species. The project will focus on the mechanistic role of such interactions in the
regulation of floral ontogeny.
A candidate with strong molecular biology skills is required for this position.
Experience with transgenic plant studies, recombinant yeast systems and/or recombinant
antibody phage display technology would be a particular advantage. The position is for an
initial period of 2 years with possibilities of extension to a third year subject to
