Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position to study the molecular-genetic basis of interspecific hybrid incompatibility and its genetic linkage to the well-studied pollinator-mediated reproductive isolation loci in wild Petunia. The successful postdoc will validate candidate genes underlying hybrid incompatibility by gene editing and study their distribution in natural populations.See: Hoballah et al, Plant Cell 2007; Klahre et al, Curr Biol 2011; Hermann et al, Curr Biol 2013; Sheehan et al, Nature Genet 2016; Amrad et al, Curr Biol 2016; Esfeld et al, Curr Biol, 2018.
We are looking for a highly motivated postdoc with a strong background in molecular biology/genetics and an interest in molecular evolution. We offer a creative and stimulating international scientific environment and high end facilities. The lab language is English.
The position is for up to 3 years and is available immediately. Applications will be continuously evaluated until the deadline of August 31, 2019. Your application should be a single pdf file with curriculum vitae, copies of diplomas and transcripts, a convincing motivation letter and contact details of three references.
