2 Post-doc and 1 research assistant positions available and fully funded
Post doc positions are available immediately for up to 2 years (until november 2018), the RA position will be available from June 2017.
A major objective in our lab is to decipher the genetic architecture of plant quantitative immunity. We are especially focusing on the diversity of quantitative immunity program in multiple plant genotypes and species, and on the connections between immunity and the response to abiotic stress. We also develop a research program aiming at understanding how the fungal pathogen S. sclerotiorum manipulates plant cells to colonize host tissues, and how its virulence program evolves in the context of plant quantitative immunity.
Our approaches are highly multidisciplinary involving methods ranging from molecular and cell biology, genetics, high throughput phenotyping of plants and microbes, genomics and transcriptomics, systems biology and modeling. We are looking for highly motivated and talented collaborators with expertise in these approaches. Experience in plant pathology or fungal microbiology will be seen as an advantage.
