Principal Investigator: Prof. dr hab. Michał Jasiński
Research topic: We would like to offer the position of Assistant Professor
(Post-Doc) within the OPUS 20 project (2020/39/B/NZ9/00784) entitled "
ABCG driven transport of phenylpropanoids in Medicago truncatula - a versatile
but adapted scenario.”, funded by the National Science Center. By broad and
multiple analyses proposed in this research we want: (i) determine a
sequential feature connecting selected transporter(s) with a given
molecule(s) and (ii) understand/propose the meaning of such an adaptation
regarding distribution of endogenous molecules notably phenylpropanoids.
Results of this study represent an added value to the effort aiming
deciphering determinants liable for ABC(G) transporters action in legumes.
Equally importantly, such data could also facilitate more precise metabolic
engineering of phenylpropanoids in plants often relying on defined
