A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Yan Lu’s lab at Western Michigan University (WMU) to study the connections between photosynthesis and amino acid metabolism.

Carbon metabolism and production of amino acids in plants are important for plant fitness and food, fiber and fuel for humans and animals. The overall goal of the project is to understand the interactions between photosynthesis and amino acid metabolism. This project will computationally integrate photosynthetic parameters, amino acid profiles, and carbon-to-nitrogen ratio of Arabidopsis mutants to identify novel genes in these biological processes.

This postdoc will conduct focused studies on specific genes/proteins/mutants identified from the phenotypic correlation analysis. The candidate will work in the Lu laboratory at WMU as part of a collaborative research team at WMU (Dr. Lu’s group) and Michigan State University (Rob Last’s group). WMU is a public research institution with ~20,000 undergraduates and ~5,000 graduates. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in biology-related fields at the time of employment. Experience in photosynthesis, plant metabolism, and molecular biology is highly desirable. Funding is available for three years. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.
