Graduate Students, Post-doctoral Research Scientists,
and Foreign Professors

Department of Biotechnology
Yeungnam University
Gyeongsan, Korea

Applications are invited for Graduate Student, Postdoctoral Scientist, and Foreign Professor positions to under take innovative research in the Department of Biotechnology, Yeungnam University, Republic of Korea (

Experience in some or all of the following disciplines are desirable: molecular biology, biochemistry, analytic chemistry or microbiology. Good oral and written communication skills and ability to work independently and as part of a team are required.

The successful candidates will participate in the following projects.

Project 1: Biocontrol of Pine Wood Nematode using Metabolites Isolates from Endophytes of Pine Trees

Ÿ   Screening of metabolites isolated from endophyes for nematicidal activity
Ÿ   Isolation and identification of the nematicidal metabolites (NMR)
Ÿ   Metabolic profiling (LC-MS-MS).
Ÿ   Molecular mechanism of thenematicidal metabolites in pine tree

Project 2: Signal Perception and Transduction of Sound Vibration in Arabidopsis
Ÿ   Study on sound wave-mediated epigenetic changes which will include CHIP assay, bisulfite sequencing and small RNA sequencing.
Ÿ   Role of mechano-channel in sound wave perception which will include patch clamp techniques, FRET mediated cytosolic calcium measurement and mutant studies.
Ÿ   Metabolic profiling (LC-MS-MS).
Ÿ   Other molecular and cellular biology works.

Project 3: Viral Vector Construction for Rapid Plant Transformation
Ÿ   Construction and characterization of viral vectors for plant transformation without tissue culture
