We seek to understand how plants sense temperature, and with this knowledge breed crops resilient to climate change. 

Recent highlights include the discovery of the first thermosensor in plants, a co-discovery with the group of Jorge Casal.

NEWS! Starting in 2019, Wigge lab is moving to Berlin. Phil is now Head of the Department for Plant Adaptation at the Leibniz IGZ at Grossbeeren, and a Professor at the University of Potsdam.

We are hiring at the graduate student and postdoc level. Please contact Phil directly: wigge@igzev.de

If you want to do a PhD with us, please apply directly to the Max Planck IMPRS Programme, of which Phil is a faculty member.
