As part of the PhD program “MENTOR-Molecular Mechanisms to Improve Plant Resilience” (https://mentor.univie.ac.at) a PhD student position is available in the lab of Claudia Jonak to investigate the role of stress-responsive protein kinases in stress acclimation and yield stability under adverse environmental conditions.
Protein kinases are key nodes in signaling coordinating multi-layered responses essential for stress resistance. The PhD project will focus on GSK3-like protein kinases to investigate the link between stress signal transduction, metabolic adaptation, and yield stability under adverse environmental conditions in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and the old, re-emerging, climate-resilient oilseed crop Camelina sativa.
