Graduate Studentship

Plant Metabolic Biochemistry, Genomics and Synthetic Biology
Department of Biological Sciences
University of Calgary

Applications are invited for a graduate studentship in the field of plant specialized metabolic biochemistry in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Calgary. Successful applicants will join a dynamic research group recognized for leading-edge contributions in the area of plant alkaloid biosynthesis (http://contacts.ucalgary.ca/info/bio/profiles/124-1518). Potential research projects include the isolation of new biosynthetic genes, the mechanistic and structural characterization of novel enzymes, development of a cellular model for alkaloid metabolism using plant systems biology, and the reconstitution of plant alkaloid pathways in engineered microorganisms based on synthetic biology. The laboratory is well equipped to support a wide range of research interests. Applicants must have a strong undergraduate background in organic chemistry, biochemistry or molecular biology. The successful applicant has the option to begin their program in either May or September 2018. Inquiries should be submitted by e-mail to Professor Peter Facchini  (pfacchin@ucalgary.ca).
