Positions available

Please note that a background in forward genetics or electrophysiology will be helpful in order to maximise your chance of obtaining funding since this would be coherent with the lab objectives.

PostDoc Position

One position available starting from July 2017 onwards

 

Title : Early events in the activation of JA synthesis

Principal methods : Genome editing, site-directed mutagenesis, qPCR, defense bioassays.

Description : This post is funded for two years as a collaboration between Prof. E.E. Farmer and Prof. Jean-Luc Wolfender (University of Geneva). The project aims to understand events that initiate JA synthesis in contact cells and in companion cells. Regulatory proteins (including enzymes and ions channels) will be expressed in these cells to block or activate JA production.

Obligations : Contribution to supervising one PhD student working in jasmonate measurements, and possibly supervision of a Master student.

To apply : Please send a letter of motivation, a CV and two reference letters to Debora.Zoia[@]unil.ch (administrative staff). Please use ‘PostDoc_Candidacy_EEF_YourName’ in your Email Subject Line. We will respond only to complete dossiers.

Deadline: Open until filled

 

PhD Studentship

One position available starting from July 2017 onwards

 

Title: Calcium dynamics in the vasculature of wounded plants

Principal methods: Ca2+ imaging, confocal microscopy, genome editing.

Description: The project will use the strong expertise in cell biology of our department to study calcium fluxes in the vasculature of wounded plants and relate this to activation of the jasmonate pathways. A willingness to spend some time training in other laboratories is needed.

Obligations: Contribution to teaching in practical classes and general lab duties.

To apply: Please send a letter of motivation, a CV and two reference letters to Debora.Zoia[@]unil.ch (administrative staff). Please use ‘PhD_Candidacy_EEF_YourName’ in your Email Subject Line. We will respond only to complete dossiers.

Deadline: Open until filled
