POST DOC RESEARCH SCHOLAR (CLICK TO APPLY)
The Plants for Human Health Institute is seeking a highly motivated and talented scientist with solid lab skills in Arabidopsis genetics and epigenetics to fill an NSF-funded postdoctoral position to study the mechanism of genomic imprinting regulated by active DNA demethylation in Arabidopsis. The focus of this project is to use a combination of molecular biology, genetic, genomic, and bioinformatic approaches to study how DEMETER DNA glycosylase is recruited to its target sites for demethylation. The position will function as an independent researcher actively advancing the goals of the project.
This position requires a Ph.D. in molecular genetics, developmental biology, or related fields with solid experimental skills, such as a strong background in protein interaction assays, genomic analyses (ChIP-seq, RNA-seq, BS-seq), or protein biochemistry assays. Additional required experience includes skills in areas such as plasmid cloning, confocal microscopy, image analysis, Arabidopsis transformation, basic plant care.
An ideal candidate for this position will have 3 years of postdoctoral experience and at least 5 years of relevant laboratory experience. This position is located in Kannapolis, NC.
