Academic Career


Stefanie Wienkoop holds a PhD (Dr. rer. nat.) from the Technical University of Darmstadt (TUD), Germany in the area of plant molecular biology.
After receiving her PhD in 2000, she took a postdoctoral position in the Biology Department at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Canada characterizing the plasma membrane bound nitrate reductase and nitrate uptake in plants using molecular and biochemistry techniques.
In 2001 she received a Marie-Curie Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Risø National Laboratories (Risø DTU), Denmark. During this period she employed advanced mass spectrometry techniques to examine the proteome of the peribacteroid membrane of Legumes.
Towards the end of 2002 she received a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Max Planck Institute of Molecular Plant Physiology (MPIMP) in Potsdam-Golm, Germany to extend and further develop techniques for mass spectrometry bases plant proteomics in projects around drought stress effects on N-fixation, amongst others.
In 2008 she was invited to build a research team at the Division of Molecular Systems Biology, University of Vienna, Austria. Here, she was awarded the habilitation in 2012 and is Head of the Molecular Plant-Microsymbiont Interaction group. The research objectives of her team are to investigate the effects of symbiotic microbe interactions on the plants metabolism and subsequently their response to abiotic and biotic stress with an additional focus on the symbiosome membrane. Her research includes the integration of plant physiology approaches with proteomics and metabolomics on cellular and subcellular level (Phenotyping). Wienkoop developed proteomic tools for the automated relative protein quantification as well as the solution to absolute quantify proteins and protein complexes in a stoichiometrically highly accurate approach. She also featured a program for the automated analysis of 15N- metabolic labelling experiments from mass spectrometry raw data in order to characterize protein turnover dynamics in a high throughput manner.
