Postdoctoral Fellow - Developmental Biology

Location:	Heidelberg, Germany
Staff Category:	Postdoctoral Fellow
Contract Duration:	2 years
Grading:	N/A
Closing Date:	15 September 2011
Reference number:	HD_00125
Job Description
The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is one of the highest =
ranked scientific research organisations in the world. The Headquarters =
Laboratory is located in Heidelberg (Germany) and the outstations are in =
Grenoble (France), Hamburg (Germany), Hinxton (UK) and Monterotondo =
(Italy).
=20
Applications are invited for a two-year ERC funded post-doc position =
(extendable) to study plant development in the group of Dr. Marcus =
Heisler. The project=92s goal is understand the global regulatory =
network underlying the initiation and differentiation of Arabidopsis =
lateral organs. The approach will be to 1) apply standard techniques =
such as FACS/RNA-seq, ChIP-seq and proteomics to assess expression =
patterns, identify target genes and interaction partners for =
transcription factors involved in organ development as well as to 2) aid =
in a collaborative effort to develop single-cell transcriptomics =
approaches.
Qualifications and Experience
The ability to work independently and take responsibility for his/her =
own project as well as to work together with an interdisciplinary team =
is required. The candidate should have a strong background and =
understanding of molecular biology and gene expression analysis =
(qPCR/RNA-seq) and preferably also have expertise in bioinformatics =
methods. Motivation to work in a multidisciplinary and international =
environment is fundamental to this position. Good communication and =
presentation skills and fluency in English are expected.
Application Instructions
Please apply online through www.embl.org/jobs
Additional Information
EMBL is an inclusive, equal opportunity employer offering attractive =
conditions and benefits appropriate to an international research =
