JOB TITLE
NSF-funded Postdoctoral Research Associate

JOB DESCRIPTION
Seeking an individual to assume a leadership role in the genetic and 
molecular characterization of soybean response to microbial interactions 
with an emphasis on nodulation and how plant response to symbiotic 
interactions differ from response to pathogenic interactions. The project 
will focus on functional analyses of genes identified from Affymetrix and 
cDNA microarray analyses in soybean roots and root hairs in response to 
Bradyrhizobium japonicum inoculation. Analyses may include the use of 
various molecular techniques such as gene fusions, RNAi, and over 
expression to functionally characterize responsive genes of interest, as 
well as additional microarrays of specific treatments.

EDUCATION
Ph. D. in genetics, molecular biology, plant pathology or a related 
discipline is required.  Expertise in plant molecular biology, 
plant-microbe interactions, genomics, tissue culture, and statistics is 
desirable, as are skills in written and oral communications and a 
demonstrated desire and ability to conduct independent research.

SALARY
$32-35,000 per year, commensurate with training and experience.  Funding is 
for three years assuming yearly renewal.

STARTING DATE
July 1, 2006 or when a suitable candidate is available.

CLOSING DATE
For full consideration applications will be reviewed starting May 31, 2006 
and will be continuously reviewed until the position is filled.

APPLICATIONS
Interested persons should send curriculum vitae, copies of transcripts and 
the names and telephone numbers or e-mail addresses of three references to:
