Postdoc on Evolutionary Genomics of Abiotic Stress Resistance

We anticipate the availability of two postdoctoral positions as part of a collaborative project between the labs of John Burke and Lisa Donovan at the University of Georgia. These positions will involve the genomic and physiological analysis of abiotic stress responses in cultivated sunflower and related wild sunflower species. The ideal candidates will have a strong background in one or more of the following areas: population and/or quantitative genetics, genomics, bioinformatics, plant ecophysiology, and/or stress physiology. Funds are expected to support these positions over multiple years with a preferred start date of April 2020.

To apply, please send your CV, a brief statement of research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to: and Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the positions are filled. Informal inquiries are also encouraged.
