    Applications are invited for a two-year postdoctoral position in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, Canada. The successful applicant will work on the development of spray and host induced gene silencing technologies in the control of fungal pathogens. The global agriculture industry has been under pressure to find new, innovative, and environmentally sustainable ways to control fungal pathogens. Our recent discoveries using RNA interference technology show that this technology is capable of protecting plants against fungal pathogens as both foliar sprays or using a transgenic approach. The purpose of this project is to develop both spray and host induced gene silencing technologies using novel double stranded RNA structures in the control of fungal pathogens. Specifically, the objectives of this research are 1) identify new fungal gene targets and dsRNA structures in the control and application of both foliar sprays and transgenic plants and 2) characterize the mode of action of these technologies in vitro and in planta. The position requires highly motivated individuals with excellent written and oral communication skills and great interpersonal skills. This position is expected to commence on December 1, 2021 and end on November 30, 2023. Salary Range is $36,000 - $45,000 CAD, Commensurate with qualifications and experience

    Rooted in the ground, plants have unique strategies for being more resilient to changes in their environment, a major part of which involves the reprograming of gene expression. While a number of key genes have been identified to confer high temperature tolerance, many studies aiming to determine genetic variants associated with tolerance traits have identified variants located within cis-regulatory elements. Whereas the importance of distal cis-regulatory elements, such as enhancers, in gene regulation has been shown in many eukaryotic genomes, their impact on genome-wide and stress-specific transcriptional reprograming remains largely unknown in plants. Our group seeks to understand the contribution of distal cis-regulatory elements to a plant’s ability to respond to environmental stressors. The project involves using systems biology approaches (functional genomics, bioinformatics, genome editing) to focus on a specific class of distal cis-regulatory elements, enhancers, in the context of high temperature stress in the staple food Asian rice (Oryza sativa).

    Les plantes disposent de stratégies uniques pour contrer les changements de leur environnement, notamment la reprogrammation de l’expression génique. Certains gènes clés semblent conférer une tolérance aux températures élevées. Bien que l’importance des éléments cis-régulateurs distaux, notamment les enhancers), dans la régulation des gènes a été démontrée dans de nombreux génomes eucaryotes, leur effet sur la reprogrammation transcriptionnelle à l’échelle du génome et leur réponse spécifique au stress reste largement méconnu dans les plantes. L’objectif de notre groupe est de mieux cerner le rôle des éléments cis-régulateurs distaux dans la capacité d’une plante à s’adapter aux facteurs de stress environnementaux. Le programme, fondé sur la biologie intégrative (génomique fonctionnelle, bioinformatique, édition du génome), permettra d’étudier dans un contexte de températures élevées une catégorie spécifique d’éléments cis-régulateurs distaux, les amplificateurs, d’un aliment de base, le riz asiatique (Oryza sativa).
