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
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.
