially for 1 year with possibility for extension for up to 4 years.

We are interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms of arbuscular mycorrhiza development and function, using a combination of molecular, genetic, cell biological and biochemical methods. We mainly work with the model legume Lotus japonicus, but also with Arabidopsis, Nicotiana benthamiana, tomato, maize and barley. Our lab is equipped with state of the art instrumentation for molecular, biochemical and cell biological research and we offer a dynamic, international and friendly research ambiance. There are multiple opportunities for interaction at the Weihenstephan Campus (e. g. a collaborative research center for plant science: http://sfb924.wzw.tum.de/index.php?id=3) and there are core facilities for next generation sequencing, proteomics, metabolomics and high-end confocal imaging.

The aim of the project is to investigate transcriptional networks regulating the step-wise rearrangement of root cortex cells during arbuscule development in Lotus japonicus.To work on the ERC project “Regulatory networks of plant cell rearrangement during symbiont accommodation – RECEIVE”
