Functional study of the LaCCR1 gene coding for LRR-RLK receptor kinase and controlling cluster root development in white lupin. A post-doc position is available from June/September 2021 in the Plasticity group (Group Leader: Benjamin PERET) for 12 months (funding available for a total of up to 3 years).
The candidate will lead a research project in the context of the MicroLUP ANR project (2020-24) that aims at studying the role of miRNAs in controlling cluster root development in white lupin. The post-doc will use recently identified ccr and ncr mutants that display altered cluster root development in the context of long-distance signalling. Positional cloning of the LaCCR1 gene identified a LRR-RLK receptor kinase that will be the basis of the investigation for the functional characterisation of the pathway controlling cluster root formation. miRNAs transcriptomics approaches are underway to characterize the impact of ccr mutants on a list of target miRNAs. This project is a collaboration with the group of Martin Crespi (IPS2 Saclay, France) and the EPITRANS platform (setting up a TILLING population for white lupin).
We are looking for a highly motivated and dynamic candidate, able to work as part of a research team, with a strong sense of collaborative work. The selected candidate should demonstrate experience in plant functional biology (Legume models appreciated). Additional skills amongst the following are expected: root phenotyping, genetic transformation, expression analysis, imaging, bioinformatics (basic notions), molecular biology, in vitro culture.
“Development and Plasticity of the Root System” group, UMR BPMP, Campus INRA/SupAgro, Montpellier, France.
The Plasticity team aims at understanding the fundamental mechanisms of root development and their control by the environment. We use two plant model systems: Arabidopsis and white lupin (Lupinus albus). This position is part of a project that will better characterize recently identified genes controlling cluster root formation in white lupin.
