Postdoc position in genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, cell biology and biotechnology, China (2015)

Postdoctoral position in the Molecular Plant-Virus interactions group – Shanghai Center for Plant Stress Biology. The Shanghai Center for Plant Stress Biology (PSC) is a recently established institution of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, with joint funding from the Chinese central government and the Shanghai Institutes for Biological Sciences.

PSC fosters innovative, vibrant, and interactive research groups synergized by a battery of state-of-the-art core facilities including genomics, metabolomics, proteomics, cell biology and biotechnology. PSC is located in the picturesque Chenshan Botanical Garden, just 25 miles away from the city centre.

Tasks involved / Project type: 
The primary research interests of the Molecular Plant-Virus Interactions group are to understand how plants sense and respond to plant pathogenic viruses, and how viruses manipulate the plant cell to establish a successful infection. We follow multidisciplinary approaches, integrating genetics, cell biology and biochemistry, to elucidate the cellular and molecular events underlying plant susceptibility to viruses, with a special focus on the DNA viruses geminiviruses. In the medium term, we expect to work closely with breeders and biotechnologists to translate our findings to the field, ensuring that our research has an impact on plant protection and agriculture.
Qualifications / Requirements: We are looking for a dynamic, motivated individual, willing to work as part of an international team. A PhD in plant science and experience in molecular biology techniques are required; experience in plant-virus interactions is desirable but not necessary. A good level of English, both spoken and written, is essential. The successful candidate will engage in the definition of the molecular and physiological changes underpinning infection by geminiviruses.
Initial appointment is for two years, renewable based on performance.

To Apply: Applications in English only. Please send your CV, cover letter, and two references to Rosa Lozano-Duran ( Informal enquiries are welcome.
