Dear maize community,

The Department of Plant Systems Biology has an exciting opportunity  
for three Postdoctoral Scientists for gene discovery and functional  
analysis projects in maize using an integrated Systems Biology  
approach based on transcriptome analysis involving experimental and  
bio-informatics groups. The three (3-year) projects include leaf and  
ear development under stress conditions (cold and drought) and lateral  
root initiation. The work is supported by related projects on  
Arabidopsis and maize in the Research Groups Organ Growth Regulation  
and Root development and situated in the context of an industrial  
collaboration with CropDesign, a leading Biotechnology company in  
trait discovery and development.

The Department of Plant Systems Biology, directed by Prof. Dr. D.  
Inzé, offers excellent opportunities to develop multidisciplinary  
projects in life sciences. Located in a brand new spacious facility  
with state-of-the-art equipments and a staff of 170, it is a leading  
research institution in the areas of plant and systems biology. Our  
campus is ideally positioned at the interface between academia and  
industry and is one of the largest plant biotechnology centres in  
Europe. The department is located in Ghent, one of the most vivid and  
international cities in Flanders.

q      PhD with relevant expertise in plant cell and/or molecular  

q      Expertise in Maize is a plus.

q      An excellent command of English is a must.
