post-doc position in Plant Cell Biology at McGill University, Canada
A postdoctoral position in molecular plant cell biology is available
immediately in the Department of Biology at McGill University, Montreal,
Canada. The successful applicant will join a research group studying the
molecular mechanism of intracellular membrane trafficking on the plant
secretory pathway. The postdoctoral project aims to identify plant specific
genes/factors involved in regulation of biosynthetic membrane trafficking to
the plasma membrane, and to determine their roles in the generation of cell
walls as well as cell and tissue morphogenesis in plants. We are using a
combined approach of genetics, in vivo imaging and molecular biology in the
model plant species arabidopsis. For more information please check [Only registered users see links. ].
Applicants should hold a Ph.D, have expertise in molecular biology,
genetics, and a good understanding of plant cell biology and its techniques.
Applicants with experience studying protein-protein interactions (e.g. yeast
2-H and TAP tag-based approaches) will be given priority. Self motivation
is essential. Applications will be considered until a suitable candidate is
