PhD Position in fungal genetics

Expertise
Signal transduction processes in fungal gene regulation
Workplace
AIT Austrian Institute of Technology
Closing Date

Content

Fungi sense their environment with a complex signaling mechanism and adjust their metabolism and production of enzymes and secondary metabolites accordingly. These adjustments influence chemical communication with other fungi as well as with plants and regulate degradation of extracellular substrates. We investigate the signaling pathways triggering these adjustments to understand how fungi interact with their environment. Thereby, we understand regulation of important enzymes and toxins as well as potential pharmaceuticals. We apply functional genomics omics analyses.

For the PhD position we expect an ambitious student with a master degree in biotechnology, genetics or molecular biology or similar fields. The position is fully funded according to FWF guidelines. Experience in bioinformatics is a bonus. If you are interested, please submit a motivation letter, CV and certificates to monika.schmoll(at)ait.ac.at
