Postdoctoral Researcher (Faulkner group)

The postholder will conduct research on how cell-to-cell connectivity and signalling contributes to plant defence against fungal pathogens. The researcher will conduct innovative research to identify and characterise the signals and immune responses that spread from cell-to-cell via the symplast following localised perception of a pathogen. They will use metabolomic analysis, as well as cell biology and genetic approaches to generate data and formulate new hypotheses regarding how cell-to-cell communication underpins plant immune responses.
