Role of calcium and ROS in signaling pathways activated by drought stress in plants

Please note that the job is no longer active!

Drought is one of major environmental stresses severely affecting plant growth and crop productivity. Plants have evolved a variety of mechanisms to perceive external stimuli and to transduce the stress signal for activation of the optimal response. The response to stress requires a crosstalk between different signaling pathways activated in different cell compartments, but to date little is known about the role of inter-organelles crosstalk in these signaling processes. The main goal of this research project is to unravel the signaling network in the early phases of response to drought with particular emphasis on the role of inter-organelles crosstalk in these signaling processes. In particular calcium and reactive oxygen species (ROS) signaling and autophagy regulation involved in stress response will be studied.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
