  • Postdoctoral Researcher - Molecular Plant Pathology

    • Work Area: Science Capabilities
    • Location: Harpenden
    • Salary details: £29,842 - £32,315 per annum
    • Overview of role:
      An exciting opportunity has arisen within the wheat pathogenomics team for a post-doctoral scientist to further explore the wheat – Fusarium graminearum interaction.  The research will be specifically aimed at improving our understanding of how different Fusarium secreted effector proteins (FgSSPs) are deployed both spatially and temporally to permit the fungal hyphae to either successfully evade plant perception or suppress plant defences during the early phases of the infection, whilst other FgSSPs subsequently activate plant cell death. The research tools to be used will include Virus-mediated protein overexpression (VOX) in wheat and N.

  • Agricultural Systems Modeller

    • Work Area: Science
    • Location: Harpenden
    • Salary details: £29,842 to £32,315
    • Overview of role:
      UK agriculture faces many conflicting pressures; globally, still more pressures arise. In developed countries consumers demand safe, nutritious food alongside high animal welfare standards. In developing countries, the growing size of the urbanising population creates an increasing demand on the supply of food. Production everywhere needs to go hand in hand with sustainable and resilient management of land to protect the wider environment in the long-term and farmers need reliable incomes if they are to continue to supply and meet the various demands put on them.  The UK is likely to undergo significant change in the near future in the way in which land-management is supported.
