The Team

The research group of Plant Environmental Signalling and Development is located at the Biology department of the University of Freiburg, in the Hilde Mangold Haus (previously ZBSA) next to the Botanical Gardens.

We are a relatively small, but inclusive, diverse and motivated team. We are always happy to discuss potential fellowship/funding applications and can host MSc and BSc for exciting research projects.
