Department of Plant & Environmental Sciences, Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen is offering a full-time postdoc position for 2 years in plant developmental biology commencing 1 December 2021 or as soon as possible thereafter. They are recruiting a postdoctoral researcher to work on a two-year project (extension possible) aimed at manipulating plant development using microProtein engineering. MicroProteins are small single-domain proteins that have been shown to control diverse biological pathways (see e.g. Hong et al., PNAS, 2020).
Europe has been at the forefront of climate science and should retain its leadership position to support EU policies as well as international efforts for a global uptake of climate action in line with the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including biodiversity objectives. Advancing climate science and further broadening and deepening the knowledge base is essential to inform the societal transition towards a climate-neutral and climate-resilient society by 2050, as well as towards a more ambitious greenhouse gas reduction target by 2030.
