Wageningen University is looking for a post-doc ‘Oomycete biology with impact’. Are you a connecting person who enjoys teaching? That’s our core too! Post-docs at the Laboratory of Phytopathology truly dedicate time to teaching, the Univ says in a release..
This comprises supervising MSc and PhD students as well as practical courses, and mentoring students performing mini-projects or assignments.
Are you willing to help find answers to the challenges of the world in agriculture, healthy food and the living environment? That’s our passion too!
Our research focuses on fungal, oomycete and bacterial plant pathogens and their interactions with host/non-host plants and the environment.
For many years, oomycete research focused on unravelling the molecular and cellular machinery of Phytophthora infestans that regulates pathogenicity and plant invasion. We primarily studied its cytoskeleton, G-protein and phospholipid signalling as well as host targets of Phytophthora RXLR effectors and the role of receptor-like kinases (RLKs) in plant defence.
This vacancy is open until October 28, 2019.
