Qualification Details

We are looking for a highly motivated plant biologist with strong analytical skills and keen interest in understanding mechanisms of autophagy. Candidates with documented experience in chemical biology of plant autophagy or development of analytical techniques for detection and measurement of autophagic flux are particularly encouraged to apply. Excellent communication skills in both oral and written English are expected. The applicant must have their own funding.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The Plant Catabolism Laboratory has recently developed methodology for high-throughput screening of chemical compounds with autophagy modulating activity in plants and identified a panel of specific inhibitors and activators of autophagy. The main purpose of this project is to find out cellular targets of these compounds and understand their mechanisms of action. The work will involve biochemical, genetic and cell biological approaches mainly in Arabidopsis thaliana.

This open position is within a mobility project supported by Formas and aimed to advance our mechanistic understanding of plant autophagy. The project will develop through a close cooperation between SLU, University of California, Davis and Chemical Biology Consortium Sweden (CBCS) possessing complementary expertise in biochemistry, structural biology, drug design and plant cell and developmental biology. The successful candidate for this position will join The Plant Catabolism Laboratory, at the Department of Molecular Sciences, Uppsala BioCenter.
