    Overview Of Role

    Applications are invited from talented, motivated and highly committed researchers for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant position in the Department of Bionteractions and Crop Protection to join a new exciting project on the genetic improvement of mungbean, one of the most popular pulse crops in India, for resistance to fungal diseases Cercospora Leaf Spot and Powdery Mildew.

    The project is a partnership between Rothamsted Research and two research organisations in India and is supported by the Newton Bhabha Fund and BBSRC within the Pulses & oilseeds research initiative.

    Rothamsted Research is a world-leading, non-profit research centre that focuses on strategic agricultural science to the benefit of farmers and society worldwide. Rothamsted Research provides a strong interdisciplinary environment and facilities for investigations of crops and crop-associated organisms, from the molecular to population level, and has an excellent track-record in crop research, plant pathology, functional genomics, genetics and plant biotechnology.

    To be considered for this role, candidates should possess a PhD/doctoral degree in Plant Genetics and/or Genomics. It is essential that candidates have strong molecular biological techniques. Experience working with fungal pathogens of plants, performing global transcriptomic analyses, and/or previous experience working with mungbean or other pulse crops or legumes is also desirable. Previous first author publications in reputable peer reviewed journals is also desirable.

    The post holder will be responsible for performing innovative research of international quality aimed at gaining an in-depth understanding of the different host-pathogen interactions, developing novel molecular genetics and genomics tools for mungbean disease resistance breeding, and utilising powerful emerging technologies such as RNA-interference/Host-induced gene silencing and genome editing (CRISPR/Cas9) for engineering broad-spectrum resistance to these economically damaging diseases.

    This is a full-time, fixed term post funded until 30 September 2021 and has a starting salary within the range of £29,842 to £32,315 per annum depending on the profile and experience. 

    The start date is 1st October 2018; Due to funding restrictions, we will be unable to consider applications from candidates who are unable to start before or on this date.  Please confirm your ability to start on this date in your applications.

    Informal enquiries should be directed to Dr Kostya Kanyuka (kostya.kanyuka@rothamsted.ac.uk)

    Closing date: 20th August 2018

    Interviews will be held on 29-30th August 2018
