    We are looking for a highly motivated candidate with a keen interest in single-cell approaches that is able to solve problems independently and enjoys working at the interface between biology and data science in collaborative projects. Fluency in spoken and written English is required.


    Experience with scRNA-seq, NGS library preparation, legume-rhizobium interactions and plant molecular genetics is an advantage

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    The work will be focused on single-cell analysis of rhizobium infection of plant root hairs. So far, legume-rhizobium interactions have been investigated at the level of plant organs or tissue types, and it remains unclear what cellular events are characteristic of the few root hair cells that allow intracellular rhizobium infection to proceed. You will use single-cell RNA-sequencing to investigate this question, exploiting rhizobium natural variation to facilitate identification of relevant cell populations and validating candidate genes using LORE1 mutants (1).
