Post-doc Position in Plant Molecular Biology Regulation of Plant Nutrient Transport During Starvation

Post-doc Position in Plant Molecular Biology Regulation of Plant Nutrient Transport During Starvation

JMU - Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg

Würzburg, Germany

The Dröge-Laser lab offers a post-doc position at the University of Würzburg, Germany, preferentially with background knowledge on plant molecular biology or physiology. The applicant will be part of a small international team focussing on plant stress signalling, transcriptional control and pathogen defence.

Project description:

In plants, nutrients like carbohydrates and amino acids need to be allocated between source and sink tissues to assure sufficient supply and survival. Particularly in response to energy limiting conditions, a tight co-ordination of energy homeostasis and nutrient allocation is required. This project focussed on the regulation of nutrient transport upon starvation, combining studies on transcriptional regulation and transporter physiology. 

Methods:

Genome editing by CRISPR/Cas9, promoter analyses in protoplasts, transcription factor binding assays, RNAseq, ChIPseq, confocal microscopy, metabolic analyses, transporter physiology.
