Postdoctoral position 1
available at the Water and Life Interface Institute – University of Wisconsin-Madison campus: A highly motivated individual is sought to analyze molecular and cellular changes associated with desiccation tolerance in plants and other organisms. These studies will integrate advanced light and electron tomography imaging with molecular genetics and biochemistry, in the laboratory of Dr. Marisa Otegui. Learn more.
Postdoctoral position 2:
available at the Water and Life Interface Institute – Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University campus (Moises Exposito-Alonso Laboratory): We seek to recruit a highly motivated and skillful researcher with training in molecular biology, plant genetics, or bioengineering.
We aim to understand the impacts of climate change on plant species from a molecular evolution angle. The project will leverage ecological genomics modeling to identify genes involved in dehydration tolerance and water use efficiency in Arabidopsis, and will use CRISPR-based genetic engineering, developmental genetics, and microscopy techniques to understand the molecular mechanism of such adaptive genes.
