PhD position in plant-microbe interactions, University of Zurich

This position takes different approaches on identifying and characterizing plant transporter proteins crucial for plant-microbe interactions. The work includes characterizing Arabidopsis thaliana and Brachypodium distachyon lines deficient of these transporters. This work will involve molecular biology and biochemistry techniques, liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, analysis of microbiomes, as well as imaging techniques.
