A PhD position candidate is available immediately as part of SY-STEM,
a new Marie-Curie Research and Training Network (RTN) that uses
systems biology approaches to analyze stem cell function in
Arabidopsis. This post is for a project in the lab of Detlef Weigel
in the Department of Molecular Biology at the Max Planck Institute
for Developmental Biology in Tuebingen, Germany. The project will
focus on the role of microRNAs and transcription factors in stem cell
biology. Information on the department can be found at
Candidates must be citizens of an EU Member State (other than
Germany) or of an EU Candidate State. The successful candidate needs
to be strongly motivated and have demonstrated expertise in molecular
genetics and genomics. Computational skills are a plus, as this
project strives to integrate many large-scale data sets.
Applications including a curriculum vitae and grades of university
exams should be sent as single PDF files to Ms. Huelya Wicher at
wicher at tuebingen.mpg.de, with the subject line "SY-STEM PhD
position". Please have at least two letters of reference from senior
scientists familiar with your abilities sent on your behalf to the
same email address.
