Postdoctoral Position Available in INRA Versailles, France

A post-doctoral researcher position is available at INRA Versailles 
(Institut Jean-Pierre Bourgin). The project involves the groups of 
Catherine Rameau and Fabien Nogue and will consist in the creation of 
Orobanche resistant rapeseed using biotechnology approaches.
The parasitic plant, Orobanche is a major agriculture pest around the 
Mediterranean sea where it constitutes a major cause of crop damage. 
Strigolactones are small molecules exuded in the rhizosphere which 
trigger seed germination of  Orobanche. The strategy proposed is to 
obtain rapeseed plants which do not produce strigolactones from roots. 
The miRNA strategy and gene targeting using the meganucleases technology 
will be used in this project.
The position will use molecular genetics and plant cell biology.
For a complete position description and application instructions please 
contact Fabien.Nogue from versailles.inra.fr.
