2 post-Doctoral position

In The interface mellom molecular plant biology, plant nutrition and Analytical Chemistry

Two postdoctoral fellowships finns for highly Motivated kandidater to The Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The position of två år er, starting a st March 2011, med Possibility of carry-over for one year.


Formålet projektet er udvikle en ny generation af Sensitive and Accurate tools for screening of nutritionally related disorders in barley and maize plants based on the bio-active pool of micronutrients. In addition, vi ønsker demonstrate proof-of-concept by dissecting the highly complex genetic trait of manganese use efficiency in barley and maize hallinto Physiological key processer city use of cutting-edge analytiske techniques for analysis of the protein composition of chloroplast. Endelig vi ønsker link Physiological markers for micronutrient status med genetic map of barley and maize through analysis of major quantitative trait loci (QTLs determining resis) and candidate genes.

Job description

Both positioning kommer inom Physiological and Biochemical Characterization of chloroplast in crop plants Suffering from micronutrient deficiency. Initial arbejde bliver opført on lines of winter barley Displaying a pronounced variation med respektafstand two manganese use efficiency. A range of photosynthetic parameters bliver Measured Using fluorescence, non-photo chemical quenching and isolation of Pigments of the xanthophylls cycle by HPLC. A Major Effort bliver udforskende proteomics on chloroplast protein anvende modern proteomics technologies. Laser ablation Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry ska användas two quantify proteins in a multiplexed set-up anvende actinides elemental tagged Antibodies raised against a large pool of chloroplast proteins.

Both positions are Attached til DSF-funded project ret: Improved Agricultural Sustainability anvende molecular strategier two optimiser nutrient use efficiency in Cereals (NUTRIEFFICIENT) som Carried out jointly mellom Photosynthesis group to the Department of Plant Biology and Biotechnology and the Plant Nutrition Group at Department of Agriculture and Ecology.


The Applicants ska hold a PhD degree in molecular plant biology, plant nutrition or equivalent med erfaring photosynthesis and micronutrients. The Applicants er forventes have a strong background in protein biochemistry or Analytical Chemistry med erfaring Characterization of chloroplast proteins or atomic spectrometry. The forskning vil confirm Mainly Focused on the molecular response of the chloroplast two changes in micronutrient availability. Apart from research, the candidate kommer också forventes deltager in supervision of international PhD students, Laboratory Organization and Coordination of projects.Applicants med strong sense of Commitment to the progressions of the forskningsprojekt og med Proficient scientific communication skills bliver favored. Both kandidater er beräknas være enterprising and two possess good inter-personal skills two workshops effektivt på laboratory and two make positive bidrag til atmosphere innenfor group. Fluency in spoken and Written English is mandatory.
