Expected start date The position is available from October 15 2024 or as soon as possible thereafter. Job description We are seeking an assistant professor to develop an innovative research program in legume genetics with a focus on developing statistical and quantitative modeling approaches to genomic and phenomic data and apply these models for understanding the genetic mechanisms underlying variation in agronomic traits, including but not limited to adaptation and productivity as well as to apply these models for predictive breeding to accelerate development of improved varieties. We are looking for a candidate able to conduct research independently and collaborate in teams. You will be trained in developing collaborative ties to partners across university and industrial boundaries, as well as you must be committed to teaching, and the development of new courses for graduate students in the areas of genetics and plant improvement. The successful candidate will conduct innovative, externally funded, and collaborative research on quantitative methods and statistical modeling applied to legume plant breeding.
