King Abdullah University of Science and Technology: Postdoc Positions:
Biological and Environmental Science and Engineering Division (postdoc)
Jan 12, 2022
The Salt Lab from Prof. Mark Tester (https: // saltlab.kaust.edu.sa/) is
building a team to work on a recently funded project to study the wild genetic
diversity in Chenopodium species for improvement of heat stress tolerance in
quinoa. In this project, comparative physiological and molecular analyses will
be used to identify key genetic factors governing heat stress tolerance in
wild relatives of quinoa that could help extend the cultivation of quinoa into
hotter climates, and mitigate the risks associated with climate change in
current areas of cultivation.
The Salt Lab is based in the Centre for Desert Agriculture
(cda.kaust.edu.sa/about) at KAUST which offers a supportive and vibrant team
of international scientists. The CDA is embedded in the BESE Division
(bese.kaust.edu.sa), which maintains world-class research facilities
including microscopy, analytical chemistry, third generation sequencing and
plant growth facilities.
Screening of applicants will start immediately, and the positions remain open
