‘The role of auxin signaling in cell differentiation in meristems’
We are looking for a highly motivated and independent student to conduct studies on the role of auxin signaling in cell differentiation in meristems of the model species Arabidopsis thaliana. The work will focus on elucidating the molecular basis for cell sensitivity to auxin and on the analysis of the gene network controlling cell fate specification in response to auxin in both shoots and roots.
The work will be conducted both at the Ecole Normale SupÃ©rieure de Lyon and at the University of Nottingham, under the direction of Teva Vernoux and Anthony Bishopp.
An expertise in genomics, molecular biology, live imaging and developmental biology is highly desirable. An experience in network analysis would be appreciated.
This studentship will commence 1 October 2013. Due to funding restrictions, this position is opened only to EU applicants.
