DuPont Crop Genetics, Wilmington, DE, USA
The Genetic Discovery Group of DuPont Crop Genetics is looking for a highly motivated individual with strong backgrounds in plant genetics and molecular biology. The successful candidate will utilize genetic and molecular approaches to investigate regulatory circuits mediated by miRNAs. The end-product of this research should be the identification of sequence and/or stoichiometric requirements for miRNA function, using Arabidopsis as a model system. Forward genetic screens will also be employed, in order to identify novel components of miRNA-mediated silencing.
A PhD is required, with a strong background in plant molecular biology. Must have extensive experience with the following techniques: DNA/RNA isolation, blot hybridization, cloning techniques, PCR amplification, small RNA isolation/detection, and protein detection using immunoblotting. In addition, experience with Arabidopsis growth/phenotyping and genetic mapping techniques is highly desirable.
Qualified candidates should apply by logging on to the DuPont/Pioneer job website at http://www.pioneer.com/employment/openings/search.asp, and searching for job number 4349BR.
