Postdoctoral Positions in Polyploidy and Epigenetics at The 
University of Texas at Austin

We seek highly motivated scientists to work in a dynamic plant 
genetics and genomics laboratory. Depending on research interests and 
training, postdoctoral fellows will have options to work on 
functional diversification of duplicate genes and genomes and/or 
genetic and epigenetic mechanisms for non-additive gene regulation in 
Arabidopsis and cotton allopolyploids 
(http://polyploidy.biosci.utexas.edu). The projects are funded by the 
NIH and NSF.

Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. in Genetics, Plant Biology, 
Plant Biochemistry or Computational Biology with a solid training in 
Mendelian genetics  or evolutionary genetics  Demonstrated interest 
in genome evolution and epigenetic regulation of gene expression will 
likely be helpful, as will technical skills in DNA sequence analysis, 
RNA detection, protein assays, microRNAs, microarrays, computational 
analysis of genomic and microarray data. The positions are available 
immediately. Salary is competitive with experience.

Interested candidates should send a brief statement of career goals 
and a copy of curriculum vitae including names and addresses of three 
references via email to: Z. Jeffrey Chen (zjchen from mail.utexas.edu).

The Chen lab is located in the Section of Molecular Cell and 
Developmental Biology (MCDB) (http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/MCDB/) and 
the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology 
(http://www.icmb.utexas.edu/). There will be excellent opportunities 
for postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to interact with 
faculty and students among dynamic research groups in the MCDB, 
Integrative Biology (http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/IB/), and the 
Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics 
(http://ccbb.biosci.utexas.edu/).

According to the MONEY magazine and FORBES, Austin is one of the best 
places to live and for business in the US. The University of Texas at 
Austin (http://www.utexas.edu) is an Affirmative Action/Equal 
Opportunity employer.
