Postdoctoral Associate - Nusinow Lab
We are currently looking to fill an opening beginning April 1st, 2014 for a motivated and enthusiastic scientist to work on uncovering the molecular mechanisms by which the circadian clock regulates growth and development in plants. We combine genetic, biochemical, molecular, proteomic, high throughput phenotyping and genomic methods in plants, such as Arabidopsis, Brachypodium and Setaria to gain deep understanding of the components that connect the circadian oscillator to specific output networks. Ideal candidates would be interested in circadian biology, plant physiology and development, possess a Ph.D. in either genetics, biochemistry, cell, developmental, molecular biology or plant physiology. Candidates with experience in any of the following techniques are encouraged to apply: qPCR, ChIP, protein expression and purification, mass spectrometry, genetic analysis, automated visual and bioluminescence imaging and analysis, bioinformatics, molecular biology, yeast-based interaction assays, and methods in plant physiology. Candidates with an interest in transitioning into plants are also encouraged to apply.
Candidates should provide a current CV, list of at least three contacts for recommendation, and a cover letter that includes a statement of past research experience and future interests.
The international and interdisciplinary research environment at the Danforth Center offers an excellent opportunity for career development. Salaries are competitive and commensurate with experience, and the Danforth Center offers an excellent benefits package including medical and 403B matching. The Danforth Center is currently ranked in the top ten of places to work in scientific research, and the St Louis region is a rich environment to work and live.
To apply, send a cover letter, a detailed CV, and the names and contact information for three references to:
