Post-doctoral research fellow position in DNA barcoding of pollen
We are seeking a post-doctoral research fellow position in DNA barcoding of pollen at Emory University. The post-doctoral fellow will be responsible for both developing the methodology and contributing to its broad application (e.g. to forensics, ecology and evolution, and allergy studies). Position can begin as early as September 2013 with an initial appointment of one year, renewable annually for up to 2 additional years (3 total years) contingent on performance. Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. The successful candidate will possess a completed Ph.D. in plant molecular ecology / evolution / genetics or a closely related field, strong laboratory skills in basic plant molecular genetics, excellent written communication skills, solid statistical and computer programming abilities, and a strong work ethic. Additional desirable skills include experience with pollen genetics; experience with next-generation sequencing, including data post-processing; and strong programming skills in a bioinformatic context. The successful candidate will mentor undergraduate and graduate students and will work in an interdisciplinary setting, collaborating with individuals from a range of departments and centers at Emory and other academic institutions. Emory is situated in a wooded corner of Atlanta, a vibrant, diverse, and affordable city with a range of academic, cultural, and outdoor opportunities.
