Postdoctoral Researcher Positions at the CBGP (UPM-INIA)
(CBGP-Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence Research Program)
The Centro de Biotecnologia y Genómica de Plantas (CBGP, UPM-INIA) is seeking for outstanding candidates for 9 postdoctoral researcher positions in the three CBGP Transversal Scientific Programs (Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes, Improving Plant Response to Biotic Stress, and Empowering Plant Nutrition) and in the Computational, Systems Biology, and Genomics Program (CSBGP). The CBGP (UPM-INIA) is a research institute recently recognized as Severo Ochoa (SO) Center of Excellence.
The Transversal Scientific Programs (TSPs) will combine the expertise of CBGP research groups that are working in different research lines. The TSP postdoctoral research positions are associated to the following projects:
TSP1 - Plant Response to Biotic Stresses
A virological approach to biocontrol Botrytis cinerea, a plant pathogenic fungus also relevant to human health (EoI-TSP1-01)
TSP2 - Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes
Exploring plant adaptation to climate change (EoI-TSP2-04)
Molecular bases of circadian and seasonal RbohD priming (EoI-TSP2-08)
Combined genetic approaches to disclose seed growth and germination control by indolic compounds (EoI-TSP2-09)
Mechanistic principles underlying dynamics of plant growth compensation by low temperatures (EoI-TSP2-10)
TSP3 - Empowering Plant Nutrition
Host- and bacterial-factors relevant for the interaction of Rhizobiales with eukaryotic hosts (EoI-TSP3-01)
Using Microbial Dark Matter and Computational Models to Streamline Synthetic Nitrogenase Pathways (EoI-TSP3-5)
The novel CsBGP initiative aims to develop new computational/genomics tools by applying systems-level, multi-scale, information-driven and model-driven approaches. The CsBGP postdoctoral research positions are associated to the following projects:
Evolutionary Synthetic Biology Of Microbes (EoI-CsBGP-03)
Bioinformatic analysis of genomics data (EoI-CsBGP-04)
* Nature careers
Deadline for application: June 10th.
About the CBGP: The mission of the CBGP (UPM-INIA) is to carry out fundamental and strategic research in plant science and in microorganisms interacting with plants. The research is focused in understanding important biological process such as plant development, the interaction of plants with the environment and the mechanisms of plant nutrition. In addition, the CBGP is interested in developing and using computational biology tools to achieve its goals. The acquired knowledge is used to tackle major problems of the agriculture and forestry, and to develop novel technological solutions. CBGP (UPM-INIA) also has an educational role and is a reference center for training scientists and Master's and Bachelor-level students, in plant biotechnology and genomics.
