Postdoctoral Fellow in Root stress genomics
Postdoctoral Fellow (Level A-step 6; fixed term) - $46,514 pa
Ref: RSBS 2.2.1
A post-doctoral fellowship is available at The Australian National
University, Research School of Biological Sciences to work in the area of
root stress functional genomics.
The successful candidate will join a research program aimed at
understanding plant responses to edaphic stress, more specifically to root
mechanical stress. He/She will be one of three appointees to a new
program initiated to investigate the molecular controls of these
using cereals and Arabidopsis as model systems.
We are seeking a molecular biologist with experience in library
construction and in state of the art molecular techniques such as RT-PCR
cDNA analysis by differential display and/or micro-array techniques.
Experience in proteomics would also be very relevant. The appointee will
have a central role in developing molecular approaches and techniques
appropriate to the program and coordinating the work within the program.
This will involve day to day supervision of a Technical Officer newly
appointed to the project and close interactions with other members of the
lab and with collaborators within the School. The work will also require
coordination with several overseas labs, members of a genomic consortium
collaborating on the project.
Appointment: 2 or 3 year contracts with the possibility of a further
contract, subject to funding. Starting date negotiable.
