Postdoctoral fellow and PhD position in

Plant Molecular Biology

 

Our research group at the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), University of Tübingen, Germany, is looking for a highly motivated Postdoctoral fellow as well as for a talented PhD student. The appropriate candidates should have a background in cell and molecular biology and/or biochemistry.
 

The lab aims at elucidating the function of 14-3-3 proteins in plants. 14-3-3 dimers are known to interact with diverse phosphorylated target proteins throughout eukaryotes. Studies with a focus on individual target proteins have unequivocally demonstrated
14-3-3s to be the crucial factors modifying the client’s activity state upon phosphorylation. We currently tackle the analysis of selected 14-3-3 client proteins involved in crucial signaling or cellular processes. In each case the challenge is to analyze the physiological significance as well as the functional consequence of 14-3-3 association in vivo.  
            

Who should apply? People that show enthusiasm for science, that take initiative and are proactive and constructive. The Postdoc position is a grant-funded position (4 years) which will begin as soon as possible. In both cases applications will be accepted until the position is filled and should include CV, research experience and contact details of two references.
 

The University of Tübingen is committed to increase the proportion of women in Science and qualified women are particularly encouraged to apply. Equally qualified applicants with disabilities will be given preference.

Position 1

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with knowledge in molecular biology and/or confocal microscopy. The project will involve generation of constructs with innovative tags for super resolution microscopy and the analysis of the mobility, patterns and complexes of RLKs in plant membrane nano-domains. The microscopy part is supported by a central support Z project of the SFB including a postdoc experienced with high end microscopy techniques.

 

Position 2

We are looking for another excellent candidate with experience in molecular biology and biochemistry. The project will involve protein complex analyses, functional analysis of RLKs and their interactors and integration of the results with the microscopy project described for position 1.

 

For more details on the project background please check the following literature: Halter et al. Curr Biol. 2014, 24(2):134-43; Imkampe et al. Plant Cell 2017, 29(9):2285-2303.

Applicants must hold a master degree in a relevant field. Candidates should be highly motivated individuals interested in molecular biology, plant pathology and microscopy.

Master Thesis in Plant Biochemistry

 

Our research group in the Department for Plant Biochemistry at the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), University of Tübingen, is offering a position for a highly motivated Master student.

We are currently working on the characterization of a plant immunity regulator. We would like to understand the role of phospholipases during plant immune responses. Recent results show a negative regulatory function of a certain PLD and interaction with important key-players of plant innate immunity. The aim of the work will be to validate the preliminary results and to further biochemically characterize the protein.

·       The project will include the following methods:

  • Recombinant protein expression and purification
  • In vitro and in vivo phosphorylation experiments
  • Protein-protein interaction studies (co-immunoprecipitation, yeast two-hybrid and FRET-FLIM interaction assays)
  • Molecular and physiological studies (cloning, real time-PCR, etc.)
  • Plant infection assays

   

We offer an innovative and scientifically stimulating environment, a well-equipped lab as well as an international and cooperative research team. You should apply if you are a biology or biochemistry student who is enthusiastic about science and keen on learning new techniques.

Master Thesis in Plant Physiology

Our research group in the Department for Plant Physiology at the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), University of Tübingen, is looking for a highly motivated Master student.

We are currently working on the PII protein from Arabidopsis, which is at the regulatory junction between nitrogen and fatty acid metabolism in chloroplasts. Recent results of our group pointed toward novel implications of this proteins also in general carbon metabolism. These novel connections should be investigated within the framework of a master thesis.

The project will include the following methods:

  • Proteome sequencing studies and data analysis
  • Recombinant protein expression and purification
  • Protein-protein interaction assays (Biacore analysis, MST, IMAC)
  • Molecular and physiological studies using PII and PII related mutants

 

Who should apply? Biology, Biochemistry and Nano-Science students that are enthusiastic about science and want to try new techniques. Please contact uener.kolukisaoglu[at]zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de.

Master Thesis in Plant Physiology


Our research group in the Department for Plant Physiology at the Center for Plant
Molecular Biology (ZMBP), University of Tübingen, is looking for a highly motivated
Master student.

We are currently working on casein kinases (CKs) potentially involved in the
brassinosteroid-dependent modification of the plasma membrane proton pumps
(AHAs) in Arabidopsis. The challenge of our work is to elucidate whether the CKs are
functionally relevant for brassinosteroid-regulated cell elongation growth, and interact
and phosphorylate the AHAs.

The project will include the following methods:

  • Gateway and classical cloning
  • Yeast two-hybrid and FRET-FLIM interaction assays
  • Molecular and physiological studies using CK mutants
  • Recombinant protein expression and purification
  • In vitro and in vivo phosphorylation experiments


Who should apply? Biology and Biochemistry students that are enthusiastic about
science and want to try new techniques. Please contact klaus.harter@zmbp.unituebingen.
