University of Bonn

The Plant Cell Biology group at the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Botany, University of Bonn, is investigating molecular processes behind the adaptation of plants to changing environments.

We are currently seeking to fill two positions:

PhD (65% TV-L E13) for 3 years

Post-Doc (100% TV-L E13) for 30 months

Durham University

Post Doctoral Research Associate in plant molecular biology for 30 months full time within the group of Professor Marc Knight in the Department of Biosciences. Successful candidate will undertake research that will develop novel ways of measuring stress signalling in the crop potato using expressed recombinant luminescent and fluorescent markers to measure the second messengers calcium and reactive oxygen species with state of the art imaging equipment.

Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG)

A post-doctoral and a PhD position are offered in the group of Salomé Prat at the CRAG to the study of the roles of the clock GIGANTEA and TOC1 proteins, and the FT-like SP6A tuberigen signal in mediating potato resilience to combined temperature and drought stresses. Protein-protein interaction and DNA-binding studies in combination with high throughput transcriptomic analyses will be used to the detailed characterization of the stress-related function of these genes and to the identification of downstream targets of the SP6A-FDL1-14.3.3 tuberization activating complex in below ground stolons.

We are looking for talented and motivated fellows with a background in clock function and/or plant responses to heat and drought stresses. Official language in the lab is English. Experience in the bioinformatics analyses of RNA-seq and ChIP-seq data will be positively valued.

Utrecht University

A postdoc position is available in the group of Dr. Rashmi Sasidharan at Utrecht University to investigate the molecular mechanisms underlying waterlogging resilience in potato.
