POSITION AND PROJECT OVERVIEW We are seeking a Postdoc Fellowship Scholar to commit to a one-year postdoctoral position, funded under the MITACS Elevate program, which is renewable for another year, depending on project progress. The project is a collaboration between Terramera, Agriculture and Agri-food Canada (AAFC), and the University of British Columbia (UBC), and studies will be conducted in the AAFC Summerland Research and Development centre and the facilities of both UBC and Terramera in Vancouver, BC. Wheat production suffers from three different types of rust fungi: Puccinia graminis f. sp. tritici causing stem (or black) rust, P. triticina, causing leaf (or brown) rust, and P. striiformis f. sp. tritici , causing stripe (or yellow) rust. These rust diseases continue to cause major yield losses in Canada annually, and in many other wheat-producing areas worldwide. Fungicides are used in the management of rust diseases, but efficacy is limited by many...
