North Carolina State Hiring Plant Biology Post-doc

Dr. Iorizzo's lab at NCSU is looking for a highly motivated post-doc that will focus on understanding the molecular mechanism involved in the regulation and biosynthesis of secondary metabolite accumulation in plants including anthocyanin, carotenoids, and organic acids. The ultimate goal is to identify genes and candidate mutations controlling secondary metabolites accumulation that can be targeted for DNA-assisted breeding either through marker-assisted breeding or gene-editing techniques. The candidate must have a strong motivation and proficiency in publications. The position will work as part of a laboratory team, will interact closely with collaborating laboratories, and must be able to coordinate activities and reports within a diverse team of individuals. The position will be responsible for writing publications, preparing presentations, preparing technical reports, and contributing to grant proposal development to support research funding initiatives. The position will assist/participate in PHHI and University-sponsored programs. The position will also assist in the training and mentoring of undergraduate and graduate students. Crops of interest in this project will include blueberry and carrot. Apply here:
