OFFER DESCRIPTION

To establish and run experimental approaches such as:
• The measure of cell-to-cell connectivity in planta by live imaging approaches
• Map plasmodesmata network by electron microscopy in response to different environmental contexts
• Analyse by confocal imaging subcellular localisation and dynamics of callose deposition
• Analyse plasmodesmata ultrastructure by electron tomography

In the frame of a HFSP project, the Post-Doc will be in charge of studying how plasmodesmata cell-cell communication network “responds” to low temperature imput and control release from dormancy in Aspen hybrid trees. The overall objective of the project, which involve 4 groups (France, UK, Sweden, USA) is to understand how robust information processing is achieved in plants which lack a centralised decision-making system. The candidate will work in a team of 6-8 people under the scientific direction of Emmanuelle Bayer

The post-Doc will work at the Laboratory of Membrane Biogenesis/UMR5200 with several lab members in the context of the HFSP “Uncovering the OS of trees” which aim at understanding how environmental information such as temperature is processed by trees and control of bud dormancy
