A postdoctoral scientist position to study rice systems biology and ecology
is open in the laboratory of Michael Purugganan at the New York University
(NYU) Center for Genomics and Systems Biology.  The position is part of
large multi-year NSF Plant Genome Research Program collaborative project
between the laboratory of Michael Purugganan, the group of Rich Bonneau at
NYU, and the laboratory of Endang Septiningsih at the International Rice
Research Institute (IRRI). The postdoctoral fellow will undertake a study
of global gene expression in rice grown in the field in the Philippines
using RNA-Seq, and will study the gene networks that are associated with
ecologically relevant field environmental conditions. The position is an
opportunity to work at the interface of genomics, plant biology, and
ecology, and will include some fieldwork at IRRI in the Philippines.



Applicants should have:

(1) A strong background in plant molecular biology/systems biology

(2) Experience in experimental and computational analyses of genome-wide
gene expression

(3) An interest in plant evolutionary and ecological genomics.



Interested parties can email a CV and names of three references to
mp132 from nyu.edu Applications received before 30 April 2012 will receive full
consideration.



Our lab is located in historic and vibrant Greenwich Village in downtown
Manhattan in New York City.  NYU is one of the world=92s leading research
universities and the Center for Genomics and Systems Biology is housed in a
new, state-of-the-art facility with 14 faculty members who study genomics
and systems biology across all kingdoms of life.  For more information on
the Center, please go to http://cgsb.as.nyu.edu/page/home
