Post-doctoral position at the Institute for Plant Biotechnology (IPB)

The project:

Title: Proteomic analysis of plants treated with growth promoting substances and functional analysis of the genes identified

Plants will be treated with growth-promoting substances and analyzed for changes in protein expression. Proteins that are up or down-regulated will be further characterized, and the corresponding genes functionally analyzed using reverse genetic approaches. This will include genes that have been identified previously.

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 proteomic analysis.
