The Research School of Biology at The Australian National University (ANU) seeks to appoint one or two highly motivated Postdoctoral Fellows. The positions will be for a period of two (2) years with the possibility of an extension, subject to funding availability.
The appointee(s) will be expected to lead research in two areas of plant science: 1) regulation of secondary metabolism (e.g. carotenoids), plastid communications and identification of novel signalling molecules, or 2) RNA structural biology, RNA modelling and epigenetic regulation. State-of-the-art equipment for phenomics, genomics, epigenomics, proteomics and metabolomics as well as bioinformatics facilities are available at the ANU.
The successful applicants should have extensive experience in molecular, genetic and epigenetic biology as well as metabolism. The appointee should demonstrate a willingness to lead research towards discovering new signalling pathways that control secondary metabolism (e.g. carotenoids). Experience in plant biology is essential.
