>Post-Doctoral position

A post-Doc position will be available (december 2002) in the Laboratory of
Plant Biochemsitry and Molecular Physiology at Agro-M/INRA in Montpellier

The research topic will focus on the molecular responses of root nitrate
uptake to N limitation in Arabidopsis thaliana. The work will combine the
use of mutants and transformants, of cDNA macro-arrays, and of refined
functional assays of nitrate transport (15N labellings). The goals are to
identify genes and regulations involved in the adaptive responses of
nitrate uptake to N stress, and to integrate these responses with those at
the root architecture level.

This project is part of a Research Training Network funded by the E.U.
(, which will provide the opportunity
to the successful applicant to interact with leading European groups in the
field of nitrogen transport and metabolism in plants.

- Ph.D in plant molecular biology/physiology, with possibly a strong
experience in gene expression studies.
- European (E.U.), non french, applicants.
