3 Postdoctoral Researcher positions in “Empowering Plant Nutrition”

3 Postdoctoral Researcher positions in “Empowering Plant Nutrition”

CBGP, Spain


The Centro de Biotecnologia y Genómica de Plantas (Center for Plant Biotechnology and Genomics, CBGP), a joint research institute from Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) and the Instituto Nacional de Investigación y Tecnología Agraria y Alimentaria (INIA), is seeking for outstanding candidates for 3 postdoctoral researcher positions in the CBGP Transversal Scientific Program (TSP) “Empowering Plant Nutrition”.
This scientific program will study how associated microorganisms affect plant metal homeostasis and metabolic adjustment to carbon/nitrogen partitioning. It also will cover phosphate starvation responses and genetic improvement of phosphate uptake. This program aims plans to engineer new crop varieties that require less nutrient input while maintaining resilience. The postdoctoral research positions are associated to the following projects:
 Precision Targeting of Metals (EoI-TSP3-02)
 Toward a Sustainable Agriculture: Transcriptional/translational of Root Responses to Phosphate Starvation and Plant-fungus interaction in low phosphate environments (EoI-TSP3-03)
 Spatio-temporal changes in the plant-associated soil microbiome, and their association with plant health, and sustainable agriculture (EoI-TSP3-4)
The CBGP (UPM-INIA) is a research institute that has recently recognized as Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence, an award granted by the Spanish Research Agency. The mission of the CBGP (UPM-INIA) is to carry out fundamental and strategic research in plant science and in microorganisms interacting with plants. The research is focused in understanding important biological process like plant development, the interaction of plants with the environment and the mechanisms of plant nutrition. In addition, the CBGP is interested in developing and using computational biology tools to achieve its goals. The acquired knowledge is used to tackle major problems of the agriculture and forestry, and to develop novel technological solutions. CBGP (UPM-INIA) also has an educational role and is a reference center for training scientists and Master's and Bachelor-level students, in plant biotechnology and genomics.
