PG:99127 (PG:00127) 3 year term
We are seeking a Post-doctoral fellow with experience in plant genetics
and molecular biology to join a research group undertaking the genetic
and molecular characterisation of a powdery mildew resistance gene in
grapevine. The research will involve the identification and genetic
mapping of molecular markers linked to the resistance gene and the
localisation of these markers on high molecular weight DNA libraries
for map-based cloning of the resistance gene. The successful candidate
must have a strong background in genetic and/or physical mapping
technologies and a PhD in plant genetics or plant molecular biology.
Position PG:99128 (PG:00128) 3 year term.
We are seeking a Post-doctoral fellow with experience in developmental
plant genetics and molecular biology to join a project aimed at
isolating and characterising genes involved in inflorescence
development, with the strategic goal of manipulating bunch architecture
in grapevines. The research will utilise model systems such as
<italic>Arabidopsis</italic> to identify important genes involved in
inflorescence development. The person will also investigate grapevine
mutants with altered bunch architecture and interact with a project
characterising grapevine floral genes and a project studying the
inheritance of traits affecting grape bunch architecture. The
successful candidate must have a PhD in plant genetics or plant
molecular biology and a strong background in developmental biology and
genetic mapping technologies.
