Postdoctoral Position in Soybean Genetics and Genomics
A full-time Postdoctoral Research Associate position in Soybean Genetics an=
d Genomics is available in the Department of Agronomy at Purdue University.=
 The successful candidate will apply integrated approaches (such as QTL map=
ping, association mapping, genome scan, reverse genetics, and comparative g=
enomics) to identifying and characterizing genes/QTLs that underlie complex=
 traits in soybean, and be expected to contribute to a variety of studies o=
n structural, functional and evolutionary genomics in Dr. Jianxin Ma=92s la=
boratory (see our recent work at http://www.ag.purdue.edu/agry/Pages/maj.as=

NA hands-on techniques (e.g., RT-PCR, sequencing and sequence analysis, rec=
ombinant DNA and transformation technologies), linkage and association mapp=
ing, and/or comparative genomics is highly desired. Experience in high thro=
ughput genomic data mining and bioinformatics (e.g., PERL programming) woul=
d be a definite plus. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualificat=
ions. The position will be available from May 1, 2011 or shortly thereafter=
