Phd position in Molecular Plant Physiology, Bioinformatics, Forestry, Climate Change Research

The Tree Physiology and Molecular Ecology group in the Department of Forest Ecology of the Forest Research Institute of Baden-Wuerttemberg (FVA) is focussing on the physiological adaptation of forest trees to climatic change. There are close and interdiscipinary collaborations with research groups at the University of Freiburg, the University of Hohenheim and the University of Toronto.

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the Department of Forest Ecology to join the Tree Physiology and Molecular Ecology group. The preferred start date is 1 March 2010. The position (65% TV-L E13) is initially funded for three years.

You will study the phenotypic and genotypic Variation of adaptation to drought in trees using 454-sequenzing and gene expression analysis as well ecophysiological methods. The aim of the project is to quantitatively assess adaptation, vulnerability and resistance of trees to future climatic conditions.
You are expected
-to work in an interdisciplinary research project
-to design and conduct experiments in the field and in the glasshouse
-to assess physiological function and genetic variation in trees from field experiments
-to present your research at conferences and to publish your results in interantional journals (peer reviewed).

PhD candidates need to hold a diploma/master degree in biology, forestry or equivalent qualification. Applicants are expected to have experience in one or several of the following areas: plant molecular physiology, molecular biology, bioinformatics or molecular ecology and should have a strong interest in stress physiology and climate change research.
