Postdoc Researcher: Unravelling Jasmonate Signalling in Tomato Roots Through Molecular Interactomics

VIB

Ghent, Belgium

Job description

For this position the candidate will be involved in a project that aims at developing and utilising a platform to visualise and map the protein-protein interaction network that determines the response of tomato roots to the stress hormones jasmonate and salicylic acid, as well as to beneficial and parasitic organisms living in its rhizosphere. The candidate is expected to take an active and leading role in the implementation of a versatile and complementary tomato interactomics platform that will be based on affinity-purification-mass-spectrometry and yeast-two-hybrid-Seq. Ultimately, this platform will also serve the whole tomato research community.

This project is a collaborative project together with the research groups of Prof. Sofie Goormachtig and Prof. Lieve Gheysen, both also located at VIB and/or Ghent University, and with which the candidate will also closely interact.

The ideal candidate will have a master and PhD degree in bio-engineering, biochemistry/biotechnology or molecular biology. A publication record in peer-reviewed journals and/or expertise in the areas of plant molecular biology, plant biotechnology, functional genomics, proteomics and/or plant-stress responses, as well as experience in guidance of master and PhD students is an asset. The position is immediately available.
