Postdoctoral positions in genomics of plant-pest interaction
The GAP-M international consortium (details available at
that sequenced the genome of the spider mite Tetranychus urticae
(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.
Interested parties should email to vgrbic from uwo.ca and mgrbic from uwo.ca.
