Position: PhD Research Fellow in Plant Reproduction and Developmental Biology
Institution: University of Oslo
Location: Oslo, Østlandet, Norway
Duties: The objective of this phd-project is to elucidate the genetic and epigenetic networks underlying endosperm development, with a focus on the role and mechanisms of imprinted genes. Investigation of research questions and testing of hypotheses is facilitated by the molecular analysis of spatial and temporal imprinting panels from fluorescence-assisted nuclear sorting, and de novo analysis of a single nuclei seed transcriptome allowing parent-of-origin allelic resolution. In addition, the hybrid seed approach developed allows phenotypic inspection as well as manipulation of imprinting patterns as described above
Requirements: Master’s degree or equivalent in Plant Molecular Biology, or Plant Developmental Biology, or a Master’s degree in Biology demonstrating experience relevant to the project; Or a foreign completed degree (M.Sc.-level) corresponding to a minimum of four years in the Norwegian educational system; Fluent oral and written communication skills in English
