6 Postdoctoral Researcher positions in “Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes”

6 Postdoctoral Researcher positions in “Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes”

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 6 postdoctoral researcher positions in the CBGP Transversal Scientific Program (TSP) “Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes”.
This Scientific program combines the expertise of CBGP research groups that are working in the mechanism of adaptation to environmental changes of crop/model plants. This program involves several groups focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the molecular, genetic, epigenetic and transcriptional and translational regulation of plant acclimation and adaptation to environmental stresses. The postdoctoral research positions are associated to the following projects:
 Mechanisms of plant tolerance to viruses by virus-induced flowering time regulation A (EoI-TSP2-06)
 Improving Seed Vigour in Brassicaceae (EoI-TSP2-05)
 Cross-cutting approaches to unravel novel mechanisms of crop adaptation to climate change (EoI-TSP2-01)
 Exploring plant adaptation to climate change (EoI-TSP2-04)
 Deciphering the Plant Epigenome (EoI-TSP2-02)
 Unraveling plant performance mechanisms under Piriformospora interaction (EoI-TSP2-10)
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 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 such as 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 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.
