[Closes 4 Sep 2017] Post-doctoral Research Associate position in the development of optogenetic sensors and actuators

A position is available in Dr Alexander Jones' group at the Sainsbury Laboratory, Cambridge University, to work on sensing and perturbing phytohormone patterning, in a minimally invasive manner in live plants,

The development and application of these high-resolution technologies opens the door to obtaining a cellular-level understanding of molecular events in vivo.

This project focuses on sensing and perturbing phytohormone patterning, in a minimally invasive manner in live plants, by developing and optimizing FRET biosensors for high-resolution measurements and optogenetic actuators for high-resolution spatiotemporal control.

Candidates who have, or are close to obtaining, a PhD in plant biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, systems biology, or related field and have expertise in molecular biology, assay development and microscopy are welcome to apply.

Closing date: 4 Sept.
