  Chemical defense strategies of plants and evasion strategies of feeding insects – A systems biology approach
  Prof S Schuster, Prof J Gershenzon
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. In plant-herbivore interactions, plants frequently produce toxic defense compounds, while insect herbivores frequently develop counter-defenses.
  Communication in plant communities via a hyphal network connecting the roots of neighboring plants
  Prof R Oelmüller, Dr A Mithöfer
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
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.
  Convergent evolution of metabolic pathways: The biosynthesis of benzoxazinoids in dicotyledonous plants
  Dr S O'Connor, Dr TG Köllner
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
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).
  Detoxification of diterpene resin acids by the pine weevil (Hylobius abietis)
  Prof J Gershenzon, Prof E. Kothe, Dr A Schmidt
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. Many insect species feed on plants containing toxic defense compounds without any apparent negative effects. Since many such insects are important agricultural or forestry pests, scientists have been making intensive efforts to discover how insects can overcome chemical defenses.
  Tapping into signaling interactions between nematodes and aphids
  Prof N VanDam, Dr G Kunert
Application Deadline: 24 May 2019
Background. In natural environments, plants are commonly infested by both aboveground and belowground pests. This causes interactions between shoot and root herbivores via systemic induced responses.
  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: 24 May 2019
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].
  IMPRS “From Molecules to Organisms”
Our PhD program in the life sciences places special emphasis on interdisciplinary interactions. We want to train the next generation of scientists to study complex biological processes that cannot be adequately understood within the limits of a single discipline.
  Phytochrome: from photochemistry to signal
  Prof J Hughes
Application Deadline: 23 April 2019
A PhD position at the Institute for Plant Physiology of the Justus Liebig University is available immediately. The position (E13 65%) is funded for three years as part of the project "Phytochrome from photochemistry to signalling" (DFG Hu702/12) in collaboration with Chen Song in Jörg Matysik’s lab in Leipzig.
