Water deficiency is a critical factor limiting crop productivity worldwide. This makes understanding how plants can use water efficiently a prime scientific challenge. The DFG-funded Research Training Network GRK 2064 focuses on the investigation of factors contributing to drought tolerance in the plant model Arabidopsis thaliana and the crop barley (Hordeum vulgare).

The PhD candidate will characterize the cellular and molecular effects of drought on barley stamen maturation under the supervision of Ivan Acosta, research group leader at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research.
