General information

Reference : UMR5004-CECABA-022
Workplace : MONTPELLIER
Date of publication : Tuesday, March 23, 2021
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 24 months
Expected date of employment : 1 June 2021
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : Between 2675€ and 3800€ gross / month - depending on experience
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : Indifferent

Missions

The position is open to work in the frame of an ERC advanced project named “HyArchi: Targeting Root Hydraulic Architecture to Improve Crops under Drought “. Research will be carried out under the supervision of Dr Philippe Nacry, in the group of Dr Christophe Maurel in the Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Physiology department (INRAE/CNRS/SupAgro, Montpellier, France).
The HyArchi project focuses on maize roots under water stress with the ultimate goal of optimizing water uptake. It explores novel aspects of their plasticity and provides a multidimensional understanding of their water transport function, by considering the integration of hydraulic, growth and signaling processes within root architecture.

Activities

The aim of the post-doctoral researcher will be to identify the hormonal and molecular components (genes, ncRNAs, peptides, hormones…) involved in local and systemic signaling in response to a locally applied water deficit. Based on a unique split root system already settled in the team, sap and root tissues will be sampled for metabolomics and transcriptomic analysis. A central computational approach will be to build regulatory gene networks to identify master regulators involved in local or systemic responses. The candidate genes will be characterized using functional genomics and molecular physiology in both maize and Arabidopsis.

Skills

The applicant must have a doctoral degree and have demonstrated a research aptitude and autonomy as evidenced by high-level publications. We are seeking a highly motivated and independent scientist with a strong background in computational biology, plant genetics and molecular biology techniques. Expertise in transcriptomic analysis and regulatory gene network inference will be appreciated.
A strong grasp of English and a good team spirit are also essential

Work Context

This institute and the host group have world-wide recognized records in transport and stress physiology (http://www1.montpellier.inra.fr/ibip/bpmp/) and in functional characterization of root system (Shahzad Z et al., 2016, Cell 167:87; Tang et al., 2018, Nat. Commun. 9: 3884, Rosales et al., 2019 Plant Physiol. 180: 2198, Maurel and Nacry, 2020 Nature Plants 6: 744)

Constraints and risks

No specific risk or constraint

Additional Information

Application must include a CV, description of the past researches and the name and contac address of three references. The position will be opened until filled.
