PhD Candidate in Plant-Microbe Interaction (vacancy closed)


Are you interested in Plant-Microbe interactions and looking for a PhD position? This could be your chance!

In this PhD project, the objective is to study perception of plant signals by root-colonizing fungi and the fungal response mediated by the received signals, including colonization of roots and downstream systemic effects on the root/rhizosphere microbiome. You will identify the signals in plant root exudates, the perception mechanism in fungi of plant signals and/or nutrients involved in plant-fungi communication and the downstream influence on fungal colonization and the root/rhizosphere microbiome.

If you feel comfortable performing experimental lab work while simultaneously having an affinity for data analysis, check out this vacancy!

Application deadline is 31 January 2023.
