Post doc a Nottingham UK per studiare come le piante rispondono ai bassi livelli di ossigeno

  • 30 Nov 2018

Closing date 2 January

A Postdoctoral Research Fellow is required to undertake research as part of a Leverhulme Trust-funded grant: “Why did a unique oxygen-sensing mechanism evolve in land plants?” The successful applicant will use genetical, biochemical and physiological approaches in combination with 3D, non-destructive microCT (X-ray) to understand the evolution of oxygen sensing in land plants and its physiological consequences. This exciting project builds directly on our previous work identifying and characterising the molecular mechanism of oxygen-sensing in plants though the N-end rule pathway of targeted proteolysis (eg. Gibbs et al Nature 2011, Abbas et al Current Biology 2015).

Applicants must have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD in a relevant area of biology, with an interest in working as part of a team.
This is a full time, fixed term post until 31 December 2021. Job share arrangements may be considered.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Michael Holdsworth tel: 0115 9516046 Or email Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.
