FOUR POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AND TWO PhD POSITIONS 
for work on PLANT-SPIDER MITE INTERACTION are 
available beginning September 1, 2009, in the 
labs of Miodrag and Vojislava Grbic at the Dept. 
of Biology, The University of Western Ontario, 
Canada (http://www.uwo.ca/).

A joint multidisciplinary effort funded by Genome 
Canada that combines genomics, bioinformatics, 
genetics, biochemistry, population biology, plant 
biotechnology and plant breeding will open new 
opportunities to dissect interactions between 
plants and herbivores on the whole genome level.

This work builds on the whole genome sequencing 
project of the spider mite Tetranychus urticae 
(JGI: 
http://www.jgi.doe.gov/sequencing/why/50028.html) 
and is part of the international collaboration 
with the groups of Prof. Yves Van de Peer (VIB, 
Flanders Institute for Biotechnology, Gent, 
Belgium), Prof. Maria Navajas (INRA, Montpellier, 
France), and Prof. Isabel Diaz and Dr Félix 
Ortego (CSIC, Institute and Universidad 
Politécnica de Madrid, Spain), Prof. José Miguel 
Martínez-Zapater (CNB, Madrid, Spain) and Prof. 
Richard Clark (University of Utah, USA) (OGI: 
http://www.ontariogenomics.ca/research/project/334).

Strongly motivated candidates with demonstrated 
expertise in genetics, molecular biology, 
bioinformatics, genomics and/or plant-pest 
interactions, who are willing to be engaged in 
international collaboration, are encouraged to 
apply. Funding for this position is secured for 
four years.

Please forward applications including a 
curriculum vitae and contact information of two 
senior scientist referees by e-mail to 
vgrbic from uwo.ca. Please, put "Genome Canada-funded 
positions" in the subject line.
