The Genetic Discovery Group of DuPont Crop Genetics is looking for a
highly motivated Ph.D. level scientist with a strong background in
plant molecular biology. The successful candidate will participate
in the discovery and characterization of novel small RNAs in plants.
The project will involve the analysis of small RNA expression in
Arabidopsis, corn and rice. Functional studies, via overexpression
and underexpression of particular small RNAs, will also be performed.
Individuals with a background in small RNA analysis (siRNAs/miRNAs)
are especially encouraged to apply. Bioinformatics experience would
be helpful, but not required.
DuPont is a global research- and technology-based company committed
to the miracles of science. The mission of the Genetic Discovery
Group is to identify agriculturally important genes in crop and model
species. Our facility provides state-of-the-art instrumentation for
genomic approaches, such as high throughput sequencing, high density
microarray analysis, and advanced bioinformatic systems, as well as
access to the world-wide field testing resources of Pioneer Hi-Bred
and interactions with a thriving scientific community. We are located
at the Experimental Station in Wilmington, Delaware, in an area that
offers an attractive lifestyle with easy access to various cultural,
academic and recreational activities in the middle East Coast region.
DuPont offers an attractive salary and comprehensive benefits.
