The University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Department of Agronomy and Horticulture, Center for Plant Science Innovation invites applications for a Post-Doctoral Research Associate position in plant single-cell computational biology in the Libault Lab. This 12-month (calendar year), full-time special appointment will focus on expertise in bioinformatics, computational biology, machine learning, and plant genomics. The apportionment is 100% research.
The Libault lab seeks to explore and understand the network of plant genes, and their regulation in response to environmental stress at the single-cell level. These discoveries will lead to the development of new strategies to improve crop characteristics and performance. Therefore, using single-cell-omics datasets, the postdoctoral associate will work on genomics, epigenetics, and/or bioinformatics/computational biology to characterize and functionally validate plant cell-type-specific transcriptional programs, their regulation in response to environmental stresses, and their differential regulation between plant species.
A Ph.D. in plant computational biology/genomics, bioinformatics, machine learning, or a related field is required at the time of hiring. Prior knowledge and demonstrated expertise in next-generation sequencing data analysis, computational systems biology, and/or data integration, excellent oral and written communication skills, and the ability to work in a team are also required.
Preference will be given to candidates with a solid knowledge of plant genomics, evolution, gene
expression/regulation, and biological networks.
