A post-doc is available, starting immediately, to determine the role of receptor-like proteins in promoting stomatal closure, especially in response to pathogen elicitors.
The project in involves physiological and functional assays of stomatal function, as well as protein work including co-IP/MS. Previous experience with plants is not required. Experience with performing co-IP/MS, confocal microscopy, OR plant physiology (e.g, Licor gas exchange measurements) are assets, but also not required. Applicants with a background in immunity (in any system) are especially encouraged to apply.
The appointment is funded for two years and renewed on an annual basis, with the possibility of extension. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Applicants should send a cover letter describing your interests and expertise, a CV and names for 3 references to email@example.com. Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
Individuals with a MS degree and lab experience may also be considered as a technician for this project; please contact Dr. Facette if the project interests you and you have applicable skills.
