Staffan was appointed as a Max-Planck Group Leader at the MPI for Molecular Plant Physiology in Potsdam in 2008, where he stayed until 2014. Since Jan 2015 Staffan is a R@MAP Professor and an ARC Future Fellow (level 3) at the School of BioSciences at University of Melbourne. He is a Thomson Reuter/Web of Science highly cited researcher 2016 and 2017. The research in his group aims at understanding how plants are producing cellulose, which is the most abundant biopolymer on Earth and that is a raw material for many applications in our society.
