Two Postdoctoral Positions, Arabidopsis stress signaling
Two Postdoctoral Positions, Arabidopsis, National Taiwan University.
1) A three-year postdoctoral position is available in Laurent
Zimmerli?s lab at the National Taiwan University in Taipei. The
position is available immediately. We are interested in Arabidopsis
stress perception. The chemical beta amino-butyric acid (BABA)
enhances Arabidopsis stress resistance by potentiating plant defense
mechanisms, a still poorly understood phenomenon called ?priming?.
BABA-priming is a general mechanism (i.e. observed during the response
to unrelated stresses). The research will focus on the
characterization of newly discovered genes involved in BABA-priming.
The candidate should have a good understanding of plant stress and
developmental biology. Candidates with strong skills in Arabidopsis
molecular genetics are preferred. Proven ability to write scientific
papers is desirable. Chinese language skills are NOT required and
international scientists are encouraged to apply.
2) We are also looking for a candidate willing to apply for a two-year
postdoctoral position in Laurent Zimmerli?s lab through a grant
application. To maximize grant application success the candidate
should have published (or accepted for publication) at least one
article as first author in an international peer reviewed journal (IF
mutant(s) defective in nonhost resistance. Applicants must have
expertise in plant pathology and molecular genetics. The working
language in the lab is English, thus international scientists are
encouraged to apply.
The National Taiwan University is the most renowned university in
Taiwan and provides excellent conditions for research. This university
is located in Taipei, a vibrant and amazing city. Taiwan offers great
recreation opportunities such as mountain hiking, snorkeling and nice
