Postdoctoral position available
UV-B Perception and Signalling
University of Geneva, Switzerland
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study the molecular mechanisms of UV-B perception and signalling. Our group has a strong interest in early UV-B photoreceptor-mediated events regulating UV-B-induced photomorphogenesis and acclimation in plants (for more information on our group please see http://biveg.unige.ch/labs/ulm and selected key publications listed below).
We are looking for talented, promising new team members. The successful candidate is highly motivated, has a strong interest in photobiology and demonstrated expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry or related (first author publication). Previous substantial experience with molecular techniques is essential.
Please send a single PDF file, including curriculum vitae, copies of most recent diplomas, motivation letter and contact details of 2-3 references by e-mail to
