The Forestry and Agricultural Biotechnology Institute (FABI) based at the University of Pretoria is a globally recognized
center with research focused broadly on thehealth of plants and plant products. The institute also accounts for the fact that
the University of Pretoria is listed as one of theworld’s top five centers to study fungi.
FABI is happy to announce the availability of two post-doctoral research fellowships dedicated to the study of fungi. More
specifically, the successful candidates will conduct research on the fungal genus Fusarium including pursuing questions
relating to the taxonomy and evolutionary genomics of these fungi important to plant and human health. At FABI,
the post-doctoral fellows will join a large and internationally recognized team of researchers working on a broad range of
topics relating to Fusarium species.
The two post-doctoral fellows will work in close collaboration with colleagues at the Westerdijk Fungal Biodiversity Institute
in the Netherlands. They will thus also have opportunities to engage closely with collaborators globally and to benefit from
international science networking. Funding for the fellowships will be at a competitive level and dependent on the experience
and accomplishments of the incumbents.
