We are looking to fill an opening for a creative and enthusiastic postdoctoral scholar to work on uncovering the molecular mechanisms by which the circadian clock regulates growth and development in plants. We combine affinity purification, mass spectrometry, genetics, proteomics, high-throughput phenotyping, and genomic methods in plants to gain deep understanding of the components that connect the circadian oscillator to plant physiology. Ideal candidates would have recently obtained a Ph.D. in either genetics, biochemistry, cell, developmental, molecular biology or plant physiology. Candidates with an interest in transitioning into plants from other systems are encouraged to apply. The Nusinow laboratory actively engages the public though outreach and education, and lab members are expected to participate in mentoring and teaching programs as part of their duties. The term is one year and renewable for an additional year upon satisfactory performance and availability of funds.
Candidates should provide a current CV, list of at least three contacts for recommendation, and a two-page cover letter that includes a statement of past research experience, an outline of proposed research, and career goals to: careers from danforthcenter.org
The international and interdisciplinary research environment at the Danforth Center offers an excellent opportunity for career development. Salaries are competitive and commensurate with experience, and the Danforth Center offers an excellent benefits package including medical and 403B matching. The Danforth Center is currently ranked in the top ten places to work in scientific research, and the St. Louis region is a rich environment in which to work and live.
