One postdoctoral fellow and two graduate student positions are available in our plant lipid biotechnology lab (https://plb.ualberta.ca).
We are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with robust knowledge and experience in plant lipid biochemistry and biology, along with a record of scientific publication. The position involves independently working on projects related to the biochemical, biological, and physiological functions of lipid-associated genes in canola and Arabidopsis.
The open MSc/PhD positions for Fall 2024 are in the following areas: (1) genetic engineering of oleaginous yeast; and (2) biochemical, biological, and physiological studies of lipid-related genes in canola and Arabidopsis.
For the MSc positions, candidates are expected to have a BSc degree in related majors and strong knowledge in biochemistry, molecular biology, and genetic engineering. For the PhD positions, candidates should hold an MSc degree in a related field and demonstrate strong knowledge and experience in molecular biology, biochemistry, or genetic engineering.
If you are interested in any of these positions, please reach out to me with your CV and research interests. Thank you.
