Descripción de la oferta de trabajo:

Global challenges regarding energy and climate change, the environment, health, food safety, technology and renewable solutions, use and conservation of land and natural resources, and development of the bio-economy, requires greater effort. NMBU is well equipped to conduct further research in these fields. NMBU's expertise spans entire value chains and includes both basic and applied research.


On 1 January 2014, the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science and the University of Life Sciences merged and became -NMBU, the Norwegian University of Life Sciences. NMBU has 1700 employees and 5200 students, and is currently located on two campuses - Ås, about 30 km south of Oslo, and Adamstuen in Oslo. In 2020, the new research- and education-building for veterinary science will be completed and all of NMBU will then be located at Campus Ås.

The Department of Plant Sciences (IPV), Faculty of Biosciences (BIOVIT), has a vacant 3-year postdoctoral position. The position is part of a 4-year competitive research project, funded by the Research Council of Norway.


The main objective of the Faculty of Biosciences is to contribute to the development of sustainable agriculture and food production systems through basic and applied research in plants, animals and fish (aquaculture). For the time being, the research groups are organized in the following teams: Systems Genetics and Bioinformatics, Breeding and Quantitative Genetics, Nutrition, Ethology and Animal Welfare, Agroecology, Genetics and Plant Breeding, Food Crops, Plant Biology and Biotechnology, and Plant Protection.

The faculty has a Centre for Research-based Innovation (SFI) - Foods of Norway. The faculty is responsible for bachelor- and master programs in Biology, Animal Science and Plant Science, and international master programs in Agroecology, Plant Science, Aquaculture, Animal Breeding Genetics and Feed Manufacturing Technology.  The faculty is responsible for Ph.d programs in Animal Science and Aquaculture, and Plant Sciences.  The faculty has 480 bachelor and master students, and 90 ph.d students.

The faculty has approximately 220 employees including permanent and temporary scientific staff including technicians and 18 administrative positions.


Research project

A fundamental problem in plant biology is how plants orchestrate their shoot architecture. A surge of recent research focuses on how annual plants regulate branching, and existing models represent some distinct herbaceous model systems. In contrast, virtually nothing is known about the processes that regulate branching in woody perennials. In the woody perennial Populus, additional layers of regulation are likely to be present due to the structural complexity of the axillary buds, and the unique feature that they pass through winter(s) before activation can occur. The current project investigates the molecular control of communication during axillary bud activation in Populus, placing it in a cell and tissue context.

Main tasks

  • Establish and carry out experiments with Populus ramets.
  • Decipher mechanisms involved in branch activation.
  • Participate supervision of a PhD student
  • Initiate and facilitate publication and dissemination


Academic qualifications

Required Academic qualifications

  • A PhD in Plant Biology or Plant Developmental Biology
  • Excellent and documented research expertise
