A postdoctoral position is available in the Walia Lab at University of Nebraska-Lincoln to study heat tolerance mechanisms in rice. This position will focus on molecular and genetic characterization of heat stress response in rice during seed development. 

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in Plant Biology, Molecular Biology, or Plant Genetics, or a closely related field at the time of hiring. Preference will be given to candidates with evidence of publications and strong interest in using molecular and functional genomics approaches. Salary is commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Interested candidate should apply by email to Dr. Harkamal Walia (hwalia2@unl.edu). The email should include the following: (1) CV, (2) publications, and (3) contact information for 3 references.

The goal of this project is to develop molecular understanding of interactions between developmental events and heat stress). Experience in gene editing, mutant analysis, seed biology, molecular interactions, epigenetics and expression analysis are highly desirable. More information about the research program is available at http://cropstressgenomics.org and wrchr.org.
