How Do Post Translational Modifications enable adaptive responses in plants

Durham University

Proteins undergo post-translational modifications (PTMs) that have evolved in all forms of life as a mechanism for rapidly adapting protein function in response to many different kinds of stimuli. PTMs are known to be involved with cell signalling, enabling protein-protein interactions, protein turnover, and in the context of plants, are intrinsically involved in key traits, such as response to stresses (drought, flooding, pathogens). Closing date: 31st July 2021

Expressions of Interest

We welcome expressions of interest from motivated scientists who are interested in the study of plant SUMO and its role in regulating plant adaptation. This includes its role in chromatin and transcriptional regulation, hormone, light and temperature signalling, drought and salt tolerance. When inquiring about post-doc positions, please include a statement of research interests and professional goals, a curriculum vitae, a list of publications, and contact information for references.
