The research group Evolution of Meiosis, belonging to the Department of Chromosome Biology at the Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research (MPIPZ) – Cologne, is interested in the study of meiotic adaptations and recombination mechanisms taking place in holocentric plants. Here, we address these questions using as model species plants from the genus Rhynchospora, which have species with chiasmatic and achiamastic meiosis.

In the framework of this research project, which aims to elucidate the genome organization, meiotic adaptations and recombination frequencies in the holocentric plants Rhynchospora pubera and R. tenuis, we are looking for a highly motivated postdoc and a PhD candidate.

Please find below the description of the two available positions:

PhD job vacancy:

Your tasks:

  • You are going to study several proteins related to meiotic adaptations and recombination in holocentric plant species
  • You will identify candidate genes, develop new antibodies and perform several cytological experiments in meiotic cells
  • You will be involved in the genome assembly and meiotic transcriptome characterization of holocentric plants

You fit to us:

  • You are bright, highly motivated, and enthusiastic person
  • You are interested in evolutionary plant cytology, cellular biology, evolution, meiosis, recombination
  • You have good communication skills
  • You have the ability to work independently, as well as part of a team

Your qualification and skills:

  • You own a master degree on plant biology, genetics, biochemistry, cytology, or related field
  • You have a background in plant genomics, recombination analysis, meiosis
  • You do have solid English skills, which are a prerequisite for an effective work in our multicultural working environment

Postdoc job vacancy:

Your tasks:

You are going to work on the genome assembly, comparative transcriptome analysis as well as on the estimation of recombination frequencies in holocentric plants

You will perform several bioinformatic tasks regarding comparative genomics and transcriptomics

You fit to us:

  • You are bright, highly motivated, and enthusiastic person
  • You are interested in evolutionary plant genomics, meiosis, evolution
  • You have good communication skills
  • You have the ability to work independently, as well as part of a team

Your qualification and skills:

  • You own a PhD degree in Bioinformatics
  • You have a background in plant genomics, recombination analysis, meiosis, evolution
  • You do have solid English skills, which are a prerequisite for an effective work in our multicultural working environment

For both positions a project based limited position for 36 months will be offered, starting at the earliest on September 15th 2019.
