The project is aimed at studying the molecular mechanisms that regulate the development of the main apple physiopathies that occur during storage (superficial scald and bitter pit), that represent a significant economic damage. The onset of such physiopathies at the end of storage represents a loss, not only because of the product that is lost but also for the energy invested in the preservation of the batches of apples for periods that can be extended even up to 6-9 months. In order to prevent the occurrence of such phenomena, it is important to identify factors that may cause the development of physiopathies so that only apple batches that are not prone to develop them should be subjected to storage. To date, the mechanisms responsible for the onset of apple scald and bitter pit are unknown. This project aims to conduct a study on the molecular factors associated with scald and bitter pit.

The selection will be carried out through the evaluation of degrees, scientific-professional curriculum, scientific outputs and an interview.
The interview will be held at the Department DAFNAE Viale dell'Università 16 35020 Legnaro (PD) Italy. Remote interviews are not allowed.
