An exciting opportunity has arisen to join the Plant Productivity 
Research Group at the University of Essex.

Professor Christine Raines seeks to appoint a full-time Senior Research 
Officer with experience in the area of gene editing and the underlying 
bioinformatics. The candidate will be developing CRISPR/Cas9 tools to 
target changes in expression of endogenous photosynthesis genes in 
tobacco.

This work will form an essential part of a project led by Prof Raines 
aiming to improve photosynthesis in tobacco and other crop plants. This 
forms one strand of an exciting international consortium funded by the 
Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. This consortium is headed by 
Professor S Long, Illinois, USA. The post is available immediately and 
is funded for an initial period of 24 months.

The Plant Productivity Research Group is one of 5 research groups in the 
School and focuses on understanding and improving processes that 
determine plant productivity and plant responses to changing 
environmental conditions. The candidate will be joining a group of 3 
postdoctoral researchers, two research technician and 2 PhD students. 
The Plant Productivity group works closely together with the School's 
Genomics and Computational Biology group.

This group has particular strengths in computational biology, with 
extensive experience in the analysis of large genomics data sets, 
modelling of transcription factor binding, epigenetics and molecular 
phylogeny.
