Qualification Details

The candidate should have a PhD degree in biology, bioinformatics, genetics or any other relevant field. PhD should have obtained not later than 3 years before the application deadline (not including parental leave). A proven experience of bioinformatic skills in analysing and managing large sequencing datasets is highly recommended. Previous experience from research in fungal-fungal and plant-microbe interactions will be considered as a merit. Good knowledge of English in both speaking and writing is a prerequisite. Candidates should also have an ability to initiate, plan, and to work in team and independently.

Responsibilities/Job Description

Small RNAs (sRNAs) are noncoding RNA molecules play a central role in gene silencing at transcriptional and post-transcriptional level also known as RNA interference (RNAi). sRNAs are important for a variety of functions in organisms including the interactions between hosts and their parasites, pathogens and symbionts by modulating the regulatory machinery through targeted gene silencing. In addition, sRNAs can move bidirectional between species and influence the biology of recipient species. This project is aimed to study the biological and regulatory roles of sRNAs in fungal-fungal interactions in relation to mycoparasitism and biocontrol of fungal plant diseases.

We seek a motivated postdoctoral candidate to join our ongoing research project on small-RNA based strategies to control fungal plant pathogens. The postdoc is expected to perform RNA-seq (including sRNA and degradome seq) data analysis from the mycoparasitic fungus Clonostachys rosea, and the plant pathogenic fungi Fusarium graminearum and Botrytis cinerea, with focus on sRNAs diversity and expression pattern, their potential target genes and effect on transcriptome during mycoparasitic interactions.
