Přehled

A PhD student position is available in the Department of Molecular Biology and Radiobiology at Mendel University in Brno under the supervision of Dr Pavel Kerchev. The project is funded by a recently awarded grant from the Czech Science Foundation and will be executed in close collaboration with the group of Dr Michael Wrzaczek at the Institute of Plant Molecular Biology, Czech Academy of Sciences and the Van Breusegem lab at the VIB-UGent Center for Plant Systems Biology, Belgium.

The project will investigate how redox regulation impacts the epigenetic landscape in response to environmental stimuli in plants. The successful candidate will use a multidisciplinary approach combining proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics, and a diverse range of molecular biology tools.

We offer
