The Uhrig lab is focused on understanding how plant cells are regulated throughout the day at the
protein-level using advanced quantitative proteomics, biochemistry and diverse functional genomic
techniques. At the protein-level, protein post-translational modifications (PTMs) such as protein
phosphorylation, play a critical role in the regulation of cellular processes. The PhD research of the
applicant will focus on utilizing quantitative proteomics and functional genomics to define novel intersections between cell signaling events and the underlying cellular processes governing plant growth and development. To undertake this work, the student will utilize the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana, but will be part of a research program utilizing a diversity of plant systems directly and through extensive collaboration.
