Position Title:	Research Associate (Post Doc)

The Department of Botany and Plant Pathology has an immediate opening 
for a Research Associate (Post Doc) to work on a cereal plant genome 
wide gene expression analysis.  This is a full-time, (1.0 FTE), 
12-month, fixed-term position working in Dr. Pankaj Jaiswal's lab 
(http://www.science.oregonstate.edu/bpp/).

How to Apply:	
To review the position description and apply, go to posting #0004455 at 
http://oregonstate.edu/jobs.  When applying, you will be required to 
electronically submit your application, a Letter of Intent, and a 
Curriculum Vitae (including 3 references).  For full consideration, 
apply by 07/31/09 when review of applications will begin.

This position is required to develop a comprehensive gene expression 
catalog of rice and other cereal plant genes in various the plant 
development stages. The project includes histological studies, whole 
genome transcriptome and proteome data generation and analysis. The 
incumbent will be responsible for designing microarray and whole genome 
transcriptome/digital gene expression experiment(s) using newer high 
throughput sequencing technologies developed by Illumina, 
454-LifeSciences, etc. Development of methods suitable to the 
experimental conditions and plant material being investigated, carrying 
out the experiments on analysis of anatomical samples using microscopy 
and whole genome transcriptome, data analysis and publication of the 
results in peer reviewed journals and submission to major data 
repositories. Besides this, the incumbent will also participate in lab's 
outreach activities, help in mentoring undergraduates and graduate students.

Successful candidate will work with existing lab personnel and various 
collaborators that includes project PIs, faculty, highly trained PhD. 
level bioinformatics specialists, software developers and the 
department's fellow postdoc and graduate students.


Required qualifications:
- PhD in Plant Biology, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Biochemistry, 
Biological
Chemistry, Metabolomics, or related field.
- Worked previously on gene expression data generation and analysis in 
their PhD studies or postdoctoral training. Demonstrated expertise in 
studying plant development, anatomy, histology, microarrays, gene 
expression, proteomics, genetics and general understanding of plant 
biochemistry and gene regulation.
- Demonstrated ability for independent and critical thinking, excellent 
communication skills in oral and written presentations in English and 
ability to work in teams.
