ASSISTANT SCIENTIST - POST-DOCTORAL - PLANT MOLECULAR BIOLOGY

The Forest Biology Group at the Institute of Paper Science and 
Technology, located on the campus of Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA, has 
an opening for a post-doctoral researcher to work on an NSF-funded 
project on the Genomics of Embryogenesis in Loblolly Pine. More 
details of the project can be found at 
https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/servlet/showaward?award=0217594

The successful candidate should possess a PhD in plant physiology, 
plant molecular biology/biochemistry or a related subject. Working 
experience of modern techniques in plant molecular biology is 
required and familiarity with conifer biology would be an advantage 
but is not essential. Research will involve cloning and functional 
analysis of genes involved in Loblolly Pine embryogenesis and some 
physiological analysis of Loblolly Pine embryos at different stages 
of development. The project is collaboration with The Institute of 
Genomic Research (www.tigr.org). The appointee will be located in 
Atlanta but some trips to TIGR are envisioned. The position provides 
excellent opportunity to gain experience in microarray technology and 
bioinformatics.

The successful candidate will be energetic and capable of project 
leadership, as some advising and direction of technicians and 
students may be required.  S/he will be capable of independent work 
and will be responsible for day to day running of their project; 
overall direction will be agreed upon with the principal 
investigator. S/he will participate in writing papers, reports and 
preparing grants as determined by the principle investigator and will 
present results at internal and external meetings as required. S/he 
will participate in organizational programs designed to promote lab 
safety and efficiency, as determined by the principal investigator

Publication of results is highly encouraged at IPST and candidates 
with strong publication records, showing evidence of creativity, are 
encouraged to apply. Further details of the position can be obtained 
from Dr. John Cairney (John.Cairney at ipst.edu).
