PhD in Plant Biology

University of Lausanne, Switzerland

Two PhD positions in plant biology are available in the laboratory of 
Yves Poirier at the Institute of Ecology-Plant Biology, University of 

One of the project is aimed at characterizing a family of membrane 
proteins, recently identified in Arabidopsis thaliana, which play an 
important role in the transport of inorganic phosphate in plants 
(PHO1 genes, Plant Physiol. 97:1087-1093, 1991).

The second project is aimed at studying and modifying the pathways of 
fatty acid biosynthesis and breakdown for the production of 
polyhydroxyalkanoates, a family of biodegradable plastics and 
elastomers (Cur. Opin. Biotechnol., 10: 181-185, 1999).

Both research projects make use of the tools of genetics, molecular 
and cellular biology, as well as biochemistry.

The beginning of these PhD projects is expected for the period of 
January-April 2001.

Interested candidates should send their CV along with the names and 
addresses of two references to:
