DIRECTOR OF MAŁOPOLSKA CENTRE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY at Jagiellonian University announces a competition for a Doctoral Student Scholarship in the Plant Molecular Biology Laboratory group at the MAŁOPOLSKA CENTRE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY (project Opus 19, National Science Centre)
Competition for a Doctoral Student Scholarship in the Plant Molecular Biology Laboratory group at the MAŁOPOLSKA CENTRE OF BIOTECHNOLOGY (project Opus 19, National Science Centre)
The Plant Molecular Biology Laboratory (laboratory of Dr Kenji Yamada) is carrying out research analysing the function of plant endomembrane systems such as the endoplasmic reticulum, vacuoles and peroxisomes. The laboratory is looking for a PhD Student to join a OPUS project entitled “Gene Regulatory Mechanism for the Mustard Oil Bomb Defence System of ER Bodies in Brassicaceae”. The successful candidate will join a project that aims to understand detailed molecular aspects of a plant defence system based on glucosinolate-myrosinase system.
Key responsibilities include:
1. Analysis of transcriptional regulation for ER body formation that is involved in glucosinolate-myrosinase defence system
2. Analysis of plant defence with establishing insect-plant or fungi-plant interaction assays
3. Identification of new genes for glucosinolate-myrosinase defence system
4. Cell biological and physiological analysis of newly identified factors in glucosinolate-myrosinase defence
Position: Doctoral Student Scholarship
Unit: Malopolska Centre of Biotechnology
