The laboratory is looking for two postdoctoral scientists to join a TEAM project entitled “Plant chemical defense based on mustard oil bomb”. Successful candidates will join a project that aims to understand detailed molecular aspects of a plant defense system based on glucosinolate-myrosinase system.

Key responsibilities include:
1. Isolation/validation of newly identified ER body mutants
2. Expression analysis of ER body related genes in the mutants
3. Insect feeding experiment to test mutant phenotype
4. Identification of mutant genes
