Ph.D. position at the intersection of Plant Development and Plant Nutrition [m/w/d] | 65%, limited for 3 years

The primary goal of the DFG-funded Ph.D. project is to study underlying molecular causes of boron deficiency-induced defects in the primary root of maize to elucidate cellular functions of this rudimentary understood nutrient. The study of boron nutrition is an agronomically important topic, since deficiencies of this essential micronutrient, which occur in many parts of the world, lead to drastic developmental defects and yield reductions in crops.
