PhD position in plant cell and molecular biology, SLU

Here is an exciting chance to do a PhD on plant autophagy. The project will focus on establishing a detailed time-resolved in planta analysis of the autophagic response to short and prolonged stress. Plant autophagy is known to be important for drought and salt stress tolerance, plant-pathogen interactions, fecundity and longevity of the plant, but many details of its regulation remain to be studied.
