Research Assistant/Associate (Fixed Term)

Post-doctoral research associate to join the University of Cambridge Department of Plant Sciences in the area of Food Security and Plant Pathology. The appointee will join the recently established group of Dr Sebastian Eves-van den Akker. Funding is available for three years from May 2019, with a flexible start date within the following 3 months. The research will be part of an "effector genomics" project funded by BBSRC, to understand the juxtaposition of genomic variability and stability in the HYP effector gene family of globally important plant-parasitic nematodes. Those with a keen interest in understanding the genomic evolution of a particularly unusual effector family are encouraged to apply.
