Lecturer in Applied Plant Molecular Biology
Newcastle University - Faculty of Science, Agriculture & Engineering
Closes:	30th June 2016

The School of Agriculture, Food and Rural Development wishes to appoint 
a lecturer in Applied Plant Molecular Biology to conduct strategic and 
adaptive research and associated teaching.
Working with a newly appointed Professor of Molecular Agri-diagnostics, 
you will undertake research that addresses current and emerging 
challenges facing plant production related to sustainability, food 
security, profitability, and climate change.

Supported by its two farms, the school is developing innovative and 
multidisciplinary approaches to precision agriculture. As such, we are 
particularly interested in candidates who can translate molecular and 
cellular level insight into plant growth and development into 
agricultural solutions.

You should have a strong record of research in one or more of the 
following areas of plant science:
> molecular biology
> responses to the environment
> pathology
> surveillance and signalling
> cell wall biology
> polysaccharide biosynthesis, modification and degradation
> glycobiology.

You should also have been awarded a PhD in plant science, molecular 
biology or biochemistry. This is a key role in the School, linking to 
our wider portfolio of interests encompassing crop and livestock 
research, rural development, food science and health. The School prides 
itself in its interdisciplinary approach and applicants open to working 
with both natural and social scientists are particularly welcome.

For any informal enquiries please contact Professor Robert Edwards. Tel: 
(0)191 208 6869 or email: Robert.edwards from ncl.ac.uk
