The Dagdas lab at the Gregor Mendel Institute of Molecular Plant Biology aims to understand cell autonomous and non-cell autonomous roles of selective autophagy in cellular homeostasis.
Current research topics include:
• Characterizing novel autophagy cargo receptors and adaptors that we have recently identified.
Desirable skills include proteomics, protein biochemistry, and Arabidopsis/Marchantia genetics.
• Functional investigation of tissue specific autophagy dynamics using our recently established toolbox.
Desirable skills include Arabidopsis root biology and live cell imaging.
Successful candidates will have expertise in the areas outlined above as demonstrated by first author papers or preprints. Priority will be given to postdocs who have identified independent funding sources and are prepared to apply.
