Research Associate/Fellow (Fixed-term)

University of Nottingham - Plant & Crop Sciences

A Research Associate/Fellow is required to undertake research as part of a BBSRC-funded project “Charting the protein modifications systems that underpin submergence tolerance in rice”, in collaboration with Professor Ari Sadanandom, University of Durham.

The successful applicant will use genetical, biochemical and physiological approaches to understand the role of targeted protein modifications in controlling function of the rice SUBMERGENCE (SUB)1A transcription factor, a key genetic component of new flood-tolerant rice varieties. This exciting project builds directly on our previous work identifying and characterising the molecular mechanism of oxygen-sensing in plants though the N-end rule pathway of targeted proteolysis (eg. Gibbs et al Nature 2011, Abbas et al Current Biology 2015).

Applicants must have, or expect to soon obtain, a PhD in a relevant area of biology, with an interest in working as part of a team.  

This full-time post is fixed-term for a period of 3 years.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Professor Michael Holdsworth tel: 0115 9516046 Or email Please note that applications sent directly to this email address will not be accepted.

The University of Nottingham is an equal opportunities employer and welcomes applications from all sections of the community.
