Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately to study different
aspects of soybean genomics and genetics.
1. One position, funded by a recent NSF Plant Genome grant, will
focus on the development and analysis of large, mutagenized populations
of soybean. For this position, prior experience with plant molecular
biology and genetics would be preferable.
2. The Second position focuses on the identification and mapping of
soybean genes involved in innate immunity to pathogens. For this
position, prior training in plant pathology and plant molecular biology
is preferred. Experience with plant genetics will also be a plus.
In both cases, candidates for these positions should have a solid track
record of academic and research achievement. Both are challenging
positions and part of larger cooperative projects. Salary will be
competitive and commensurate with experience. Suitable candidates should
email their curriculum vita and letter of interest (identifying which of
the two positions is sought) to
