(*VIB/Department of Plant Systems Biology/University of Ghent, Ghent,
Belgium) *funded by the *European ITN FP7 Project BRAVISSIMO
(BRAssinosteroid Venture Increasing StudentS' International MObility).
The aim of the proposed research is to study the trafficking of membrane
proteins in the model plant Arabidopsis. The projects will focus on
functional analysis of the endocytosis of brassinosteroid receptor
complex and further understanding of its significance for
brassinosteroid signal transduction and plant growth.
We are looking for a motivated and hard working young scientist with a
solid background in cell and molecular biology, basic skills in
biochemistry, a deep interest in receptor signalling and cell growth,
and a nice and collegial working spirit. Experience with plants,
/Arabidopsis/, GFP and microscopy is an advantage but not required.
The applicants must have a master degree or equivalent university
diploma in biology, molecular biology or biochemistry and be in the
first four years (full-time equivalent) of their research careers,
starting at the date of obtaining the degree which would formally
entitle them to embark on a doctorate.
The positions are available for non-Belgium nationalities only
Good knowledge in English is obligatory.
