The Salt Lab from Prof. Mark Tester (https://saltlab.kaust.edu.sa/) is building a team to work on a recently funded project to study the wild genetic diversity in Chenopodium species for improvement of heat stress tolerance in quinoa. In this project, comparative physiological and molecular analyses will be used to identify key genetic factors governing heat stress tolerance in wild relatives of quinoa that could help extend the cultivation of quinoa into hotter climates, and mitigate the risks associated with climate change in current areas of cultivation.

The Salt Lab is based in the Centre for Desert Agriculture (cda.kaust.edu.sa/about) at KAUST which offers a supportive and vibrant team of international scientists. The CDA is embedded in the BESE Division (bese.kaust.edu.sa), which maintains world-class research facilities including microscopy, analytical chemistry, third generation sequencing and plant growth facilities.

Screening of applicants will start immediately, and the positions remain open until filled.

We are looking for a Postdoctoral scientist with the following qualifications:

Required:

  • PhD in plant reproduction or plant developmental biology
  • Extensive experience with plant dissection techniques and microscopy
  • Demonstrated experience with molecular biology techniques
  • Experience with monitoring and quantifying plant physiological responses to stress
  • Effective writing and communication skills

Desirable:

  • Experience in analyzing transcriptomic data sets
  • Interest in coordinating research with international collaborators

Applications should include:

  • A full CV
  • A one page statement about your experience in relation to the listed qualifications
  • Contact information for two referees from academia or industry (letters are not required at this point in time)
