Job Type: Postdoctoral
Postdoctoral research associate (GS 9-11) This position involves
research aimed at improving the conversion of agricultural
commodities to biofuel with a focus on the manipulation of starch
biosynthesis and utilization in wheat. Specific goals will include
the transformation of wheat with genes encoding enzymes and
regulatory molecules involved in starch metabolism. The impact on
quality, global patterns of gene expression, starch granule size and
composition in the mature and developing amyloplast will be assessed.
The information gained will contribute to efforts to increase starch
production, modify starch properties and understand the effects of
environment on starch biosynthesis and starch properties in wheat.
The incumbent should have excellent oral and written abilities to
efficiently communicate scientific findings. Knowledge of molecular
biology, organelle isolation, and starch metabolism is desirable.
