A postdoctoral position in plant molecular biology and biotechnology is immediately available at
UBC's Okanagan campus (Kelowna, BC) to investigate molecular aspects of secondary metabolism
(in particular the Cannabinoids) in industrial and medicinal strains of Cannabis sativa plants
using modern technologies including the CRISPR/Cas9 system. Knowledge and hands-on experience with
plant regeneration and transformation, GC-MS, HPLC, CRISPR/Cas9 system, protein and metabolite analysis,
and grant writing is highly desirable.
Applicants must hold a recent (within the past five years) Ph.D. degree in a relevant field and have
a strong interest in plant secondary metabolism. Excellent oral and written communication skills and
the ability to work well in a collaborative research environment are essential for this position.
Preference will be given to candidates with previous postdoc experience, and a strong peer-reviewed
publication record. Salary will be approximately CDN $45,000 / annum, including health insurance.
Funding for this project is renewable for two years.
