A Postdoctoral Research Associate position is available in the laboratory of Prof. Kyung-Hwan Han in the Department of Horticulture at Michigan State University (MSU). The research in the Han lab focuses on (1) understanding of the molecular mechanisms of secondary growth (i.e., wood formation) (Ko et al. 2004, Plant Physiology 135: 1069-1083; Ko et al., 2007, Plant J 50: 1035-1048; Ko et al., 2009, Plant J 60: 649-665) and (2) regulation of secondary cell wall biosynthesis (Kim et al., 2013, Plant J 73: 26-36; Ko et al., 2014, Ann. Bot. 114: 1099-1107; Kim et al., 2014, Plant J 80: 772-784).
We are seeking a highly motivated post-doctoral research associate to work on the research focus areas. Successful candidate should have an extensive experience in plant molecular biology. Annual salary starts at $47,500 plus fringe benefits. This position is available on December 1, 2018 and is renewable pending successful performance and funding availability. The Han Laboratory is well equipped to carry out the research. In addition, MSU offers a highly stimulating research atmosphere with a vibrant plant science community and provides state-of-the-art, well-run core facilities in genomic, proteomic, protein analytical, bioinformatics and imaging technologies.
