Advertising institute: IBG-2 – Plant Sciences
Reference number: D041/2015, Natural, agronomical or bioinformatics sciences
Within its graduate program “Quantitative Plant Sciences” the Institute of Bio- and Geosciences – Plant Sciences (IBG-2) seeks several
PhD students (natural, agronomical or bioinformatics sciences)
for several 3 year positions
Plants provide biomass for the growing demands in a world with increasing population, less fossil resources and higher risks for the environment. Plants are the basis for delivering with amble and healthy food to a growing population in a future bio-economy, where renewable raw materials from plants are used as well for non-food applications for materials, chemicals and energy. Plant production is affected by climate change and plant key elements in mitigation of climate change. On the basis of molecular, physiological and ecological expertise, the Institute focuses on integrated concepts for an intensified and sustainable crop production. New technologies, such as (non-invasive) phenotyping with non-invasive methods or bioinformatics, open up new opportunities to generate and apply knowledge on plants for a sustainable bio-economy.
Ph.D. positions will be filled in the following themes:
Topic 1: Dynamics of leaf water status and flow by active thermography
Topic 2: Barley root system architecture growing into a changing soil environment
Topic 3: Characterizing heat and drought resistance of seed filling in wheat
Topic 4: Modelling the impact of water availability on carbon transport in plants
