Postdoctoral Researcher - How Does Cell-To-Cell Communication Underpin Immunity?

uk: Postdoctoral Researcher - How Does Cell-To-Cell Communication Underpin Immunity? [2 y | 100% | Duties: The Postdoctoral Researcher will undertake research to identify which immune responses and infection processes are regulated by cell-to-cell connections and communication in plants. For this, the Postdoctoral Researcher will use next generation sequencing and metabolomics, as well as cell biology and genetic analysis to both identify and characterise candidate immune responses. The Postdoctoral Researcher will produce data and critically analyse this data, and by keeping up to date with current developments in the field contribute insights and ideas that help develop the project | Minimum Requirements: PhD (full award or expected within 6 months) or equivalent in Biological Sciences. BSc or equivalent. Evidence of skills in plant molecular biology. Evidence of laboratory skills in metabolomics. Evidence of skills and experience in live cell imaging. Experience in data analysis and statistics | Preferred Requirements: Evidence of skills in gene expression analysis and RNA sequencing Experience of handling plant pathogens] / John Innes Centre (JIC); Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom / deadline April 28
