A postdoctoral research position will be available in May 2017 to study the mechanisms underlying seasonal flowering in the Department of Biology at the University of Washington. The immediate goal for our NSF-funded program is to further elucidate the molecular mechanisms of seasonal measurement for flowering in nature.
Recent publications can be found on our website (http://faculty.washington.edu/takato/ <http://faculty.washington.edu/takato/>) and also in PubMed.
The successful candidate will use biochemical and genomic approaches to study the mechanisms of seasonal flowering in Arabidopsis. A strong background in biochemistry will be highly advantageous. The candidate should be fluent in English, have excellent writing skills and a past track record of publishing in well-cited journals. Applicants who have received their PhD degrees within the past three years strongly preferred. Previous experience working in related fields is not necessary. The position will be initially available for one year, with renewal (up to three years) based on performance.
Applications should include a cover letter (1-2 pages) outlining past research and research interests, a CV and contact information for three references, and be sent to Dr. Takato Imaizumi (takato from uw.edu <mailto:takato from uw.edu>). Applicant review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.
Best regards, Takato Imaizumi
