7134| University of Freiburg, Genetics Institute| Epigenetic Regulation of Plant Stem Cells| We are seeking highly motivated postdoc candidates to investigate how stem cells in the root meristem sense and adopt to environmental changes. A specific focus will be on the epigenetic regulation of stem cells during this process. Background: Unlike most animals, plants can grow and form new organs throughout their life, which in the case of some long-lived trees can last for more than thousand year. The cells for this are supplied by pluripotent stem cells in the proliferative centers plants, the meristems. In addition to their longevity, plant growth and thus stem cell activity must adjust to environmental signals, such as season, light, water and nutrient supply. How active stem cells can be maintained for such a long time and accurately form new organs and how they can sense and adopt to environmental conditions is a central question for both, stem cell biology and agriculture. Our group previously has shown that the stem cells of the shoot meristem are regulated by a local negatively feedback look between the transcription factor WUSCHEL (WUS) and the signaling peptide CLAVATA3 (Mayer at al, Cell 1998; Schoof et al, Cell 2000). We also found that the root meristem functions in a similar way, expressing the WUS homolog WOX5 (Sarkar et al., Nature 2007). WOX5 is required to maintain the stem cells forming the gravity sensing columella pluripotent but also can reprogram already differentiated cell to induced pluripotent stem cells (iPS). The way WOX5 work is that it changes the chromatin of the stem cells by recruiting a histone modifying enzyme to the DNA of its target genes, and as consequence, the Chromatin becomes compacted and the genes silenced (Pi et al., Developmental Cell, 2015). The columella stem cells are a prefect model to study stem cell regulation, because it consists only of three cells types, the niche cells, called quiescent center, that signal to maintain stem cells pluripotent, the dividing stem cells, and their differentiated daughter cells, the gravity sensing columella cells. The root stem cells must adopt to a number of abiotic and biotic environmental challenges including drought, flooding, nutrient shortage, soil contamination but also bacteria and fungus infections. Understanding how stem cells cope with these conditions to maintain root growth is not only of highest importance to stem cell biology, but also for agriculture, especially considering the global climate change.Goal: Understand how the genetic and epigenetic networks that regulates stem cells are affected and respond to environmental signals to cope with adverse conditions.Methods: In addition to standard genetic and molecular tools, the projects utilizes a novel microfluidic technology that is developed together with our engineering partners. This set up allows to simulate environment conditions with simultaneous 3-dimensional live imaging of cells and of fluorescent reporter proteins. Transcriptome, chromatin, and live imaging data will be combined to create models of how regulatory networks of stem cells cope with changing environmental conditions. We will test the role of specific genes by creating CRISPR/CAS9 induced mutants and comparing how environmental adaptation changed compared to wild type. Results will finally be used to formulate breeding concepts with our collaborators at the Shandong Agricultural University in Tai'an (China) to improve root growth under adverse conditions, such as drought or compromised soil.Lab detailsThe lab language is English. German is not required. For further information, also on our publications, please visit our homepage (www.biologie.uni-freiburg.de/LauxLab). The University of Freiburg with a strong and international scientific community is routinely among the best German Universities in international rankings, and advanced facilities for systems biology, protein analysis, and imaging are available.

These non-coding RNA molecules are ~21 nucleotides in length and exert their activity by base-pairing with specific mRNAs (normally within the 3'UTR) inhibiting gene expression at the post-transcriptional level. Since their discovery, numerous studies have documented the fundamental roles of these small RNA molecules in virtually all aspects of life and disease. However, the mechanisms by which these molecules function to repress gene-expression has remained unclear and controversial. The aims of this project are to resolve and understand the mechanistic heart of the miRNA-repression apparatus, to finally understand how repression is achieved. Using a variety of biochemical approaches you will investigate the role of the helicases in miRNA-repression, the goal being to reconstitute the repressive hub and determine the role of the helicases in this process using an array of RNA-Seq experiments and molecular biology approaches.You will have been awarded (or in the final stages of obtaining) a PhD in biological sciences, have experience in RNA-Seq methodologies, cloning, western blotting, qPCR and immunoprecipitation. Experience of mammalian tissue culture, in vitro RNA synthesis, and bioinformatics would be an advantage. You will be committed to working at a highly competitive level, able to communicate scientific ideas effectively and have published (or about to publish) in a peer-reviewed journal.The Medical Research Council Toxicology Unit, located at the University of Leicester, is an internationally renowned institution delivering field-changing mechanistic insights into toxicology and disease.
