Open Postdoctoral Research Fellow or Research Assistant position in Signal Transduction and Immunity Group
Signal Transduction and Immunity Group at the Shanghai Center for Plant Stress Biology (PSC), Chinese Academy of Sciences is seeking an enthusiastic, highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Fellow or Research Assistant.
Our ultimate goal is to create a new plant immune system. We have been working on disease resistance genes and the small GTPase OsRac1, which are major components in rice immunity. A comprehensive understanding of R protein and OsRac1 functions would allow the design of plant immune system in order to control serious pathogens. To address this issue, they have been investigating rice immunity as a model system with a combination of several cutting edge technologies including biochemical analysis, live imaging and gene targeting.
PSC, located in the picturesque Chenshan Botanical Garden, is a new national institution in China for fostering world-class research and nurturing next-generation scientists in the field of plant biology.
Our group is now recruiting applicants for positions in the following research areas:
1) Structural study of plant immune receptors
2) Receptor like cytoplasmic kinase in PAMP-triggered immunity
One Postdoctoral Researcher position or one Research Assistant is available.
1) Curriculum Vitae
2) List of publications
3) Personal statement outlining achievements and research goals/aspirations.
