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
equipment/facilities.

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.

Qualifications:
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.

Technical Questions:
