  Convergent evolution of metabolic pathways: The biosynthesis of benzoxazinoids in dicotyledonous plants
  Dr S O'Connor, Dr TG Köllner
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Benzoxazinoids are indole-derived plant defense compounds that are mainly produced in the grasses, but also in a few species of the Ranunculales and Lamiales (1).
  The effect of climate-relevant temperature shifts on leaf microbiota colonization
  Dr M Agler, Dr D Vassao, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Plant leaves are colonized by diverse microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and other microorganisms. Usually, plant immunity limits microbial growth but given the right conditions and microbiota, aggressive growth may lead to disease (often referred to as the pathobiome).
  PhD at the University of Hong Kong in protein and stem cell engineering
  Dr R Jauch
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

My laboratory studies how transcription factors read the genomic code to toggle the switches that turn genes on and off to give cells their identity.
  Next-generation Hybrid perovskites for Indoor photovoltaics
  Dr L Krishnan Jagadamma
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The world is increasingly using low-power, electronic devices in myriad ways, including sensors for the Internet of Things (IoT), where billions of objects are connected to the internet to make a smart network.
  Communication in plant communities via a hyphal network connecting the roots of neighboring plants
  Prof R Oelmüller, Dr A Mithöfer
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Plants inform their neighbors about pathogen attacks or other kinds of threat. The information is distributed in the plant community via volatiles and/or fungal hyphal networks which connect their roots.
  Evolution of the olfactory system in feeding versus non-feeding moths
  Dr S Bisch-Knaden, Prof N VanDam
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Nocturnal animals like moths rely on their sense of smell when searching for food sources. Most hawk moths, for example, feed on floral nectar and are strongly attracted by the scent of night-blooming plants.
  Mycorrhizal communication: between plant response and fungal symbiosis
  Prof E. Kothe, Dr K Krause, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. With ectomycorrhiza, a mutual symbiosis is providing large ecosystem benefits to forests. The interaction between the basidiomycete fungal partner and the tree is necessary to keep up the mutually beneficial interaction.
  Small bugs - global effects: Microbial communication with consequences for climate functioning
  Prof G. Pohnert, Prof J Gershenzon, Dr M Vallet
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Algae produce massive amounts of dimethylsulfoniopropionate (DMSP) that fuel the organosulfur cycle. On a global scale, several petagrams of this zwitterionic sulfur species are produced annually driving fundamental processes and the marine food web.
  The contribution of microbiome communities in the gut of the mealybug Pseudococcus jackbeardsleyi to the detoxification of cocaine and other tropane alkaloids
  Dr J D'Auria, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Very little data exists regarding how a natural herbivore adapts to a host that is producing toxic defensive metabolites.
  The gut microbiota of the spruce bark beetle: Best friends of a tree killer?
  Prof J Gershenzon, Prof M Kaltenpoth
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Conifer forests in central Europe are currently suffering from an enormous outbreak of bark beetles.
  The role of the transcription factor FLC in growth habit, fruit dimorphism and plant defense of Aethionema arabicum
  Prof G Theißen, Prof J Gershenzon, Prof R Oelmüller
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. The genus Aethiomena has a phylogenetic position at the base of the crucifers (Brassicaceae) and is thus of interest for studying trait evolution in this ecologically and economically important plant family [1].
  Towards GC-MS: Adapting SIRIUS and CSI:FingerID for electron ionization fragmentation
  Prof S Böcker, Prof G. Pohnert, Dr A Svatos
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Background. Mass spectrometry (MS) is the analytical platforms of choice for high-throughput screening of small molecules. MS is typically used in combination with a chromatographic separation technology; gas chromatography (GC-MS) is arguably still the best separation tool for compounds amenable to the technique.
