Research assistant (m/f/d) with 65%-part-time job Limited to 31.12.2021 Entgeltgruppe 13 TV-L FU Reference code: cold priming

Bewerbungsende: 01.02.2021

Job description:
Chloroplasts sensitively respond to changes in the environmental conditions and control signal transduction pathways regulating nuclear gene expression. Recent work demonstrated that they function also as priming hubs that memorize stress events and modify stress signalling for days after perception of the priming stimulus. The project is part of the research consortium of the CRC 973 (www.sfb973.de ). The candidate will investigate how cold priming specifies stress signalling. The work will start with RNASeq time course experiments in Arabidopsis thaliana wildtype plants and transgenics and heads for new discoveries on the mechanisms how priming interconnects into, dampens and specifies stress signalling. This position is embedded in the graduate school of the CRC 973 and offers a wide range of opportunities for collaboration, training and personal development.

The candidate should hold a university degree in Biology (or a related subjects) (Master of Science) and have expertise in Molecular Plant Science (e.g. Molecular Plant Physiology, Plant Genetics, Plant Biochemistry or Plant Biotechnology).

- excellent theoretical and practical knowledge in plant genetics and plant physiology / biochemistry and interest in plant ecology
- good experience with gene expression analysis in Arabidopsis thaliana and with plant sequence data bases
- good knowledge in statistics, data analysis and experience in handling large data sets and single gene analysis
- good communication skills and self-management
