Duties:

There is a need for new sources of resistance in order to counteract the evolution of pathogenic microbes and to develop sustainable agricultural practices. Pivotal in this development is to better understand plant-pathogen interactions and the defence-response mechanisms. To identify new players in plant-pathogen interactions for further functional assessments, we have generated quantitative proteomics data from three different immunity reactions in potato. Now we have data suggesting that three of them are directly involved in immune signalling and stress signalling. One of them seems to be directly involved in the balance between defence and photosynthesis.

The molecular mechanisms at play will be studied and validated by molecular and biological assays, including CRISPR/Cas9. Experiments will mainly be carried out in laboratory and controlled green-house environments, but also in field trials, with both genetically modified (GM) and gene edited plants being used in the field study.

The applicant will be a part of a research group of approximately 5-10 people. https: // www. researchgate.net/profile/Erik-Andreasson/publications

Qualifications:

A PhD degree, or similar university higher degree, in molecular biology, plant science or plant pathology, preferably including protein work. Experiences of independent studies as well as working in a group are preferable. Good knowledge of spoken and written English is required.
