Job Description

We are seeking a highly motivated postdoctoral fellow/research fellow to join the Canberra molecular physiology team of the international C4 rice consortium funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

The aim of the consortium is to install the C4 photosynthetic pathway into rice. The project seeks to identify key regulatory genes which control anatomical and biochemical specialisation required for the operation of the C4 pathway by knock-out and overexpression in rice and the C4 plant Setaria.

We are looking for a person with molecular experience with a willingness to learn physiological techniques related to leaf gas exchange and plant biochemistry.

Experience in plants science is desirable but not essential.
