> Expressions of Interest - Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellowship Programme
>> The Plant Productivity Group at the University of Essex would like to invite Expressions of Interest from postdoctoral researchers of any nationality (at any career stage) to apply for a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship. We are looking to support a small number of high-quality applications under the new round and would welcome expressions of interest from interested researchers, particularly, but not exclusively, in the following areas:
>>> The development and use of a suite of fluorescent protein redox biosensors to probe chloroplast metabolism under fluctuating environmental conditions
>>> The use of fluorescent biosensors for the development of sentinel crops
>>> The sub-specialisation of chloroplasts appressed and unattached to the nucleus.
>>> The manipulation of guard cell metabolism to optimise stomatal conductance,
> photosynthesis and water use efficiency.
>>> The development and use of imaging technologies to phenotype plant performance and
> select traits of interest.
>>> The impact of fluctuating light on photosynthetic acclimation and plant performance.
>> More details about the scheme is here and in the attached document
>http://ec.europa.eu/research/mariecurieactions/>>> Submitting an Expression of Interest
>> Interested applicants should submit a one-page CV, an outline of the proposed research (maximum 1,000 words) and a cover letter highlighting why you believe this area of work will be suited to the Plant Productivity Group as the host institution (maximum 500 words).
>> Please submit these in Word format to by Friday 1st July to Dr Beverley Wilkinson, Research Manager, School of Biological Sciences, University of Essex, Wivenhoe Park, Colchester, CO4 3SQ, UK E-mail: bwilk from essex.ac.uk>> <Plant Productivity Group Marie Curie fellowship 2017 .pdf>
