The Baxter Lab (www.baxterlab.org) and Mockler lab (www.mocklerlab.org) at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center are recruiting multiple enthusiastic postdoctoral associates to work on a DOE funded project studying the response to abiotic stresses in Sorghum and Setaria. Candidates will work at the nexus of phenotyping, quantitative genetics, comparative genetics and genomics. Large datasets from field and controlled environment phenotyping, genome sequencing and transcriptomics are available and more will be produced during the project.
A PhD in a field related to plant bioinformatics (i.e. plant biology, quantitative genetics, bioinformatics, genomics, computer science, statistics) is required. Candidates must be able to demonstrate experience in computational/bioinformatics and statistical 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 ‘BaxterMockler Lab - Postdoc’ in the subject line.
