Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the newly established group of Dr Aleksandr Gavrin (https://mbg.au.dk/a-gavrin/) at the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics, Aarhus University.
 

Expected start date and duration of employment

This is a 3 year position available from March 1st 2023 or as soon as possible.
 

Job description

The plant microbial environment is a driving selection force, which determines the formation of molecular mechanisms of plant immunity against pathogens and the controlled entry of symbiotic microbes. While symbiosis and pathogenesis result in opposite outcomes they may in part rely on similar principles for their establishment and maintenance. The overall aim of this position is an investigation of common molecular mechanisms involved in symbiosis and disease development using methods of plant genetics, molecular biology and biochemistry.
Expertise in glycobiology and carbohydrate-protein interactions is an advantage.
 

Your profile

We are looking for a highly motivated team member with a strong interest in molecular plant science and plant-microbe interactions, able to plan and conduct research independently.


Essential criteria:


  1. A PhD in relevant disciplines.
  2. Expertise and proven record of successful research in molecular biology and biochemistry.
  3. Previous experience in protein expression, purification, and characterization.
  4. Good communication and writing skills.



Desirable criteria:


  1. Expertise in glycobiochemestry and carbohydrate-modifying enzymes.
  2. Previous experience with plant-microbe interactions and model plants as Medicago truncatula and Lotus japonicus.
 

Who we are and what we offer

The Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Aarhus University is a vibrant and exciting interdisciplinary research environment. The department is located in a newly renovated laboratory complex with well-developed research infrastructure, laboratories and access to shared equipment. The section of plant molecular biology has state-of-the-art facilities for plant cultivation, extensive genetic resources and established plant systems for comparative studies of different plant-microbe interactions. The department provides a welcoming and collaborative atmosphere with close working relationships, professionalism, equality and a healthy work-life balance.
 

Place of work and area of employment

Unfortunately, it is not possible to ensure that letters of reference received after the application deadline will be taken into consideration.


Formalities and salary range


Natural Sciences refers to the Ministerial Order on the Appointment of Academic Staff at Danish Universities under the Danish Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

The application must be in English and include a curriculum vitae, degree certificate, a complete list of publications, a statement of future research plans and information about research activities, teaching portfolio and verified information on previous teaching experience (if any). Guidelines for applicants can be found here.

Appointment shall be in accordance with the collective labour agreement between the Danish Ministry of Taxation and the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. Further information on qualification requirements and job content may be found in the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff at Danish Universities.

Aarhus University’s ambition is to be an attractive and inspiring workplace for all and to foster a culture in which each individual has opportunities to thrive, achieve and develop. We view equality and diversity as assets, and we welcome all applicants.

Research activities will be evaluated in relation to actual research time. Thus, we encourage applicants to specify periods of leave without research activities, in order to be able to subtract these periods from the span of the scientific career during the evaluation of scientific productivity.

Aarhus University offers a broad variety of services for international researchers and accompanying families, including relocation service and career counselling to expat partners. Read more here. Please find more information about entering and working in Denmark here.
