Postdoctoral position starting 1/2013, funded initially for 2 years
Within the Dusseldorf-Cologne Excellence cluster, a postdoctoral positon
will be available to investigate the transcriptional control of plant
meristem functions and their evolutionary origin. The postdoctoral scientist
will mainly work at the Heinrich-Heine University in Dusseldorf, but in
close collaboration with research teams at the Max-Planck-Institute for
Plant Breeding in Cologne and the Research Center Julich. The project will
comprise plant phenotyping, tissue and RNA isolation via laser
microdissection and application of next-generation sequencing technologies.
The postdoctoral researcher will team up with computer scientists and
mathematicians for data analysis and interpretation.
The position also offers the possibility to apply for independent research
projects. Career development will be strongly supported through dedicated
postdoctoral programmes of the excellence cluster. Candidates should have a
solid background in plant evolution and development.
