Professor Dr. Georg Pohnert pursued his doctoral studies in the group of Professor W. Boland. After receiving his Ph.D. in 1997, he moved to the Cornell University for a postdoc on the biochemical and biophysical characterisation of the E. coli P-protein with a focus on the phenylalanine receptor site. He moved in 1998 to the Max-Planck-Institute for Chemical Ecology, where he worked as group leader on chemical defence mechanisms of algae. In 2005, he was appointed as assistant professor at the Institute of Chemical Sciences and Engineering of the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. He moved to the FriedrichSchiller University in Jena, Germany, in 2007, where he was appointed as chair in Instrumental Analytics. Professor Dr. Pohnert's research interests are in the field of plankton chemical ecology and in the elucidation of induced and activated defence mechanisms of macroalgae.
