The Baxter Lab (www.baxterlab.org) at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center is recruiting an enthusiastic postdoctoral associate to combine ionomics (high-throughput elemental profiling) and genetics to identify genes and gene x environment interactions in plant species. The successful candidate will analyze existing quantitative genetics data and elemental profiling data to create biological hypotheses and knowledge.
A Ph. D in a field related to plant bioinformatics (i.e. plant biology, genetics, bioinformatics, genomics, computer science, statistics) is required. Candidates should be able to demonstrate familiarity with computational/bioinformatics approaches.
Candidates should provide a current CV, list of at least three contacts for recommendation, and a cover letter that includes a statement of past research experience, an outline of future research objectives, and career goals.
Please email all application materials to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Baxter Lab - Postdoc’ in the subject line.
