PhD fellow in Plant Science

Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences (PLEN), Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH) is offering a PhD scholarship in Plant Science commencing 01.11.2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.



Description of the scientific environment

The research group aims at understanding the mechanisms of short- and long distance communication in plants and is part of the section of transport biology within PLEN. Cell-to-cell and vascular transport are studied using advanced microscopic methods such as confocal live microscopy, super resolution and electron microscopy. The supervisor has a strong collaboration with the group of Tomas Bohr, Technical University of Denmark (DTU) that covers the question of resistance of solute transport across membranes and plasmodesmata with focus the question of nutrient and sugar transport in trees.



Project description

The project “Multimodal imaging and modelling of vascular flows in leaves”, granted by the Independent Research Fund Denmark (Natural Sciences), supports the collaboration between UCPH and DTU with one PhD fellow each. The successful UCPH candidate will study the balance of water movement between evaporation, photosynthesis and osmotic phloem uptake. This balance is crucial in plants, since water is a limiting resource; but how this balance is regulated under changing environmental conditions is not understood. Key elements of the regulation are hidden in the leaves. This project aims at uncovering the flow control points by multimodal and live imaging (X-ray tomography, fluorescence and electron microscopy) and compare the experimental results with results based on the modelling developed by the DTU candidate with Tomas Bohr as supervisor. Our joint goal is to understand the mechanism and efficiency of the combined vascular flow, eventually exporting sugars out of the leaves.



Principal supervisor is Prof. Dr. Alexander Schulz, Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, als@plen.ku.dk, Direct Phone: +45 35333350



Job description

The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are to:

  • Manage and carry through your research project
  • Take relevant PhD courses (30 ECTS)
  • Publish in international peer reviewed journals and write your PhD thesis
  • Participate in conferences
  • Stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably abroad
  • Teach and disseminate your research


Key criteria for the assessment of candidate

  • A master’s degree relevant for the research project, such as plant physiology, cell biology, biotechnology or biology
  • The grade point average achieved
  • Expertise and/or strong interest in advanced microscopic techniques such as confocal microscopy, X-ray tomography and live imaging
  • Professional qualifications relevant to the PhD programme
  • Previous publications
  • English language skills


Terms of employment

The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.



Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.



The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 322,642 (approx. €43,015) including annual supplement (+ pension up to DKK 44,567). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.



Application Procedure

The application, in English, must be submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.



Please include

  • Cover Letter detailing your motivation and background for applying
  • CV
  • Diploma and transcripts of records (BSc and MSc)
  • Other information for consideration, e.g. list of publications (if any),
  • Full contact details (Name, address, telephone & email) of 1-3 professional referees


The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.



The deadline for applications is 31 July 2019, 23:59 GMT +2.



After the expiry of the deadline for applications, the authorized recruitment manager selects applicants for assessment on the advice of the Interview Committee. Afterwards an assessment committee will be appointed to evaluate the selected applications. The applicants will be notified of the composition of the committee and the final selection of a successful candidate will be made by the Head of Department, based on the recommendations of the assessment committee and the interview committee.

The main criterion for selection will be the research potential of the applicant and the above mentioned skills. The successful candidate will then be requested to formally apply for enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD school of Science.
