Natural Variation in AM Symbiosis in Medicago truncatula
A post-doctoral position is available to explore natural variation in AM symbiosis in Medicago truncatula. The project was initiated several years ago and seeks to determine the molecular basis of natural diversity among AM symbioses in M. truncatula, through genome-wide association mapping (GWAS). So far, over 170 M. truncatula accessions have been phenotyped for AM symbiosis and SNP's associated with several AM symbiosis phenotypes have been identified through GWAS. Analysis of candidate genes is in progress.
Requirements: Applicants must have a Ph.D., demonstrated expertise in genetics, experience with plant-microbe interactions and a strong publication record. Expertise with association mapping and a strong statistical background are beneficial but not essential.
To Apply: Applicants should submit a CV, the names of three references and a letter summarizing research interests and relevant experience to Dr. Maria J. Harrison, (mjh78 from cornell.edu.) (Job # 2012-24).
Project Location: The Boyce Thompson Institute is a non-profit research institute affiliated Cornell University, Ithaca, New York, www.bti.cornell.edu<http://www.bti.cornell.edu/>. EOE M/F/D/V
