Post-Doc position available at Sapienza University, Rome

Post-doc Position on the molecular mechanisms of flower opening and closing in crop and model species available in Sapienza University, Rome, Italy. The post-doc candidate will join a highly collaborative team project aiming at deciphering the molecular mechanism underlying flower opening and closing (a very little studied topic in plant biology) and its regulation by light, using a multi-disciplinary approach which will include genetic and molecular biology approaches, CRISPR, advanced imaging and omics techniques. About us The Serino’s lab aims at uncovering new layers of regulation of the ubiquitin-proteasome pathway in light-regulated developmental processes, using mainly Arabidopsis thaliana as a model system. The lab is located in the main campus of Sapienza University, the oldest university in Rome and the largest in Europe. It is very close to the Rome city center and hosted by the Department of Biology and biotechnology, which includes internationally renowned scientists with differing and complementing expertise, and up to-date research facilities such as cutting edge microscopy facilities and nanotechnologies.
Application deadline: December 4th, 2023.
