Nội dung Học bổng
A position as PhD Research fellow is available at the Department of Biosciences, University of Oslo
The fellowship will be for a period of 3 years, with no compulsory work or for a period of 4 years, with 25 % compulsory work (teaching responsibilities at the department) contingent on the qualifications of the candidate and the teaching needs of the department.
Starting date no later than 01.10.2015.
No one can be appointed for more than one fixed-term period at the same institution.
We are searching for a highly motivated person with interest in peptide signaling and molecular plant genetics. Experience with the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and experience with molecular and imaging methods relevant to the project will be seen as a benefit.
The PhD fellow will be appointed on the project entitled “Decoding Signalling and Specificity of plant Peptide Ligand-Receptor Networks” funded by the Research council of Norway. The project focuses on understanding signalling specificity in peptide ligand-receptor signalling systems that use similar signalling components. To address this, we will use the signalling unit comprising the peptide ligand INFLORESCENCE DEFICIENT IN ABSCISSION (IDA) relaying a signal through the two closely related leucine-rich receptor-like kinases (LRR-RLKs) HAESA (HAE) and HAESA-LIKE2 (HSL2) as a model system, and compare it to the CLAVATA 3 signalling pathway. In particular the PhD fellow will explore the role of Calcium as a second messenger in IDA signalling. This will be done by the use of Arabidopsis lines expressing fluorescent Calcium sensors and mutant interaction studies.
The project is led by Research fellow Melinka Butenko (http://www.mn.uio.no/ibv/personer/vit/melinka/ and the PhD fellow appointed will work at the section for Genetics and Evolutionary Biology (http://www.mn.uio.no/ibv/english/research/sections/evogene/index.html . The project has international collaborators (Prof. Rüdiger Simon and Prof. Jörg Kudla) and research visits to collaborating partners may be an opportunity.
The Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences has a strategic ambition of being a leading research faculty. Candidates for these fellowships will be selected in accordance with this, and expected to be in the upper segment of their class with respect to academic credentials.
Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in Molecular Biology. The applicant must be qualified for the doctoral program within these disciplines. The successful applicant should preferably have skills and experience with fluorescent imaging, preferably in work related to monitoring fluorescent sensors. Experience with one or more of the following methods would also be an advantage: cloning and recombinant DNA technology; gene expression analysis; genetic methods in Arabidopsis thaliana, e.g. using T-DNA insertion, RNAi and/or reporter lines.
Applicants must hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in Molecular Biology.
The purpose of the fellowship is research training leading to the successful completion of a PhD degree.
The fellowship requires admission to the PhD programme at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. The application to the PhD programme must be submitted to the department no later than two months after taking up the position.
A good command of English is required.
Application deadline: 1. August 2015
