Postdoctoral Research Assistant position immediately available in Dr. Joshua Widhalm’s lab in the Department of Horticulture and Center for Plant Biology at Purdue University (USA - Indiana)

publié le

A Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is open in Dr. Joshua Widhalm’s lab in the Department of Horticulture and Center for Plant Biology at Purdue University with an immediately available start date.

The applicant filling this position is expected to actively advance research on projects related to gene discovery in plant natural product metabolism and investigating herbicide volatility.

The Widhalm lab uses functional genomics approaches combined with protein biochemistry, reverse genetics, and metabolic profiling to identify, screen, and characterize genes/enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of allelopathic quinones, which have the potential for being developed into natural product-based herbicides.

The Widhalm lab is also engaged in collaborative efforts to study factors influencing the volatility of the herbicide dicamba and to elucidate the biosynthesis of the plant hormone salicylic acid.

The applicant filling this position is expected to contribute to writing research publications, grant applications, and research progress reports. Applicants should
(i) have a Ph.D in Biochemistry, Molecular Genetics, Plant Science or a related field, (ii) have a background in molecular biology, biochemistry, genetics, plant tissue culture, metabolic profiling, and/or specialized metabolism,
(iii) be self-motivated and able to conduct experiments independently, and
(iv) possess excellent written and verbal communication skills. Previous experience in gene discovery, performing biochemical assays, and HPLC-based metabolic profiling is highly desired.

If interested, please send a CV, contact information for three references, and a brief statement about your qualifications for the position and your career goals to jwidhalm@purdue.edu.
