Postdoctoral Opportunity


A Postdoctoral Researcher Position is available in the area of
RNA silencing and viruses.

Location : IBMP, Strasbourg, France

The successful candidate will join an ongoing 
programme of work aimed at functional dissection 
of the role of small RNA in tissue tropism of 
plant viruses. The objective is to unravel a 
potential link between RNA silencing and 
confinement of poleroviruses to vascular tissues 
(where these viruses are naturally present). To 
this purpose cell-type specific siRNA profiling 
of healthy and infected Arabidopsis thaliana 
wild-type will be undertaken and analysed to 
identify siRNA that may target host genes and 
contribute to viral partitioning and 
pathogenicity.

Essential scientific skills required are in the 
fields of molecular biology, plant genetics and 
bioinformatics. Strong motivation, good 
organisational skills and ability to work in a 
team are requested.

Important: the candidate should hold his/her PhD from a non French University,
come to work to Strasbourg for the first time
and be aged of less than 35 years old.

The starting date is between the 1st of september and the 31st of october 2009.
