Laurent Zimmerli

Two Postdoctoral Positions, National Taiwan University.

1) A three-year postdoctoral position is available in Laurent  
Zimmerli?s lab at the National Taiwan University in Taipei. The  
position is available immediately. We are interested in Arabidopsis  
stress perception. The xenobiotic beta amino-butyric acid (BABA)  
enhances Arabidopsis stress resistance by potentiating plant defense  
mechanisms, a still poorly understood phenomenon called ?priming?. The  
research will focus on the characterization of newly discovered genes  
involved in BABA-priming. The candidate should have a good  
understanding of plant stress and developmental biology. Candidates  
with strong skills in Arabidopsis molecular genetics are preferred.  
Proven ability to write scientific papers is desirable. Chinese  
language skills are NOT required and international scientists are  
encouraged to apply.

2) We are also looking for a candidate willing to apply for a two-year  
postdoctoral position in Laurent Zimmerli?s lab through a grant  
application. To maximize grant application success the candidate  
should have published (or accepted for publication) at least one  
article as first author in an international peer reviewed journal (IF  
 > 4). The project involves the characterization of Arabidopsis  
mutant(s) defective in nonhost resistance. Applicants must have  
expertise in plant pathology and molecular genetics. The working  
language in the lab is English, thus international scientists are  
encouraged to apply.

The National Taiwan University is the most renowned university in  
Taiwan and provides excellent conditions for research. This university  
is located in Taipei, a vibrant and amazing city. Taiwan offers great  
recreation opportunities such as mountain hiking, snorkeling and nice
