Areas of interest include, but are not limited to quantitative genomics, genetics, biochemistry, synthetic biology, and systems biology. Candidates with prior experience in computational methods to process, statistically analyze, and interpret large-scale plant “omic” datasets to address biochemical questions are especially encouraged to apply.

Applicants must have a PhD and a strong record of accomplishments and publications. Successful applicants will contribute to undergraduate and/or graduate teaching and maintain an externally-funded research program.
