Default A Postdoctoral Position in Wheat Genetics



Please help me announce a postdoctoral job as described below. Thanks.
Dr. Yinghua Huang

A Postdoctoral Position in Wheat Genetics

Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA



Cereal aphids such as greenbug and Russian wheat aphid are the two major
pests of wheat worldwide, and they cause millions of dollars of losses
to this important food crop each year. We have been identifying sources
of aphid resistance and developing high-performance wheat
germplasm/cultivars with genetic resistance to the aphid pests. It is
important to develop a better understanding the mechanisms underlying
host-plant resistance. Thus, a postdoctoral position is available
immediately to a person to join a cooperative research project under Dr.
Yinghua Huang of the USDA-ARS in collaboration with Dr. Brett Carver of
Oklahoma State University. The incumbent will conduct experiments to
analyze genetic diversity of aphid resistance and characterize genetic
mechanisms of aphid resistance in winter wheat through genetic and
genomic approaches. Research would involve developing molecular markers,
genotyping and QTL mapping, and using genetic and breeding methodologies
to identify genes controlling aphid resistance and to incorporate them
into advanced breeding lines.



Candidates should have a strong background in genetics, plant breeding,
or related discipline. Experience in molecular marker technology,
statistical/bioinformatic analysis of data, and germplasm enhancement
research are desirable. Documented ability to communicate effectively
in English both writing research publication and spoken language. The
position is initially for two years and may be extended up to three
years. Closing data: March 1, 2009, or continue until the position is
filled.



Please send a letter of research interest and professional goals,
curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by email
to: [Only registered users see links. ]. For additional information, please
