Default A postdoc position in wood formation at UPSC, Sweden

A postdoc position is open within a collaborative project between Umea
Plant Science Centre (UPSC) in Sweden and INRA, France. The aim of the
project is to investigate the function of a glycosyl hydrolase family
1 gene (PttGH1_49) in wood formation of Populus trees. PttGH1_49 was
selected on the basis of specific expression pattern in late
developing xylem elements of Populus wood (Genome Biology 6/4/R34),
and is therefore believed to control either cell wall modification or
cell death. We have constructed PttGH1_49 RNAi lines that revealed
alterations in the FT-IR spectra of the wood. The presently announced
project includes further wood analytics of the RNAi lines as well as
further molecular approaches to elucidate the function of the
PttGH1_49. The wood analytics including pyrolysis-MS is performed in
the context of the Funcfiber programme ([Only registered users see links. ]).
The position is open for one year with a possible extension for a
second year. Highly motivated applicants with a good publication
record will be considered. The requested experimental skills include a
solid background in molecular biology. Previous experience in wood
analytics such as FT-IR or pyrolysis-MS is an advantage. The salary is
15500 SEK (tax free) per month. The position is available immediately
and applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
UPSC is a vibrant and international research centre within plant and
forest experimental biology and biotechnology located in Umea, which
is the capital of northern Sweden. Umea is an attractive university
town with rich academic and cultural activities.
For more information on the research program, please contact one of
the partners of the collaborative project; Dr. Hannele Tuominen
([Only registered users see links. ].se) or Dr. Deborah Goffner
([Only registered users see links. ]-tlse.fr).
Applications including detailed CV, a brief description of the
previous work, a
list of publications and the names of at least two referees must be
sent by e-mail to:
