The candidate post-doctoral fellow will join the multi-year; multi-institutional Genome Canada
funded project TRIA-FoR, which is based in the Department of Biological Sciences at the
University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada in the laboratory of Dr. R. Glen Uhrig.
The current TRIA-FoR project will employ quantitative proteomics in conjunction with
advanced plant molecular biology, biochemistry, and genetics to characterize and validate host
disease resistance targets related to mountain pine beetle. To do this, the candidate post-doctoral fellow will be expected to deploy a variety of cutting-edge techniques to accomplish this task.
It is expected that the outcomes of this project will feed into the larger collaborative and applied research efforts of TRIA-FoR, aimed at enhancing pine resiliency to mountain pine beetle. Within the general scope of the project, the candidate post-doctoral fellow will be encouraged to develop independent and creative lines of inquiry, with support from Dr. R. Glen Uhrig, while being provided training and professional development support to prepare them for careers in either academia or industry.
