Australian National University is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening postdoc position in plant pathology. The deadline for applying is March 20, 2019.

Classification: Postdoctoral Fellow (Academic Level A)

Salary package: $71,509 to $90,215 per annum plus 17% superannuation

Terms: Full time, Continuing (Contingent Funded)

The ANU College of Science (CoS) comprises: the Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics, the Research School of Biology, the Research School of Chemistry, the Research School of Earth Science, the Fenner School of Environment and Society, the Mathematical Sciences Institute, the Research School of Physics and Engineering, and the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. Staff and students within the ANU College of Science conduct research and delivers a research-led education program that encompasses the entire breadth of the sciences, supported by extensive international networks and by world-class facilities. The College has a strong tradition of research excellence that has fostered distinguished Nobel Laureates and Kyoto Prize winners and that trains scientific leaders in disciplines in which the ANU is consistently ranked in the top twenty in the world.

The Rathjen laboratory at ANU has funding for a three (3) year postdoctoral fellow position to understand the interface between molecular plant physiology and immunity. This project is to investigate the role of receptor kinases in plant sugar signalling and immunity. The appointed fellow will work within a supportive research group studying molecular plant pathology and pathogen genomics. The aim of the research is to understand how pathogens manipulate nutrient flows via membrane-located receptors and transporters. The project will access a range of techniques from protein biochemistry through transcriptomics to confocal microscopy. The overall aim is to understand these process so that they can be manipulated to improve disease resistance against important crop pathogens.
