Two postdoctoral positions are available at University of Nebraska, Lincoln
in the Walia lab.

1.      1.  The goal of the project is to study the epigenetic regulation
of stress response during seed development in rice. Click here for more
information: (http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1121648). The
candidate will use genomics and epigenetic approaches to identify and
characterize candidate genes regulating stress tolerance during seed
development. Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Plant Biology, Cell and
Molecular Biology, Plant Genetics, or a closely related field at the time
hiring. The candidate will work as part of a team in a collaborative
environment. Experience in ChIP-seq, *in situ* hybridization, LCM, NGS
analysis, transgenic and mutant analysis is highly desirable. Publications
record is required. Funding is available for 3 years. Initial appointment
will be for one year and is renewable for up to 3 years based on
satisfactory performance. Salary is commensurate with experience and
qualifications.

2.      2.  A postdoctoral position is available in Walia lab to study the
genetics and phenomics of salt tolerance in rice. Click here for project
description: (http://www.nsf.gov/awardsearch/showAward?AWD_ID=1238125). The
project involves using automated image-based phenotyping, transcriptomics,
and genetic analysis to identify novel sources of salinity tolerance in
rice. This position presents opportunities to work in a group with
quantitative geneticists, bioinformatics and image informatics experts.
Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Plant Biology/Physiology, Plant Genetics,
or a closely related field at the time hiring. Experience in next
generation sequencing, association/QTL mapping, programming in
R/perl/python, handling of large populations and strong statistical skills
is highly desirable. Demonstrated ability to publish research findings is
required. Funding is available for 3 years. Initial appointment will be for
one year and is renewable for up to 3 years based on satisfactory
performance. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Interested candidate should contact Dr. Harkamal Walia (click the link for
contact information http://agronomy.unl.edu/walia). The email should
include the following: (1) CV, (2) publications or in press articles, and
(3) contact information including phone numbers for at least 3 references,
(4) the position for which the candidate is applying. Both positions are
available immediately and are open until filled.
