A funded graduate student position is available to study peptide signaling controlling plant growth and development in the Lee laboratory at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The selected student will combine molecular genetics, biochemistry, imaging, and proteomics to understand how cells interact to control diverse developmental processes in the plant model organisms, Arabidopsis (for dicots) and Brachypodium (for monocots). The student will be under the guidance of Drs. Jin Suk Lee (Concordia) and Jeong Ill Kim (Kumho Life and Environmental Science Laboratory). Please contact Dr. Lee (email@example.com) for additional information regarding the project and position.
Concordia is a full-spectrum, research-intensive university that conducts leading-edge research in a variety of areas including cell and molecular biology.
