Postdoctoral Research position in soybean transformation and genome engineering in Albany, CA.
A postdoctoral position is available to investigate recombinase-mediated cassette exchange (RMCE) gene stacking technology in soybean. The postdoc will be supervised by James Thomson (USDA) as part of a USDA-BASF funded research project. The position will be located in the USDA-ARS Western Regional Research Center in Albany, California. The incumbent will develop novel molecular tools for genetic engineering of soybean and other crop plants. They will construct transformation vectors and generate genetically engineered soybean using Agrobacterium-mediated transformation methods. Recombinase Mediated Cassette Exchange (RMCE) technology will be used to perform a series of site-specific gene stacking events over three generations within the soy genome. The transgenes stack
