Track II. Research Fellowship in Brain Korea 21 program: Up to KRW 30 million per annum per researcher, 2 - 4 years
Postdoctoral Fellows will take part in one of the following projects
1. Characterization of plasmodesmatal components using molecular-genetic-biochemical study:
2. Improvement of local and long-distance sucrose transport using plasmodesmal engineering
3. Development of efficient plant homologous recombination technology using CRISPR/Cas9
We are seeking a highly motivated and excellent postdoctoral candidate for this program. The successful postdoctoral candidate is expected to hold a Ph.D. degree and to have experience in related fields. English language skills are required.
