Postdoc in Plant Molecular Biology

We are looking for an enthusiastic and dedicated person to undertake studies of mRNA decapping components in plants. We have a main focus on recycling mechanisms including mRNA decay and autophagy and how these processes mediate temporary and somatic reprogramming in plants. We study how such processes contribute to both biotic and abiotic stress adaptation, plant development and why these processes are manipulated by microbial effectors.

Based on a grant from the Novo Nordisk Foundation, we have designed a project, which involves studies of mRNA decapping mutants in Arabidopsis. You will make molecular studies of how this cellular machinery targets specific mRNA transcripts to uncover their regulatory role in adaptive responses and examine why immune surveillance systems guard mRNA pathways. You will be part of our highly experienced research team of about 10 people working on related topics.

Required qualifications

The applicant should hold professional as well as personal skills and qualifications as stated below:

  • Applicants should have a PhD-degree in molecular biology or related area
