Postdoc on Evolutionary Genomics of Abiotic Stress Resistance

A postdoctoral position studying the evolutionary genomics of abiotic stress resistance in sunflower is available in the Burke lab in the Dept of Plant Biology at the University of Georgia.

This position is part of a collaborative project that seeks to understand the genomic and physiological basis of adaptation to drought, salt, and low nutrient stress in a fascinating study system. Note that postdocs in the lab are also given the opportunity (and encouraged!) to develop independent lines of research.

The ideal candidate will have a strong background in evolutionary genetics with experience handling and analyzing large genomic and/or transcriptomic datasets. The position is available immediately, but the start date can be somewhat flexible for the right candidate.

To apply, please send your CV, a brief statement of research interests, and contact information for three references via e-mail to: — informal inquiries are also encouraged.

Applications will be reviewed on an ongoing basis, continuing until the position is filled.
