Post-doctoral position in molecular biology at IPB

The project:
Title: Manipulation of carbohydrate metabolism in transgenic sugarcane and metabolite and transcript profiling of the transgenic linesDifferent constructs will be generated to affect carbohydrate metabolism, transformed into sugarcane and selected transgenic lines will be characterized in depth with respect to the changes effected by the transgene on cell biology and metabolism.

Requirements for the position
The successful candidate should:
– have a strong background in plant molecular biology
– have an excellent track record of published research
– have knowledge and insight into the analytical techniques for the global analysis of gene expression and metabolism
