POSTDOCTORAL POSITION INVESTIGATING THE GENETIC AND MECHANICAL BASIS OF
A position is available for a Postdoctoral Research Associate to work on
a BBSRC-funded project investigating the mechanical and genetic basis of
seed vigour in the lab of Dr. George Bassel, University of Birmingham,
This multidisciplinary project will integrate molecular genetics with
quantitative 3D microscopy and cellular mechanical modelling to identify
genetic and mechanical factors driving post-embryonic growth in plants.
Together with industrial partner Syngenta, findings in the model species
_Arabidopsis _will be translated to the crop species _Brassica oleracea_
leading to creation of novel vigour-enhancing germplasm.
The successful candidate will have a PhD and/or postdoctoral experience
in plant-based research using molecular genetics and confocal
microscopy. A keen interest and desire to learn and develop novel
computational analyses of plant development is beneficial, and excellent
organization and interpersonal skills necessary. This position will be
supported by a dedicated half time research technician.
This is a full-time position, fixed-term for 3 years, and an excellent
opportunity to join an innovative interdisciplinary research team.
