[Closes 13 Feb 2019] Postdoc position in engineering complex traits in plants


Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Scientist to join the Laboratory of Dr Nicola Patron to work on a project to engineer plant responses to nitrogen availability. The aim of this project is to deploy genome engineering tools to introduce multiplexed targeted mutations in specific coding and non-coding regions of a group of plant genes predicted to coordinate large-scale transcriptional responses to environmental nitrogen availability. The post-holder will be based in the Patron Lab at the Earlham Institute, (Norwich Research Park, UK) and will work in collaboration with the Brady and Segal Labs (UCDavis).

Salary on appointment will be within the range £31,250 to £38,100 per annum depending on qualifications and experience. This is a fulltime post for a contract of 23 months from 1st April 2019.
