The Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) is looking for a Lab Technician to be part of the group working on Dark and Light Signaling Mechanisms.
CRAG is an independent research institution engaged in leading-edge basic and applied plant and farm animal sciences. CRAG is established as a Consortium of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA), Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB), and University of Barcelona (UB). The Center is located at the UAB Campus, and currently hosts 200 members from across the world.
Research Programs at CRAG (from basic science to applied research using plant experimental model systems, crops and farm animals) make extensive use of genomic technologies and large sets of genetic and genomic data (https://biennialreport2016-2017.cragenomica.es/).
The candidate will perform experiments to characterize a transcription factor UCO involved in the developmental response to photo-damaging light in Arabidopsis.
The tasks are included within the framework of the project 2017SGR-718 “Arabidopsis developmental genomics - GEANARADEV”.
Master Degree in Biotechnology, Biochemistry or related.
The candidate should be familiar with the most advanced techniques for genetics and molecular biology in the model plant Arabidopsis, with a focus in the responses to light. Knowledge of the current status of the field and experimental experience with chloroplast-to-nucleus retrograde signaling are required.
