Postdoctoral position in epigenetic control of development
A position for a full-time postdoctoral researcher is available in the laboratory of Prof. Lars Hennig at the Department of Plant Biology and Forest Genetics, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (www.vbsg.slu.se<http://www.vbsg.slu.se>).
A multidisciplinary approach using a combination of molecular, cell biology, biochemistry and genomics methods will be developed to study Polycomb Group proteins and regulation of flowering time.
We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a PhD degree, a strong background in plant biology, molecular biology or biochemistry, and a good record of peer-reviewed publications. Excellent writing and oral communication skills are essential.
Previous experience in epigenetics and genomics is a plus, but not a formal requirement.
The laboratory is based in Uppsala, Sweden's fourth largest city. Uppsala has two universities with together ~40'000 students and is less than an hour away from Stockholm, the Venice-of-the-North. Stockholm international airport is also close by, 20 minutes by train from Uppsala, and has frequent connections to the rest of Europe as well as to other continents.
Applications, including (1) CV with full publication list, (2) a description of research experiences, (3) a statement of scientific interests as well as (4) contact information of three referees should be submitted by e-mail as a single pdf file to Lars.Hennig from slu.se. Reviews of applications will begin immediately and the position will remain open until filled.
