Fully-funded postdoctoral position in chloroplast quality control and signaling

We are offering a fully-funded postdoctoral position with a flexible starting date. We are looking for creative, self-motivated candidates who possess

• one or more first-author research manuscripts (preprints are accepted);

• strong problem-solving, interpersonal and communication skills;

• a genuine drive to create an inclusive and diverse workplace.

Experience in one or more of the following areas is highly desirable: Cell and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Genetics, Plant Biology, Bioinformatics.

Previous mentoring experience is a plus.

Our lab aims to discover and characterize the molecular machines involved in chloroplast biogenesis and quality control (https://www.oeaw.ac.at/gmi/research/research-groups/silvia- ramundo). Currently, we are striving for a comprehensive understanding of the chloroplast unfolded protein response, a gene expression program that photosynthetic eukaryotes activate in response to chloroplast damage. However, we are open to exploring other research avenues related to our lab interests. Furthermore, we provide a highly supportive atmosphere for developing curiosity-driven projects that can help our trainees to move on to independent positions in academia and industry.

To apply, please send silvia.ramundo@gmi.oeaw.ac.at a CV/bio-sketch, contact information for three references and a cover letter answering the following questions: 1) What scientific questions would you like to address during your postdoc, and how? 2) Why would you like to join our lab?

We look forward to receiving your application!

Although the funding for this position is secured, there is additionally the possibility of applying for a 3-year fellowship through the Vienna International Postdoctoral Program (VIP2) (for more details, please visit the following website: https://training.vbc.ac.at/post-docs/vip2-post-doc- program/). The deadline for the VIP2 application is June 15th and requires the submission of a five-page scientific project proposal.
