Postdoctoral Position in Plant Genomics/Bioinformatics
A full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Plant Genomics/Bioinformatics is available in the Department of Agronomy at Purdue University. The successful candidate will investigate transposon-mediated gene and genome evolution and functional consequences in soybean and some other plant species by computational and bioinformatics approaches, and be expected to contribute to a variety of studies on structural, functional and evolutionary genomics in Dr. Jianxin Mas laboratory (see some recent publications, Tian et al. 2009 Genome Research, Tian et al. 2010 PNAS; Du et al. 2010 Plant Cell; Du et al. 2010 BMC Genomics; Du et al. 2010 Plant Journal). We are part of Purdue University Agricultural Genomics Center equipped with the state of the art genomics and bioinformatics facilities, and are member of the Plant Biology and Molecular Evolutionary Genetics training groups of Purdue University Interdisciplinary Life Science Program (PULSe).
Applicants should have a PhD degree in Genetics/Genomics, Bioinformatics/Computational Biology, or related disciplines. Familiarity with computer programming (e.g., PERL) and experience with genomic data mining and sequence analyses are highly desirable. Experience with basic molecular techniques is a plus. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
Please email your cover letter, curriculum vitae, and names and addresses of three references to Dr. Jianxin Ma (maj from purdue.edu), Department of Agronomy, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47907.
