We are looking for a talented

PhD student in Plant Cell Physiology

We offer a stimulating working environment and excellent scientific infrastructure. Our lab studies SNARE proteins with a special interest in their membrane insertion during protein biogenesis. We recently described the GET (Guided Entry of Tail-anchored (TA) Proteins) pathway in Arabidopsis and found that its loss partially prevents a root hair specific SNARE to localise to the plasma membrane (further reading: Xing et al. 2017, PNAS).


This is a grant-funded position (SFB1101-A06 see link below for further details) which will begin as soon as possible. Reviewing of applications will begin immediately and the position will remain open until a suitable candidate is found.
