5 PhD positions in Molecular and Chemical Ecology and Evolution
International Max Planck Research School: “The Exploration of Ecological Interactions with Molecular and Chemical Techniques”
The International Max Planck Research School (IMPRS)”The Exploration of Ecological Interactions with Molecular and Chemical Techniques” in Jena, Germany, invites applications for 5 PhD positions starting in October 2019 — January 2020. The overarching research topic is the use of molecular, chemical and neurobiological methods to experimentally explore ecological interactions under natural conditions. The most important focus is about the relationship between microbes, plants and herbivores, and their environment, in addition to the evolutionary and behavioural consequences of those interactions. We provide 12 exciting projects focusing on various organisms and approaches. The comprehensive list of projects offered including project descriptions can be obtained on our site (http://imprs.ice.mpg.de/ext/index.php?id=420).
We’re looking for enthusiastic PhD students with strong interests in the above-described central subject. Applicants must have or be about to acquire a Masters or equivalent degree in one of these fields: entomology, neurobiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, analytical chemistry, plant physiology, genetics, ecology, evolutionary biology, bioinformatics, and math and computer science. Our projects are exceptionally integrative and need a willingness to closely associate with researchers of various backgrounds.
The Research School is a joint initiative of the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology and the Friedrich Schiller University. We provide state-of-the-art equipment, a superb research environment, supervision by a thesis committee and a structured training program such as scientific courses, training in transferable and outreach abilities and participation in research symposia. Successful applicants will receive a Max Planck support contract. There are no tuition charges and the working language is English.
The application deadline is May 24th, 2019.
