Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) and the Department of Plant-Microbe Interactions invites applications for three PhD positions and one postdoctoral position in Plant Microbiota. The selected candidates will investigate community-level assembly of plant-microbe interactions, the role of the plant immune system in shaping resident microbial consortia and to establish computational pipelines for analysis of plant microbiota data. The positions are funded by DFG.

About the positions:
  • 1 PhD position in the group of Jane Parker (in collaboration with Alga Zuccaro at Cologne University): investigate the impact of Arabidopsis immunity programmes on root fungal endophyte colonization;
  • 1 PhD position in the group of Kenichi Tsuda: to study the impact of plant immunity on the functions of commensal bacteria and the plant microbiota;
  • 1 PhD position in the group of Stéphane Hacquard: to carry out genome-resolved fungal metatranscriptomics within synthetic fungal-bacterial communities colonizing plant roots;
  • 1 postdoctoral position in the group of Ruben Garrido-Oter: to develop computational approaches for the analysis of synthetic community sequencing data

Requirements:

  • Applicant must be motivated with Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Genetics/Molecular Biology/Microbiology or Bioinformatics.
