*** Postdoctoral Opportunity ****

Photomorphogenesis as Applied to High-Value Horticultural Crops

We have support for an innovative project that requires the talents of a postdoctoral researcher.

We are examining how light can control high-value characteristics of various horticultural crops.  Experiments are fast and the results are meaningful to industry. The experiments exploit our unique LED system, providing a niche for rapid publication.  All experiments are well underway, so you will be integrating with an established program, not starting from the beginning.

A candidate MUST possess some background in photomorphogenesis or other aspect of light-mediated plant responses.  The ideal candidate will also possess skills in plant physiology and molecular biology. Background in metabolomics or genomics a plus.  Experience with HPLC or GC/MS is also a plus.

The appointment is for one year starting asap and may be extended based on results.

Please send a CV and cover letter asap.  I will start interviewing immediately by skype as qualified applications are received.
