PhD in Plant Physiology and Morphology - University of Antwerp

University Scholarships » PhD Studentships » Education Scholarships

A PhD student position is available at the Plant Physiology and Morphology research group, University of Antwerp, to study the effect of ACC on root development.

The lab has documented expertise in this matter, and the position aims for the continuation of conducted research.

The task will be to further explore results obtained by micro-array analysis.

We are currently investigating the expression patterns of several genes in the Arabidopsis root using transgenic plants bearing promotor-GUS/GFP fusions.

This will be accompanied by analysis of knock-out plants and plants overexpressing the genes of interest, together with a proteomic analysis of changes in proteins induced by ACC.

The successful candidate has a solid background in molecular biology, basic skills in proteomics, a deep interest in plant physiology, cell growth and cell walls, and a nice and collegial working spirit.

We are looking for a motivated student with a master degree or equivalent university diploma in biology, molecular biology or biochemistry.

Duration: 4 (1 + 3) years.

Salary: about 1300 Euro/month (depends on qualification)
