News: Postdoctoral Positions at the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) Barcelona, Spain.
The Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) is seeking to incorporate highly talented and motivated postdoctoral scientists that are interested in modern, multidisciplinary plant sciences, encompassing experimental, bioinformatic and theoretical approaches.
Currently, we are inviting applications for 5 postdoctoral positions within our CRAG “Severo Ochoa” Internationalization Postdoctoral Program, to start in July, 2018. These positions will involve collaborative projects between a group from CRAG and a group from another leading international Research Center (not located in Spain). The collaborative project will include a secondment of at least three months of the postdoctoral researcher at the international Center. Interested candidates are required to discuss the proposal with their prospective principal investigator at CRAG before submitting the application. For this Call, applications are accepted for the following CRAG Research Groups:
• Rosaceae Genetics and Genomics - Iban Eduardo in collaboration with Bacterial Pathogens and Plant Cell Death - Marc Valls
• Brassinosteroid Signaling in Plant Development - Ana Caño-Delgado
• Floral Induction and Development - Soraya Pelaz
