The International Max Planck Research School “Primary Metabolism and Plant Growth” (IMPRS-PMPG) is a doctoral programme in modern plant science at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology and the University of Potsdam. Doctoral students in the IMPRS-PMPG pursue their research in the groups and departments of IMPRS faculty.
About the programme:
- The Melbourne-Potsdam PhD Programme (MelPoPP) is a joint initiative of the University of Melbourne, Australia, the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology, and the University of Potsdam, Germany.
- Doctoral students in this programme have projects that are jointly supervised by group leaders in Melbourne and Potsdam, and spend time in Germany and Australia.
- The recruitment is open for both programmes via an integrated application and interview procedure. Currently, we are inviting applications for Doctoral Positions.
- Doctoral candidates and their research projects will start in second half of 2021, between June and December.
- Doctoral projects will focus on molecular, genomic and systems-oriented approaches using Arabidopsis thaliana and other model plants. Our research combines molecular phenotyping (‘omics’) technologies and cutting-edge analytical techniques with bioinformatics and modelling.
- Applications are open to highly motivated students who can tackle scientific problems in modern plant science.
- Applicant must be highly qualified holding or expecting to complete an M.Sc or equivalent degree in Biology, Biochemistry, Bioinformatics, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, or related fields in 2021 are encouraged to apply.
- The working language is English.
