Website Umeå Plant Science Centre, Department of Plant Physiology, Umeå University

As part of a national program in data-driven life science, the Department of Plant Physiology is looking for one or two talented young scientist who wants to establish a new research topic within the UPSC environment. We will offer a generous starting package, including PhD and postdoctoral positions, as well as ample funding to be used freely by the successful applicant.

The group leader will be a full member of the PI group of UPSC and can enjoy the subsidized use of core facilities of the centre, including state-of-the-art facilities for microscopy, metabolomics, bioinformatics, controlled plant growth and more (UPSC facilities). We are specifically looking for persons who integrate bioinformatic approaches to answer a biological research question within plant infection biology (plant-microbe interaction, plant virus biology, plant metagenome biology, etc). We expect the recruited scientist to be able to lead a group focused on an independent research topic and to generate synergies with other research groups within the centre.

For questions and more information about the programme and UPSC, please contact Professor Johannes Hanson, Head of Department of Plant Physiology: [email protected].
