We have 2 Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions in the following
(1) Maize Transformation
(2) Gene Targeting in plants.
Below is a brief description of these positions.
We seek highly qualified applicants to join a team of researchers
working to improve plant transformation technology, with a particular
focus on maize. Research projects may involve gene targeting,
chromatin elements such as MARs and insulators, or other techniques
to reduce position effects and gene silencing while improving gene
transfer and enhancing stable and predictable gene expression.
A PhD is required in a relevant biological discipline. The
successful applicant will have strong molecular skills and a track
record of peer-reviewed publication in chromatin structure, gene
expression, cell/developmental biology, or plant transformation.
Experience with plant systems is desirable, but not essential.
Strong interpersonal skills and a willingness to learn and apply new
techniques are important, as is the ability to work independently
while functioning as part of a team.
