Graduate School Life Science Munich

The Graduate School LSM offers an international doctoral programme to motivated and excellent academically qualified next generation researchers at one of Europe’s top Universities.

LSM calls for doctoral applications on a yearly basis, open from the 1st of October until the 30th of November 2022.In this project, parts of the light reactions of photosynthesis from very different species will be combined in a model cyanobacterium by genetic engineering.
The goal is to enhance photosynthesis with respect to its potential to use light from different wavelengths.

In a complementary approach we use adaptive laboratory evolution to make photosynthetic organisms more tolerant against different stresses like for instance high light or high temperature stress.

Corresponding mutations will be identified by whole-genome sequencing, characterized for their molecular effects, and tested for their potential to enhance stress tolerance in several species.
