We offer a PhD position that is financed by the DFG (TV-L/2) for 3 years the Institute of General Botany. The focus of this project is on the further functional analyses of a temporal regulated protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) and its role in the circadian system of the green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. Protein disulfide isomerases are known to play important roles in the folding of nascent proteins and in the formation of disulfide bonds. With a combination of heparin affinity chromatography, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry, we identified a PDI that is specifically enriched by heparin in samples taken during subjective night. It may play a role in circadian redox signaling pathways and/or act in folding other proteins in a circadian gated way.

The Department of Plant Systems Biology at the Technische Universität
München (TUM) invites applications by highly motivated candidates for a
PhD position (TV-L E13/2) in plant cell biology/biochemistry.
Topic: Role of deubiquitination in plant vacuole formation.
We are looking for a highly motivated and hard working candidate with
outstanding research potential. A good understanding in molecular
biology is essential. Our group is interested in the regulation of cellular
events by ubiquitination with a special focus of deubiquitinating
enzymes in the model plant Arabidopsis.
The ‘DNA replication and genome integrity’ research group invites applications for a
PhD student position
The PhD project will focus on the regulatory kinase network that controls DNA replication. Eukaryotic cells with large genomes require this kind of regulation in order to ensure that their DNA is duplicated fast, accurately, to completion, once per cell cycle and coordinated with other cellular processes that are essential for inheritance of genetic and epigenetic information. Failure of this regulatory network leads to genomic instability – the cause of cancer. The group uses the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae as a eukaryotic model system, which offers the advantage of using elegant genetic tools in combination with quantitative biochemical methods and modern genomic and proteomic approaches.
The Center for Plant Molecular Biology ZMBP in Tübingen/Germany invites biologists or biochemists to apply for a PhD student position jointly supervised by renowned Distinguished Guest Professor Jeffrey Dangl (University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill). This position (E13 TV-L / 50%) is now available for three years. The major topic of the work will be the molecular, mechanistic and physiological analysis of receptor kinases implicated in plant immunity to microbial infection. Particular emphasis will be put on those receptors that are target of interference by microbial effectors. For more information on our labs please visit:
In the department of Isotope Biogeochemistry at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research – UFZ we offer a position as
PhD Student in the field of anaerobic biochemistry / microbiology (code-digit 09/2011)
to commence at the earliest date. The appointment is for 3 years, working place is the Helmholtz Centre in Leipzig, Germany.
The project investigates the biochemistry of anaerobic respiration in bacteria of the genus Dehalococcoides. These bacteria are widely distributed in nature and are able to transform highly toxic, halogenated compounds by using them as electron acceptors in an anaerobic respiration. The goals of our research is to understand electron transport pathways leading to energy conservation in these bacteria and to identify the involved proteins. Preliminary results coming from microbiological, biochemical and genomic studies suggest a novel process. We anticipate to contribute with our research to the further development of bioremediation efforts and to identify biotechnological applications.
The CLIB-Graduate Cluster Industrial Biotechnology offers several 3 year PhD scholarships in its structured doctoral programme.
This is a joint initiative of Bielefeld University, the Technical University of Dortmund and the Heinrich-Heine University of Düsseldorf. All are located in NRW, the most populous state of Germany with an excellent research and industrial infrastructure.
Doctoral candidates will join top research labs working both on applied and basic research, take part in key qualification courses and yearly retreats, and join a company for a 3-month industrial internship. They will receive a stipend of 1500 EUR per month.
Research projects span the range of industrial biotechnology and are available in the following areas:
We invite excellent graduates with a M.Sc./M.A. or Diploma in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, biotechnology, bioinformatics, biochemical or chemical engineering (or related disciplines) to apply. Students who will graduate before 30 Sept 2010 are also encouraged to apply.
Please see our website www.graduatecluster.net for open positions and application instructions. Next application deadline: 06 June, 2010. Projects start 01 Oct, 2010

Beasiswa dari pemerintah Jepang atau Monbukagakusho untuk program research student 2011/2012 telah dibuka pada Senin (12 April 2010) dan akan ditutup pada 12 Mei 2010 mendatang.
Program beasiswa ini ditujukan khusus mereka yang berminat dalam program research student di perguruan-perguruan tinggi di Jepang. Beasiswa ini diberikan tanpa ikatan dinas, dengan skema beasiswa yang mencakup biaya kuliah dan biaya hidup.
Pada waktu menjalani research student, peminat juga diperbolehkan melamar ke program degree (S-2/ S-3/professional graduate course) atau meneruskan langsung ke program S-3 setelah menyelesaikan program S-2/professional graduate course, apabila lulus seleksi tes ujian yang diberikan oleh universitas yang bersangkutan.
Selain itu, peminat juga dapat langsung masuk ke program degree tanpa mengikuti research student jika telah mendapatkan izin dari universitas yang bersangkutan.
Selain berusia minimal 34 tahun dan IPK minimal 3.0 dari tingkat perguruan tinggi terakhir (atau nilai EJUminimal 260 dalam jumlah 2 mata ujian tidak termasuk Bahasa Jepang), peminat harus memiliki nilai TOEFL-PBT minimal 550 atau TOEFL-CBT minimal 213 atau TOEFL-IBT minimal 79 atau ekuivalen, atau nilai Japanese Language Proficiency Test minimal level 2.
