POSTDOCTORAL POSITION ON PLANT VIRUSES AT CRAG. (Deadline 27 august 23)
POSTDOCTORAL POSITION ON PLANT VIRUSES AT CRAG.
If you are interested in plant viruses and in understanding how they alter plant metabolism during their movement and replication, the Plant Viruses group at CRAG offers a postdoctoral position through the MSCA-COFUND project AGenT program.
Plant viruses alter the endomembrane system and the secretory pathways during the infection.
We have found in melon two genes involved in the susceptibility to Cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) and have generated CRISPR melon and tomato plants in one of them.
These two genes are related to sterol metabolism and are involved in membrane dynamics and protein trafficking. We aim to understand their role during the infection and to generate melon and tomato plants resistant to CMV and other viruses that use the same infection pathway.
Applicants should contact Ana Montserrat Martín-Hernández, PhD (https://www.cragenomica.es/research-groups/plant-viruses )
