, 2010Candidates should be a molecular biologist or plant biotechnologist with affinity to bioinformatics and interest in insect-plant interactionsStudy Subject: Biology, Plant Biotechnology or Plant Sciences Employer: Wageningen University Level: PhD Scholarship Description: Cucumber is one of the most important vegetables in the world and its genome has recently been sequenced. In the proposed research we will exploit this information to improve cucumber traits involved in indirect plant defense (enhancing biological control) and to identify new genes that are (strongly) induced by spider mites and thrips, two major pest herbivores in cucumber. In response to herbivory, plants release a
