Postdoc position - Characterization of novel molecular components involved in Arabidopsis development

UPSC, Sweden

 

A 2-year postdoc position (stipend) is available in Stéphanie Robert's group at the Umeå Plant Science Centre (UPSC), Department of Forest Genetics and Plant Physiology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU).

Most organisms integrate environmental and endogenous stimuli via various signaling pathways that induce developmental responses. This is especially important in plants because of their sessile life style and their capacity to grow continuously and adapt their architecture according to the environmental conditions.

The long-term goal of our research is to understand the signaling mechanisms regulating plant growth and development (http://www.upsc.se/stephanie_robert).

The first phase of this project has already been performed - by applying an innovative chemical genomic strategy. Some novel small molecules have been identified as potential growth regulators modulating plant development. Several mutants resistant to the effect of one of the molecule have been selected, and the mutations identified. As the continuation of the project, the candidate postdoc fellow will aim at characterizing the functional role of novel molecular actors involved in specific developmental processes. This project will be greatly benefited by the complementary knowledge and research experience already present at the Umeå Plant Science Centre. The proposed work is likely to reveal compelling new insights at the forefront of signaling processes in plants.
