Post-doctoral Researcher in genetics of haploid induction in plants
A post-doctoral researcher position is available in the Comai laboratory. The Comai laboratory is a plant genomics laboratory at the University of California at Davis. and affiliated with the department of Plant Biology. It is located in the Genome Center, a state-of-the-art genomic research facility, and has an existing staff of about fifteen people).
We are looking for a candidate with experience and strong interest in plant genetics and genomics to integrate an NSF-funded project aimed at investigating the mechanisms underlying haploid induction in potato. The research involves genetic analysis and gene mapping, as well as possibly cytology, genomics, bioinformatics, molecular biology, and other related techniques.
The successful candidate will be expected to work collaboratively with other members in the group, participate in lab meetings, departmental retreats and train graduate and undergraduate students.
