Opportunities for highly motivated and creative M.Sc. and Ph.D. students that are interested in understanding the biochemistry and physiology of plant stress response.

The lab is focused in the apex of abscisic acid (ABA) signal transduction pathway and related physiological/cellular stress response. 
We use state-of-the-art biochemical and molecular biology approaches to genetically dissect the ABA pathway as well as analytical chemistry strategies to discover novel plant hormones and growth regulators.

Don’t hesitate to apply! Motivation will always outrun experience.

Ph.D. projects:

- open to new ideas!

- Genetic dissection of the ABA stress signaling pathway using model and crop plants.

- Systematic discovery of novel plant hormones and growth regulators using biochemistry and analytical chemistry approaches.

M.Sc. projects:

- Biochemical analysis of the constitutive activated PYR/PYL ABA receptors from a variety of crop plants.

- Physiological, Genetic, molecular and biochemical analysis of a newly identified protein ligand
