The candidate will study manganese transport and its regulation in Arabidopsis


The project will include three parts. First, the candidate will search for kinases that regulate endocytosis of the NRAMP1 manganese (Mn) transporter in response to its substrate, through a genetic screen as well as a candidate gene approach. Second, the role of Mn in seed germination will be examined via the functional characterization of metal transporters, in particular the NRAMP2 transporter. Third, natural variation of Mn loading in the seed will be investigated by quantitative genetics (GWAS).


The candidate should be able to work independently and cooperatively within a team. An expertise in plant molecular biology, molecular and quantitative genetics, biochemistry and imaging is required.

Work Context

The MeMo lab is located in the Biochemistry and Plant Molecular Physiology lab in Montpellier (BPMP, which is part of the large research SupAgro-INRAE campus. Montpellier is a vibrant student city located in the south of France by the Mediterranean sea.

Additional Information

Candidates should send a CV including a list of publications, and names and email addresses of three refences
