Default Postdoc position available in Arabidopsis evolution

<x-flowed>Post-doc on the evolutionary genetics of adaptation in
Arabidopsis thaliana

A NSF funded Post-doctoral position is available as part of a collaboration
to explore the evolution of physiological adaptation in Arabidopsis
thaliana. The goal of the project is to identify and characterize genes
underlying naturally-occurring variation in drought adaptation using
genome-wide molecular techniques and whole-plant physiology. Our approach
focuses on screens of A. thaliana accessions from around the world, QTL and
linkage disequilibrium mapping of a set of core phenotypes, and studies of
natural variation in gene expression. A two-year post-doctoral position at
UT Austin is available to pursue research on various aspects of
evolutionary genetics, including fine-mapping and efforts to characterize
and clone ecologically-important QTL.

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a Ph.D degree and
with the demonstrated ability to carry out outstanding research in Plant
Genetics. The successful candidate must have experience in high-throughput
genotyping and a strong background in molecular biology. Preference will be
given to candidates with the following skills needed for map based cloning:
DNA sequencing, cloning of PCR products, plant transformation, RT-PCR, and
SNP genotyping. We also emphasize the ability to interact and work
collaboratively with others. The post-doc will co-ordinate closely with our
physiological genetic and computational efforts, as well as a technician,
graduate students, and undergraduate researchers at UT Austin.

Application review begins immediately and will continue until the position
is filled. Applications should include a brief cover letter outlining
qualifications and interests, curriculum vitae, reprints or thesis
chapters, and the names and addresses of three references. Send
applications to
