Two-year positions as Postdoc in Plant Transport Biology

Two-year positions as Postdoc in Plant Transport Biology

University of Copenhagen, Denmark

 

Section for Transport Biology, The Department of Plant and Environmental Sciences, seeks to appoint up to three Postdocs in Plant Transport Biology to commence on 1 April 2018, or shortly thereafter. The positions are financed by a project grant from Innovation Fund Denmark 
 
Background 
Section for Transport Biology aims at uncovering the molecular processes that control growth and development of plants. A major research topic is transport across membranes by primary active pumps.  
 
The goal of the project is to develop a proof-of-concept strategy for implementing novel plant biotechnology approaches that exploit molecular mechanisms to support efficient and sustainable agriculture. Specifically, we will test whether a novel non-gmo mutagenesis platform can be used and further developed to increase the efficiency by which plants take up, store, and remobilize nutrients, while having a lower environmental impact than current agricultural practices.  
 
Job description 
The position entails research, including publications and scientific communication as well as teaching and supervisory obligations, specifically within the field of transport biology, but also in related fields. 
 
The distribution of the postdoc’s functions may vary periodically according to the department’s requirements. 
 
The postdocs will also be expected to participate in the development of the scientific field and in the administrative functions of the section.
