Rsearch fellow - mechanistic basis of systemic signaling

Rsearch fellow - mechanistic basis of systemic signaling

The University of Warwick, United Kingdom


Applications are invited for a 12 month Research Fellow position in the laboratory of Prof. Murray Grant to study the mechanistic basis of systemic signaling. This project builds on recent studies using the Arabidopsis thaliana – Pseudomonas syringae pathosystem that have revealed the temporal dynamics of the early events in propagation and perception of systemic signals that lead to systemic acquired resistance. This multidisciplinary project project will use an extensive range of existing genetic and transgenic resources that allow the dynamics underlying establishment of systemic immunity to be monitored at the whole plant, sub-cellular, transcriptomic and electrophysiological levels.

Applicants should have a PhD in biochemistry/plant science or a related discipline. Experience in plant pathology and confocal microscopy are essential. Hands-on experience of whole plant imaging and/or electrophysiology would be highly desirable. Previous research experience in systemic immunity would be advantageous.

Informal enquired should be directed to Prof. Murray Grant at
