3.7.23

PhD position (m/f/d, E 13 TV-L, 50%)
in the Biomechanical Modeling of Morphogenesis (BM2) lab


Bewerbungsfrist 31.07.2023

A PhD position (initially 3 years) is available in our research group in the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), at the University of Tübingen (Germany). The position is available starting on 1.10.2023

Research
The newly established BM2 lab is an interdisciplinary research group at the interface of physics, biology and computer science interested in understanding morphogenesis, bio-mechanics and how they interact in living systems, mostly plants. We do so by developing and using ad-hoc computational tools (MorphoMechanX) which enable us to provide  explanatory and predictive scenarios for real biological problems (provided by our partner labs).

Your profile
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with excellent written and oral English,  good communication and teamwork skills, who can work independently and in a goal-oriented manner. The ideal candidate should have a MSc or equivalent in a field connected to computational science (i.e. physics, mathematics, computer science, engineering, computational biology…). Strong mathematical and analytical skills are required as well as some programming experience, while initial exposure to Finite Element Methods  would be a plus.

The candidate will be enrolled in a doctoral program offered by the University of Tübingen.

Environment
The ZMBP is a world-class institution in molecular plant biology, benefiting from brand-new infrastructures within the University of Tübingen science campus, and recognized for many conceptual and technological breakthroughs in the fields of plant development, cell biology, and plant-microbe interactions. The campus facilitates connections with the proximal faculties of Physics, Mathematics and the Inter-faculty Institute of Microbiology and Infection Medicine.

Tübingen is an international, dynamic, and lively university town in the Swabian Jura.

How to apply
Interested applicants should submit a single PDF comprising a motivation letter describing  their research interests, an up-to-date CV, and the names and contact information for 2 references to bm2labspam prevention@zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de. The closing date for applying is 31.07.23 or until a suitable candidate has been found. The preferred starting date for this position is from the 1.10.2023 onward, but an alternative starting date could be arranged. For more information, please contact Dr. Gabriella Mosca ( bm2labspam prevention@zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de) via email.

The University of Tübingen is committed to equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion and wishes to enhance the share of women and under-represented categories employed in research. Applications from equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference.

The employment will be handled by the central administration of the University of Tübingen.

 

 

6.6.23

PhD position (m/f/d, E 13 TV-L, 50%) in the Timing of Fate Transitions Lab

A PhD position (initially 3 years) is available in our laboratory in the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), at the University of Tübingen (Germany). The position is available starting November 2023.

Research

Our newly established research group studies mechanisms plants use, to control the timing of cell fate transitions. During plant development complex organs are formed with meticulously patterned cell identities. However, none of the embryonically specified cells differentiate before germination and their ‘master regulators’ are unable to induce differentiation (for more background see Smit et al. 2023 Dev Cell). In general, we are interested in plant development, cell identity, and pattern formation.

Your profile

We are looking for a curiosity-driven, highly motivated candidate with good communication and teamwork skills who can work independently in a goal-oriented manner. The candidate should have an MSc or equivalent in plant biology or biochemistry (or similar) and training in molecular biology. Excellent English written and oral skills are required, previous experience with Arabidopsis thaliana and confocal microscopy are a plus. The candidate will join the ZMBP graduate program that offers a broad interdisciplinary training in the molecular life sciences.

Environment

The ZMBP is a world-class institution in molecular plant biology, benefiting from brand-new infrastructures within the University of Tübingen science campus, and recognized for many conceptual and technological breakthroughs in the fields of plant development, cell biology, and plant-microbe interactions. The institute is equipped with cutting-edge microscopes, in-house proteomic, metabolomic and plant transformation facilities. Tübingen is an international, dynamic, and lively university town.

How to apply

Interested applicants should submit a single PDF comprising a motivation letter describing your research interests, an up-to-date CV, and the names and contact information for 2 references to timing.labspam prevention@zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de. The preferred starting date for this position is from the 1st of November 2023 onwards, but an alternative starting date could be arranged. Screening of applications will begin September 2023 and will continue until a suitable candidate is found. For more information, please contact Margot Smit via email (timing.labspam prevention@zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de) or Twitter (@likeyoda1).

The University of Tübingen is committed to equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion and wishes to enhance the share of women employed in research. Applications from equally qualified candidates with disabilities will be given preference. The employment will be handled by the central administration of the University of Tübingen.

Master and or Bachelor Thesis in Plant Pathogen Interactions (RG El Kasmi)

Our research group in the Department for Plant Physiology at the Center for Plant Molecular Biology (ZMBP), University of Tübingen, is offering the possibility for a highly motivated Master and or Bachelor (of Biology, Biochemistry or Cellular Nanoscience) student to do her/his thesis project in our lab.
We are currently working on the characterization of interactors of a plant immune receptor of the NLR family. We would like to validate the preliminary results (interactions observed in yeast-2-hybrid screen) and to further cell biologically, genetically and biochemically characterize the function of the identified proteins during (NLR-mediated) immunity.
The project will include the following methods:
•    Molecular analysis (cloning, bacterial transformation, etc.)
•    In planta Protein-protein interaction studies (co-immunoprecipitation, BiFC and FRET interaction assays)
•    Genetic studies (crosses, genotyping, 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.
For applying, please send an email with a short motivation statement to Dr. Farid El Kasmi at farid.el-kasmispam prevention@zmbp.uni-tuebingen.de
