Please find this PhD position available at INRA Bordeaux to start in October 2018 (see PDF attached). It is funded for three years (bourse fléchée de l’Ecole Doctorale SVS, https://ed-svs.u-bordeaux.fr/).
This PhD studentship aims to investigate redox signalling that controls tomato performance, and more specifically, to determine how ascorbic acid modulates plant metabolism during growth and in response to stress. The candidate will conduct two experimental chapters, one based on plant biochemistry/enzymology, and the second one on metabolic phenotyping. Therefore, we are looking for a serious and highly motivated Master degree (or equivalent) candidate with robust background in plant biochemistry.
