A two year post-doctoral position with the possibility for extension for additional year is available at Umeå Plant Science Center starting immediately to work on the role of secretion of auxin carriers and cell wall components in regulation of cell elongation in model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. The project builds on previous work in the lab: Gendre et al PNAS (2011), Boutte et al PNAS (2013) and Gendre et al Plant Cell (2013). We have isolated several cell elongation mutants in Arabidopsis in which components of vesicular trafficking machinery are defective and hormonal responses are altered. The project aims to characterise these mutants using cell biological and biochemical and genetical approaches. The applicant must have a strong background in use of confocal microscopy and molecular biology and experience of working with Arabidopsis is essential.
