Postdoc Position


A Postdoc position, which is part of an ERC project funded by European Commission, will be available in the laboratory of Chang Liu at Zentrum für Molekularbiologie der Pflanzen (ZMBP) in University of Tübingen in January 2018. This position remains open until it is filled; the contract is for 3 years (including an initial 6-month probation period) with possibility to extend. The salary and benefits are based on the E13 TV-L level in accordance with guidelines of University of Tübingen.

In this project, we will focus on investigating the dynamic 3D chromatin structures in plants in response to developmental cues and environmental changes. You are expected to handle and integrate large-scale genomics data we newly generated, thus experience with UNIX, R, Python or Perl is essential. Having experience on Hi-C, ChIA-PET, ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, BS-seq, or polymer modeling is an advantage.

To apply, please send your application materials in a single PDF file, including curriculum vitae (highlighting your research experience and achievement), motivation letter, and contact details of at least two referees, to:
chang.liu[at]zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de

The University of Tübingen is an equal opportunity employer. Disabled candidates will be given preference over other equally qualified applicants. The University seeks to raise the number of women in research and teaching and therefore urges qualified women to apply.

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.

For further information and for applying please contact andrea.gust[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 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.
