Plazo: 11 de septiembre 2011.
Plants adapt to changing environmental conditions through complex regulatory networks involving post-translational modifications. We are interested in studying the role of SUMO, a protein post-translational modifier, in plant abiotic and biotic stress responses. For this purpose, we use a wide range of approaches including biochemical techniques, proteomics, cell biology, plant engineering, genetics and genomics.
We look for a highly motivated student holding a degree in Biological Sciences, Biochemistry, Biotechnology or related, clear thinker and organized. Good academic marks are expected. Experience in laboratory techniques will be evaluated positively.
The successful candidate will join a young research group at the Molecular Genetics Department of the Center for Research in Agricultural genomics (CRAG) CSIC-IRTA- UAB, Barcelona, Spain. The institute offers state-of-the-art facilities that support competitive research in all biology areas that will be required during the development of the project. The project is funded by a European ERC-Starting Grant.
Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and a CV including academic marks to the following email address email@example.com. Application period is open until September 11th, 2011.
