Postdoctoral positions in genomics of plant-pest interaction

The GAP-M international consortium (details available at

(Grbic et al. Nature. 2011 Nov 23;479(7374):487-92, 
seeks highly motivated postdoctoral candidates to work on the 
genomics of plant-pest interaction.

We are seeking a postdoctoral candidates capable of working 
independently and with previous experience in: 1) plant 
(tomato/Arabidopsis) biology and genetics; 2) arthropod 
biology/genomics, and 3) bioinformatics. The work will be performed 
between broader consortium members including labs in Belgium (Gent), 
Spain (Madrid & Logrono), Canada (London, ON) and France. The ability 
of travel is essential. The funding for the project is available for 
the next four years.
