|PhD student position: Promotion of drought stress resistance in maize by arbuscular mycorrhiza symbiosis|
We are looking for a PhD student to work in the Gutjahr lab at at the Biocenter of the University of Munich (LMU), Germany. The position is available for 3 years starting at the earliest convenience. You will characterize growth and drought stress resistance in response to arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) of European maize lines to identify variation in response to AM among the lines. This will be important pioneering work to find later on the... READ MORE ...

|Postdoc positions on Plant Selective Autophagy|
The Dagdas Group is seeking skilled and motivated postdocs to join our lab at the Gregor Mendel Institute (GMI). Our long term goal is to gain mechanistic insight into the role of selective autophagy in plant development and stress tolerance. Our initial objective is to generate a framework to study autophagy at a cell type specific resolution.
Some of the research topics that we will initially focus are: (1) discovering/characterizing... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: Feb 9th|
This weeks Arabidopsis Roundup again includes a broad selection of research topics. Firstly researchers at SLCU are involved in work that describes Arabidopsis sepal development. Secondly Cyril Zipfel from TSL leads a study that adds a layer of complexity to our knowledge of cellular pathogen perception. Thirdly the group of Reiner van der Hoorn from Oxford introduces the use of a novel set of... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: January 17th|
Todays Arabidopsis Research Roundup includes some excellent examples of UK labs engaged in collaborative work with researchers from around the globe. However first up is a study solely from the John Innes Centre, led by Vinod Kumar, that investigates the role of PIF4 during the thermosensory response. Secondly David Evans (Oxford Brookes University) is a co-author on a French-led study that has looked into the role of LINC complexes during... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: January 11th|
The first Arabidopsis Research Roundup of 2017 includes a wide range of studies that use our favourite model organism.
Firstly Kerry Franklin (University of Bristol) is the corresponding author on a paper that describes the complex interaction between the responses to sunlight and heat. Secondly Paul Dupree (University of Cambridge) leads a study that defines the important structural relationship between xylan and cellulose. Thirdly members... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: December 29th|
The final Research Roundup of 2016 includes two papers that take different strategies toward the ultimate aim of crop improvement and use Arabidopsis as a tool for their initial discoveries. Firstly Christine Raines (University of Essex) uses a transgenic approach to upregulate enzymes of the calvin cycle while researchers from Rothamstead and Oxford use a chemical intervention strategy. Both of these strategies are successful in increasing yield.... READ MORE ...
