A new position has opened within Root2Res, as the University of Dundee aims to gaining novel insights into the molecular basis of root adaptation to the environment. A new postdoctoral research assistant will be granted a fixed-term contract as part of the collaboration between two laboratories, Bulgarelli’s and Hein’s, both part of the School of Life Sciences. All candidates must submit their application before March by following this link

The chosen scientist will contribute to the team based at Dundee by investigating plant microbiota and its contribution to climate modification resilience. Priorities include obtaining metagenomic DNA from plant tissues and social specimens; developing molecular probes targeting microbial genes; next generation sequencing library preparation; and in-silico analysis of microbiome datasets with high performance computers. 

The School of Life Sciences at the University of Dundee is a world-renowned academic institution with over 900 staff across 60 countries, with state-of-the-art facilities for multi-national, collegiate and diverse environment. The Bulgarelli’s lab and the Heins’s lab are part of the Division of Plant Sciences based at the James Hutton Institute on the outskirt of Dundee, Scotland.
