My lab has been pushing the limits of what can be non-destructively measured in photosynthetic carbon metabolism for the past 15 years, developing cutting edge technology as needed. This has included pioneering the combination of high-frequency stable isotope laser spectroscopy with gas exchange, development of high-speed measurements photosynthetic responses to variable environmental conditions (e.g. RACiR approaches), construction of custom gas exchange chambers for the direct measurement of Ci, and development of microneedle systems for continuous measurement of plant water potential.
We will soon receive funding, together with colleagues in the UNM Department of Physics and Astronomy, Sandia National Labs, and Vanderbilt University, to develop methods for visualizing carbon metabolism across scales ranging from the organelle to multiple cell layers and tissues, simultaneously with measurements of photosynthetic gas exchange. We are seeking a highly motivated person with expertise in stable isotope gas exchange, confocal microscopy, and/or biochemistry (all three preferred, but unexpected) who is interested in a post-doctoral fellowship in my lab at the University of New Mexico, located next to the beautiful Sandia mountains.
The anticipated start date is Nov-Dec 2018 and the position would be for up to three years. Candidates should send a brief statement of interest, CV, and up to 3 relevant publications to David Hanson at email@example.com by August 15th for best consideration.
