PhD Student (m/f/d) - Local and Systemic Responses in Root-Microbe Interactions

In the frame of the DFG funded priority programme “Deconstruction and Reconstruction of the Plant Microbiota: DECRyPT” (SPP 2125) a PhD position is available for three years in the Department of Cell and Metabolic Biology of the Leibniz-Institute of Plant Biochemistry (IPB – www.ipb-halle.de/en/) in Halle (Saale), Germany.

 

The IPB has outstanding facilities for plant research and is well integrated on the Research Campus of Halle with close ties to the Martin-Luther University and other Research Institutes in the region.

 

The goal of the project, which is a collaboration with the group of Prof. A. Zuccaro at the University of Cologne, is to understand how host-microbe interactions in natural soil shape and are reshaped by local and systemic responses of the root microbiome. Using barley (Hordeum vulgare) as a model host, root infection studies with the beneficial endophyte Serendipita vermifera, the pathogenic fungus Bipolaris sorokiniana and microbial consortia are going to be analysed at the metabolic level. In previous work we showed the formation of diterpene and other novel phytoalexins from barley. Using mutants generated by gene editing, we will evaluate the impact of these phytoalexins in the interaction with microorganisms and in shaping the rhizosphere microbiome.

 

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with hands-on experience in at least one of the following areas: plant-microbe interactions, metabolomics, or biochemistry of secondary metabolites. In addition, the candidate should be conversant with statistical methods, including uni- and multivariate data analyses.

 

The position is funded for 3 years initially. Salary is according to the German Public Service (65% of E13 TV-L).

 

For further information please contact Prof. Alain Tissier (alain.tissier@ipb-halle.de)

 

Please submit your complete application including a cover letter, CV and transcripts quoting reference number 10/2022 to: bewerbungen@ipb-halle.de. Review of applications begins immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

 

The successful candidate with academic degrees not obtained at a German university must submit a certificate assessment for foreign university qualifications (Statement of Comparability for Foreign Higher Education Qualifications) from the Central Office for Foreign Education (https://www.kmk.org/zab/central-office-for-foreign-education).

W3-Professorship in "Crop Plant Genetics"

The Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) is the largest university in the state Saxony-Anhalt. It
cooperates with research institutions like the Leibniz Institute of Plant Genetics and Crop Plant Research
(IPK Gatersleben). The IPK is one of the world’s leading international institutions in the field of plant
genetics and crop science. Its research program and services contribute significantly to conserving,
exploring and exploiting crop diversity. Research goals of both institutions are driven by the need to ensure
an efficient and sustainable supply of food, energy and raw materials, thereby addressing a major global
ecological challenge.


Both institutions invite applications for a tenured


W3-Professorship in "Crop Plant Genetics"
(Successor to Prof. Dr. Andreas Graner)


to be filled by 1 October 2023. We are looking for an excellent researcher with high international visibility in
the area of crop plant genetics. By exploiting plant genetic resources hosted at IPK, the candidate is
expected to develop and establish innovative approaches and strategies, which are complementary to the
existing ones and allow elucidation of the genetic architecture and underlying genes determining
development, yield and quality traits in crops.

Preferred research topics include conservation management, taxonomy, evolutionary genetics, domesti-
cation genetics, developmental genetics and stress genomics. The envisaged research program shall be
internationally competitive and follow the lines of the Leibniz Association „theoria cum praxi“ combining
basic and applied research.


The successful candidate will head the Department "Genebank" at IPK, actively promote the further
development of the Federal Ex situ Gene Bank and its transformation into a Biodigital Resource Centre,
and initiate and direct the integration and digitalization of novel genetic resources (e.g. precision collec-
tions, mapping populations). The candidate shall become an active member of the Board of Directors and
thus requires experience in establishing and running research groups. The candidate is further expected to
develop research programs and acquire third-party funding. Previous and recent research work should be
documented by excellent publications.


Successful applicants will engage in teaching at the Faculty of Natural Sciences III of the MLU with 2 hours
per week. She/He will participate in the B.Sc. program "Agricultural Science" as well as in other B.Sc.,
M.Sc. or graduate programs. The willingness and ability to teach in English is expected. Further duties and
responsibilities are stipulated in section 34 of the Saxony-Anhalt State Law of Universities.
The position holder is expected to have an interdisciplinary orientation and a willingness to cooperate
across faculties. The position offers excellent opportunities to collaborate with other research institutions or
universities as well as with domestic and international breeding companies. Further information can be
obtained from Prof. Dr. Nicolaus von Wirén (email: vonwiren@ipk-gatersleben.de; telephone: +49 39482
5602).


Applicants need to fulfil the pre-conditions of appointment as stipulated in section 35 of the Saxony-Anhalt
State Law of Universities. Particular emphasis is placed on a Habilitation in the relevant field, or an
equivalent level of scientific achievement and recognition. Candidates are expected to have attained the
appropriate level of experience or qualification in teaching.


Their professional careers as well as relevant publications and in particular relevant experience in crop
genetic issues should confirm this expectation.


The MLU is committed to diversity and aims to create an inclusive environment where our staff and
students feel valued and inspired. In particular, we aim to increase the proportion of women appointed as
permanent staff; therefore, appropriately qualified female candidates are strongly encouraged to apply for
this position.
The IPK and the MLU strive to provide an environment compatible with work-life balance and have been
certified as family-friendly institutions. Applications from candidates with disabilities are particularly
welcome, and will be given preference in the event of equivalent qualification.


Applications should include a cover letter, curriculum vitae, academic certificates, description of profes-
sional career, list of publications, record of acquired research grants, and teaching record. Please include
your business and private addresses.


Please also provide a resume of past and future research interests as well as a research concept for the
department considering collaborations with other groups at IPK and MLU (max. 2-3 pages).


The complete application should be sent both electronically by email (integrated pdf file less than 5 MB) as
well as in paper form not later than 15 April 2022 to the following address:

PhD student (m/f/d) in Protein Biochemistry

at the Department Biochemistry of Plant Interactions within the research group “Nuclear Processes in Plant Defense”.

 

We are looking for a highly motivated candidate to identify substrates of protein ADP-ribosylation in model and crop plant species. ADP-ribosylation is a post-translational protein modification that is conserved in all land plants. The modification has been associated with plant stress responses to defined biotic and abiotic stress conditions. However, substrates and the consequences of ADP-ribosylation for protein function remain largely unknown in plants. In addition, many plant pathogens deliver ADP-ribosylating effectors (toxins) into plant cells to manipulate host physiology or innate immunity. The candidate will build on established methods and the state-of-the-art protein mass spectrometry facilities within the department to identify novel substrates of ADP-ribosylation in plants and address functional consequences of the protein modification.

Applicants must hold a Diploma or Master’s degree in biochemistry, biology or a closely related field. The ideal candidate has a strong background in plant protein biochemistry, post-translational protein modifications or protein mass spectrometry and has a demonstrated ability to work and communicate efficiently and productively in a collaborative research team. The candidate has strong oral and written communication skills in English.
