Max Planck postdoctoral research fellowships in plant development and diversity
A new department of Comparative Development and Genetics at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) is offering Max Planck postdoctoral research fellowships in the area of plant development and diversity. The Department will operate under the direction of Honorary Professor Dr. Miltos Tsiantis and will investigate problems of plant development and evolution.
The institute is seeking individuals with high level expertise and productivity in the areas of molecular genetics, computational modelling of morphogenesis, bioinformatics, evolutionary genetics and cell biology. Applicants must be highly motivated and have demonstrable ability, evidenced by their publication record, to produce work of excellent quality and international impact.
Applicants must be willing and able to work in a highly collaborative environment and to interact smoothly and productively with group members and external collaborators. The ability to write clearly and succinctly is highly desirable and it is expected that successful applicants will have high-level publications commensurate with their career stage.
The Max Planck Institute aims to increase the proportion of women in so far underrepresented areas. Disabled applicants with equal qualifications will be given preferential treatment.
The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) is one of the world’s premier sites committed to research into fundamental processes and training in plant biology. There are four science departments, three independent research groups and specialist support, totaling about 400 staff including externally funded positions.
Applications should include:
- a cover letter summarising your qualifications and your motivation for joining the department,
- a CV with a full publication list, and
- names and contacts of two referees.
The application should be submitted electronically as one file to Christiane Wojtera: mpipz%27%mpg%27%de,wojtera
