The Center for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG) is looking for a postdoctoral researcher to be part of the group working on Floral induction and development.
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 researcher will study a gene regulatory network involved in controlling flowering under stress conditions in Arabidopsis and rice.
The tasks are included within the framework at the project Arabidopsis Developmental Genomics with reference 2017SGR718.
Educational Requirements: PhD in Biology, Biotechnology or similar
