Project Description:
A postdoc position in functional genomics is available in Biosciences
Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). The selected candidate
will join a large team of investigators to systematically study
protein-encoding genes and non-coding RNAs relevant to biofuel
production as well as small signaling proteins mediating plant-microbe
interactions. The team activities include transcriptome sequencing,
genome resequencing, large-scale comparative genomics, proteomics,
metabolomics and functional genomics.  The project is funded through
DOE BioEnergy Science Center
(genomicscience.energy.gov/centers/besc.shtml) and the Plant-Microbe
Interfaces (PMI) project (https://pmi.ornl.gov:8443/pmi/index.jsp).
This research is facilitated by a full range of state-of-the-art

Required disciplines/background:
Successful candidate should have working knowledge of molecular
biology and computational biology as well as an understanding of
regulation of gene expression; some background in protein function is
also desirable.

This position welcomes individuals with very strong experimental
skills, being able to do productive research downstream of
bioinformatics analysis. Applicants are expected to have a Ph.D.
degree in genetics, molecular biology, biochemistry, or related
fields. Preference will be given to candidates with a relevant
publication record. Excellent oral and written communication skills
and ability to work in a team are required.
