SubjectsPlant ScienceDescriptionThe International Max Planck Research School ‘Primary Metabolism and Plant Growth’ (IMPRS-PMPG) is a doctoral programme in plant science at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology and the University of Potsdam.

We seek highly motivated students who are interested in modern plant biology. Doctoral projects will focus on molecular, genomic and systems-oriented approaches using Arabidopsis thaliana and other model plants. Our research combines molecular phenotyping (‘omics’) technologies and cutting-edge analytical techniques with bioinformatics and modelling.

Students holding or about to obtain a Master’s or equivalent degree in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, physics, informatics, mathematics, or related fields are encouraged to apply.

We offer excellent research facilities, interdisciplinary scientific training, and a comprehensive complementary training programme. Our working language is English.

The Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam, near Berlin, is one of the largest plant research centres in Europe. The IMPRS-PMPG is embedded in a vibrant research community at the Potsdam Science Park in Potsdam-Golm. Three Max Planck Institutes, two Fraunhofer Institutes, the University of Potsdam, and a centre for start-up companies, provide an excellent infrastructure for modern cross-disciplinary training. Potsdam is only a stone’s throw away from Berlin, the multicultural capital of Germany.
