The Centro de Biotecnologia y Genómica de Plantas (CBGP, UPM-INIA) is seeking for outstanding candidates for 9 postdoctoral researcher positions in the three CBGP Transversal Scientific Programs (Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes, Improving Plant Response to Biotic Stress, and Empowering Plant Nutrition) and in the Computational, Systems Biology, and Genomics Program (CSBGP). The CBGP (UPM-INIA) is a research institute recently recognized as Severo Ochoa (SO) Center of Excellence.
The Transversal Scientific Programs (TSPs) will combine the expertise of CBGP research groups that are working in different research lines.
The TSP postdoctoral research positions are associated to the following projects:
TSP1 – Plant Response to Biotic Stresses
A virological approach to biocontrol Botrytis cinerea, a plant pathogenic fungus also relevant to human health (EoI-TSP1-01)
TSP2 – Plant Adaptation to Environmental Changes
Exploring plant adaptation to climate change (EoI-TSP2-04)
Molecular bases of circadian and seasonal RbohD priming (EoI-TSP2-08)
Combined genetic approaches to disclose seed growth and germination control by indolic compounds (EoI-TSP2-09)
Mechanistic principles underlying dynamics of plant growth compensation by low temperatures (EoI-TSP2-10)
TSP3 – Empowering Plant Nutrition
Host- and bacterial-factors relevant for the interaction of Rhizobiales with eukaryotic hosts (EoI-TSP3-01)
Using Microbial Dark Matter and Computational Models to Streamline Synthetic Nitrogenase Pathways (EoI-TSP3-5)
The novel CsBGP initiative aims to develop new computational/genomics tools by applying systems-level, multi-scale, information-driven and model-driven approaches. The CsBGP postdoctoral research positions are associated to the following projects:
Evolutionary Synthetic Biology Of Microbes (EoI-CsBGP-03)
Bioinformatic analysis of genomics data (EoI-CsBGP-04)
