Jobs for life scientists

Lab Scientist (m/f/div) (Postdoc Level) or Biotechnologist (m/f/div) (M.Sc.)

Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research

The Max Planck Society is one of the leading research organisations in Europe. We offer challenging tasks with a high degree of personal responsibility and creative freedom in research laboratories, workshops, libraries, and administration.

The Max Planck Institute for Plant Breeding Research conducts basic research on plants using a wide variety of methods, in particular molecular genetics, genomics, imaging processes, computational biology, and biochemistry. Our goal is the deep and detailed understanding of plant biology in order to improve conventional breeding methods and to develop environmentally friendly crop protection strategies for crops.

We are looking for

Lab Scientist (m/f/div) (Postdoc Level) or Biotechnologist (m/f/div) (M.Sc.) or Biotechnology Engineer (m/f/div) (M.Sc.)

We focus primarily on the evolution of plants, their genetic blueprint, their development, and their interactions with the environment and microorganisms.

  • How does the plant immune system react to plant pests, for example?
  • How does flowering timing depend on seasonally changing day lengths?
  • How does the genetic variability of crop plants influence adaptation to certain environmental influences?

Plant biologists search for the molecular basis of natural diversity of forms in the laboratory, on the computer, in the greenhouse, or in the natural environment and thus make innovative contributions to plant more
