Postdoc Position at University of Cambridge

University of Cambridge is delighted to offer a postdoctoral associate position in biochemistry. This position is available for two years in the first instance. Potential candidates should apply before December 28, 2018.

Applications are invited for a post-doctoral research associate in Imaging Plant Interactions to work with Dr Uta Paszkowski. Based in central Cambridge in the Department of Plant Sciences the successful applicant should be able to start as soon as possible in 2019. The beneficial interaction of plants with endomycorrhizal fungi commences via mutual recognition in the rhizosphere. We recently identified an intracellular receptor complex that is required for perception of beneficial fungi by rice [Gutjahr, Gobbato et al., Science (2015) 350, 1521-1524]. The spatial regulation of the plant receptor is the focus of this study. The projected work will apply a variety of microscopic techniques including live-imaging combined with proteomics and biochemistry to decipher the molecular mechanism underpinning symbiont recognition in rice.

Applicants should have a PhD in field of cell signaling; available knowledge of plant laser scanning confocal microscopy and biochemistry would be advantageous.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 1 year in the first instance.

Please upload a CV and covering letter describing how you meet the post specifications. Contact Uta Paszkowski ( if you have any queries. If you do not receive a response from us one month after the closing date you should consider that your application has not been successful this time.
