We are recruiting one highly motivated post-doctoral researcher to work on the elucidation of mechanisms that control the initiation of lateral roots in Arabidopsis thaliana.
The Maizel lab is looking to recruit one highly motivated post-doctoral researcher (m/f/d) to work on the elucidation of mechanisms that control the initiation of lateral roots in Arabidopsis thaliana.
The successful candidate will use a multidisciplinary approach, combining cell biology (confocal & light sheet microscopy), quantitative approaches (image analysis, biophysics) and functional genetics (CrispR/Cas) to understand how plant cells resume growth and reacquire meristematic features.
You hold a Ph.D. in (plant) molecular biology with an emphasis on cell or developmental biology. You have a solid experience in microscopy and some knowledge in image analysis and quantitative approaches (Fiji, R, python). You have published at least one first-author research paper of importance to your current field of research. You take initiative, work independently and co-operatively within a team, and have a hands-on mentality, perseverance, and critical mind-set. You have excellent communication skills and are fluent in English, both orally and in writing.
- A stimulating and supportive international research environment
- Access to state-of-the-art tools and infrastructure within an excellence-based research institute
- Integration into a research team that is committed to a collaborative, trustful research setting
- Various training opportunities to broaden your expertise and (soft) skills
Provide, in a single PDF file labelled with your last and first name:
- A detailed CV, including list of publications
- A one-page summary of past research activities
- A statement describing how your research experiences and interests are aligned with those of the lab.
- The names and contact information of at least two references
The PDF should be uploaded to: https://bit.ly/3ymvyGc
Shortlisted candidates will be invited for an online interview.
Closing date: January 16th 2022 or until the position is filled.
