Project title: Specificity of proteasome regulation during plant immunity

Research: Our group at the ZMBP Tübingen is interested in the role of proteolytic degradation pathways such as the proteasome and autophagy during plant immunity. Recently, we have identified that Pseudomonas syringae pv. tomato DC3000 (Pst) activates autophagy for proteasome degradation and enhanced pathogenicity (Üstün et al., 2018). We aim to study the specificity of proteasome regulation during plant-bacteria interactions by using a combination of cell biological, transcriptomics and biochemical methods. The work will include biochemical, cell biological, RNAseq, ChIP-Seq and genetic approaches using Arabidopsis and Pseudomonas syringae as the primary model organisms.

Requirements/Qualifications:

We are looking for a talented PhD student with proven expertise in cell and molecular biology, and Arabidopsis. Prior experiences with methods to study plant-microbe interactions are highly advantageous but not required. Excellent English communication skills as well as teamwork abilities are expected. A master’s degree in molecular biology, biochemistry or corresponding is required.
