2 Postdoctoral Researcher positions in the field of Brassinosteroid signalling in abiotic stress responses
The Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) is looking for two motivated Postdoctoral Researchers to join the Brassinosteroid Signaling in Plant Development research group, led by researcher Ana I. Caño-Delgado (http://canolab.cragenomica.es)
The selected postdoctoral scientists will join different academic and translational projects in the Ana I. Caño-Delgado´s lab to: i) decipher the mechanisms for Brassinosteroid signaling in growth and adaptation to drought stress in Arabidopsis; ii) Use molecular genetics and chemical biology approaches to translate our findings intocrops, using Sorghum as a model. The research will be framed within the recently funded European Research Council project that was initiated on November 2016 (https://erc.europa.eu/projects-and-results/erc-funded-projects/project/idrica)
Candidates with a PhD in Biological Sciences or related, with high-quality research trajectory and a competitive publication track record are encouraged to apply. The project offers the possibility to incorporate scientists with different profiles and career interests, towards academic research or agricultural application in industry. CRAG has an excellent scientific environment, facilities and resources to perform cutting-edge plant research, in one of the most attractive cities of the world.
The positions are based on an initial 2 Year Postdoctoral contract offered through the European Research Council grant recently funded to Ana I Caño-Delgado Lab.
Successful candidates will have access to research facilities, expert technical support and international collaborations.
Interested candidates should send application through:
For informal inquiries please e-mail Ana I. Caño-Delgado to: email@example.com
In 2015, CRAG received the distinction of “Severo Ochoa Center of Excellence” for multidisciplinary research in fundamental and applied plant biology. CRAG building was inaugurated in 2011 offering the most state of the art infrastructures for plant molecular and cellular biology research and it is located at the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB), and currently hosts above 200 scientists from all over the world.
CRAG holds the “Human Resources Excellence in Research” accreditation, which reflects CRAG's commitment to conduct transparent and merit-based recruitment and appraisal procedures and to provide attractive working conditions.
