Two postdoctoral positions on plant reproductive biology and apomixis

Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately to work on
developmental and reproductive biology in maize. Both positions are
located at the IRD Research Center in Montpellier, France
(http://www.mpl.ird.fr/apomixis). Projects are focused on female
gametes development (position one) and early seed development (position
two). The project is funded by a public/private sector consortium (1)
dedicated to the dissection and engineering of the molecular components
of apomixis into crops. Positions are available for two years renewable
one year. We seek for highly motivated and qualified applicants with a
Ph.D. degree in genetics, cell biology, plant biology and/or related
fields with demonstrated experience in plant molecular biology.
Experience in developmental biology and/or plant reproductive biology
is desirable. Review of applications will begin immediately and
continue until candidates are identified.
