Job Description
 

Searching for two postdoctoral fellows for the Division of Plant Science and Technology at the University of Missouri (College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Sciences). The postdoctoral scientists will work on beneficial plant/microbe interactions (arbuscular mycorrhizal interactions, nitrogen-fixing Rhizobia) and will identify critical pathways that control the resource exchange between the host plant and its root symbionts. We are particularly interested in nutrient to carbon exchange dynamics in interactions that provide variable levels of benefit or in tripartite interactions to better understand how a host plant regulates the carbon costs of its root symbioses and how the carbon supply from the host triggers nutrient uptake and transport by different symbionts. We use different labeling techniques to track the resource allocation between partners, metagenome analyses to determine the composition of plant associated microbial communities, transcriptome analyses to identify candidate genes involved in resource exchange processes, or advanced molecular and microscopic techniques to functionally characterize genes of interest.


Qualifications
 

Minimum Qualifications:

Ph.D. in Biological or Plant Sciences or related discipline by time of appointment.

Candidates will be evaluated on:

Experience in plant/microbe interactions, labeling or relevant molecular techniques.  


Benefit Eligibility
 

This position is eligible for University benefits.  The University offers a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, dental and vision plans, retirement, and educational fee discounts.  For additional information on University benefits, please visit the Faculty & Staff Benefits website at http://www.umsystem.edu/totalrewards/benefits
