A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Tadege’s laboratory at Oklahoma State University, Institute for Agricultural Biosciences in Ardmore to study the molecular basis of leaf blade development and flowering time in chickpea and sorghum (please refer to publications: Plant Cell 2014 Feb;26(2):650-64; New Phytologist 2016 May;210(3):946-59; PLoS Genetics 2017 Mar 6;13(3):e1006649 for reference). We are looking for a talented and enthusiastic postdoctoral scientist with experience in WGS-based gene cloning from induced mutants, mutant screening, sequencing data analysis, and plant transformation. Ph.D. in Plant Molecular Biology or Biochemistry is required. The successful incumbent will work on USDA funded project to dissect the molecular basis of leaf blade development and control of flowering time by cloning genes from deletion mutant populations and mapping populations of chickpea and sorghum using WGS and GBS approaches. Candidates must have solid experience in Plant molecular biology techniques and sequence analysis demonstrated by strong publication record. Proficiency in spoken and written English is required. The position must be filled by the end of January 2018 and will be initially for one year, but will be renewed depending on performance and availability of funds.
