The Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at North Carolina State University invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Scholar position in the lab of Dr. Terri Long. The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will collaborate with mathematical modelers to conduct hypothesis-driven molecular, genetic, and biochemical experimentation that will delineate the molecular rules underlying systemic Fe homeostasis in Arabidopsis. The candidate will be expected to contribute to a variety of studies to characterize protein function and dynamics in Arabidopsis that will require the use of in vitro protein analysis (ie. Immunoprecipitation, immunoblotting), as well as confocal, enzymatic, and physiological analysis. The candidate will be expected to design and conduct quality, substantive, and methodological research, and share and report research findings by publishing papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals and participating in research conferences, seminar series, and other appropriate professional activities. The postdoc will meet frequently with Dr. Long to discuss best practices in grant writing, manuscript preparation, and mentoring. The postdoc will also be expected to assist with training undergraduates and graduate students that will join the lab.
