The Plants for Human Health Institute is seeking a highly motivated and talented scientist with solid lab skills in Arabidopsis genetics and epigenetics to fill an NSF-funded postdoctoral position to study the mechanism of genomic imprinting regulated by active DNA demethylation in Arabidopsis. The focus of this project is to use a combination of molecular biology, genetic, genomic, and bioinformatic approaches to study how DEMETER DNA glycosylase... READ MORE ...
|Postdoctoral Position in Stacey Laboratory|
A postdoctoral position is available for a NIH-funded project to explore the function and mechanism of purinergic signaling in plants (see Choi et al., 2014. Science 343: 290; Tanaka et al., 2014. Front. Plant Sci. 5:446). Purinergic signaling, although not extensively studied in plants, affects a wide range of plant processes, including those associated with the plant response to abiotic and biotic stress. The project will involve further studies... READ MORE ...
|Bioinformatics Postdoc Position|
A funded postdoctoral position is available for a bioinformatician or computational biologist in the Slotkin laboratory at The Ohio State University.
The Slotkin laboratory investigates the epigenetic regulation of transposable elements, focusing on how active transposable elements are first identified and targeted for silencing in plant genomes.
The position will study the epigenetic regulation of transposable elements across plant... READ MORE ...
Applications are invited for a post-doctoral position at Purdue University - in the laboratory of Dr. Kranthi Varala.
The successful applicant will lead a project investigating the immediate transcriptional response to cold stress and how those initial responses are transduced into long-term phenotypic changes in plant growth. This research is focused on applying systems biology approaches to understand how plants perceive and respond to... READ MORE ...
|Lecturer / Senior Lecturer in Plant Biology|
The University of Birmingham is continuing to make strategic investments across its research base in the Plant Sciences. Applications are invited from candidates who will further strengthen and expand our expertise in one or more of the following areas: Systems and Synthetic Biology, Cell and Developmental Biology, and/or Biochemistry. We welcome candidates who may work across these or other disciplines within the Plant Sciences, as well as those... READ MORE ...
|Graduate and Postdoc Positions|
Positions are available for motivated scientists to test gene expression and epigenetic changes in plant hybrids and polyploids with a research focus on elucidating molecular mechanisms for hybrid vigor and seed development in Arabidopsis or fiber cell development in cotton. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in Plant Biology, Genetics, Computational Biology or related areas with solid training in plant science, molecular biology, and epigenetics.... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: August 14th|
This weeks UK Arabidopsis Research Roundup includes a study from the lab of GARNet Chairman Steven Spoel that describes their work on the control of ROS signaling. The other two papers looks at different aspects of photosynthetic control. Firstly Giles Johnson (University of Manchester) investigates the proteomic changes that occur during dynamic acclimation. Finally Alex Webb’s lab (University of Cambridge) investigate how the products of... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: August 1st|
This weeks Arabidopsis Research Roundup has a tools-focus as it includes three papers that highlight new tools that are available to the plant science community. Silke Robatzek (TSL) leads research that has developed software for analysis of subcellular fluorescent markers whilst in a broadly similar area Mark Fricker (University of Oxford) is part of an international collaboration that characterises a tool that allows for analysis of intracellular...

|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: July 18th|
This weeks Arabidopsis Research Roundup includes four studies from around the UK. Firstly is a systems-level study of the drought response that includes Alessandra Devoto from RHUL as a co-author. Secondly Anne Osbourn’s group at the JIC investigates sesterterpenoid biosynthesis across plant species. Thirdly Paul Jarvis from Oxford University adds to this groups portfolio of research on the mechanisms that control thylakoid import. Finally Patrick... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: July 3rd.|
The Arabidopsis Research Roundup returns this week with selection of publications from institutions across the UK. Firstly George Bassel (Birmingham) leads a study that investigates the integration of inductive signals in the embryonic root. Secondly a group from the Oxford Brookes plant science group look into the literal linkages between the golgi apparatus and ER. Thirdly John Christie (Glasgow) and co-workers define a new variant of the... READ MORE ...
|Arabidopsis Research Roundup: May 17th|
This weeks Arabidopsis research roundup begins with a paper led by CPIB at the University of Nottingham that discovers a somewhat surprisingly mechanism controling Arabidopsis root hydrotropism. Next are two papers from the University of Leeds that firstly investigate how the JAGGED LATERAL ORGANS gene influences the auxin response and secondly looks at the role of redox regulation in the control of the cell cycle and seed development. Finally are... READ MORE ...
|Arabdopsis Research Roundup: May 11th|
This weeks Arabidopsis Research Roundup is lead by two papers that characterise the relationship between cell size and growth in different Arabidopsis tissues. Firstly the lab of GARNet PI Jim Murray look at how the cell cycle influences cell size progression in the SAM whilst George Bassel’s group from Birmingham investigate cell growth within a developing embryo. Thirdly is a paper from the University of Essex that further defines the role of the... READ MORE ...
