Position: We are seeking applicants for two Senior Scientist Positions to fill two variable time term positions funded by the United Soybean Board in Plant Genomics, Plant Nematology and Molecular Genetics.
The goals of the research are to identify genes involved in plant microbe interactions using primarily reverse genetics and functional genomics approaches. Among the duties, the candidate will be using a mutagenized soybean population developed in the lab to identify and characterize candidate genes for resistance to soybean cyst nematode and sudden death syndrome infections. The research topics for the positions are not restricted to TILLING, but encompass other nematology and molecular analyses to identify genetic factors underlying plant microbe interactions, analyses of candidate genes and fine genetic and physical mapping of genomic segments harboring quantitative trait loci for economically important genes in soybean using advanced intercross recombinant inbred lines.
Effective Date: As soon as possible.
Qualifications: Applicants for the position must have a Ph.D. in plant biology, breeding, genetics, plant pathology, nematology, molecular biology, bioinformatics, or genomics; excellent oral and written communication skills; and a substantial record of peer-reviewed publications and professional contributions that demonstrate proven stature in research recognized nationally or internationally.
Duties: The successful candidate(s) will be involved in:
