We are looking for a Research Assistant (Master degree) who is an expert in molecular biology techniques.
We are working on the rice developmental biology field using molecular biology, biochemical and transgenic approaches. A RA candidate experienced in plant tissue culture / transformation (rice, etc) will be beneficial. (植物組培或轉殖)
We encourage people who are ambitious for publication and interested in plant science to apply to this position.
Also, we are working in Tainan Science Park (南科, 台南) and there will be also a chance for international collaboration (Basic English communication skills are required).
All working conditions are based on the general rules of Academia Sinica.
Please contact Dr. Seonghoe Jang (email@example.com) and/or Ms. Jess Li (firstname.lastname@example.org) with
(1) a CV
(2) a recommendation letter (or E-mail), at least.
