A postdoctoral position is immediately available in the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences at Oklahoma State University. This postdoctoral research fellow will join a cooperative research project to fine map and clone a major QTL for resistance to greenbug (i.e. aphid) in sorghum (Theor. Appl. Genet. 117:117-124). The postdoctoral fellow will work in the USDA-ARS research laboratory of Dr. Yinghua Huang in collaboration with Dr. Liuling Yan of Oklahoma State University at Stillwater. The incumbent will design and implement research experiments to develop gene markers to saturate the QTL region, identify and map candidate genes, and characterize genetic mechanisms of greenbug resistance in sorghum.



The successful applicant should have a strong background in genetics, molecular biology, plant breeding, or related discipline. Experience in QTL analysis, construction of genetic and physical maps, and annotation and application of genomic sequences are desirable.  Documented ability to communicate effectively in English both writing research publication and spoken language is required. Review of applications will begin December 25, 2011, and continue until the position is filled.
