Hi All,

The following postdoc position is open in my lab.

The Western Regional Research Center, Genomics & Gene Discovery 
Research Unit, Albany, CA is seeking a temporary full-time research 
affiliate position to develop a population of sequence-indexed 
insertional mutants in the model grass Brachypodium distachyon. 
Brachypodium is rapidly emerging as a model system and the complete 
genome sequence will be available shortly. This project to develop 
community resources is part of a 3 year grant funded by the US 
Department of Energy. The incumbent will work closely with a group of 
Brachypodium researchers working in several areas including: complete 
genome sequencing, physical mapping, high-density SNP mapping, 
chemical mutagenesis, evaluation of new germplasm and proteomics. The 
mutant population will also be screened for phenotypes relevant to 
biomass production. The ultimate goal of the lab is to gain the 
knowledge necessary to optimize grasses for use as an alternative, 
environmentally friendly source of fuel. A minimum of a Master's 
degree in molecular biology or related biological science is 
required. Knowledge of plants, transposons and tissue culture are 
desirable. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with 
experience. U.S. citizenship is required. For more information please 
contact Dr. John Vogel at 510-559-6117 or

CV and contact information for three references to Dr. John Vogel at

until filled. USDA/ARS is an equal opportunity employer and provider.
