We are seeking a highly motivated candidate with a strong interest in plant developmental biology to join our team and help us study the gibberellin signaling pathway, a plant growth hormone. To this end, the researcher will study genetic and molecular approaches in Arabidopsis to investigate the role of a family of transcription factors that are interconnected with GA signaling and that control plant shape. The researcher will benefit from the genetic resources and knowledge of the laboratory as well as from the infrastructure of the institute.
The researcher will be expected to carry out various experimental steps of the project. These activities include:
Generation and phenotypic and molecular analysis of multiple mutants
Performing biochemical protein analysis experiments
Strastistical analysis of transcriptiomic data
In-depth knowledge of phytohormones, ideally gibberellins
Good knowledge of developmental biology
In-depth knowledge of plant experimentation (growth, genetic crossing, plant transformation)
Expertise in molecular and cellular biology and biochemistry
Expertise in CRISPR-Cas9 system to generate loss-of-function mutants
Ability to work independently and write reports
Statistical and communication skills
Collaborative work and team spirit
The researcher will work in the Institute of plant molecular biology (IBMP) in Strasbourg. This CNRS unit studies the fundamental processes of plant life. The institute is composed of 16 research teams, 5 technological platforms and 3 technical services, and about 100 researchers, professors and associates. The researcher will join the team "Gibberellins and adaptation to environment" led by Dr Patrick Achard (CNRS research director), which includes a CNRS research engineer, an assistant professor and two PhD students.
Constraints and risks
The candidate will participate in the newcomers' day during which the safety instructions to be followed will be explained to him/her.
