[Masashi Yamada Lab] Postdoc position opening
The post-doc position in Biotechnology Center in Southern Taiwan, Academia Sinica (Tainan) is available to study the function of Root Meristem Growth Factor 1 (RGF1) peptide in root developmental zones and the molecular mechanism of root developmental zones to adapt to abiotic stress. The successful candidates will be actively participating in one of the following projects.
1.Investigation of the regulation mechanism of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) in the specific root developmental zones by RGF1 peptide.
