Institution: North Carolina State University
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina, United States
Duties: The VanWallendael Lab at North Carolina State University seeks a postdoctoral researcher to study the genomic changes underlying rapid evolution in agricultural weeds. Our new lab has the twin goals of better understanding evolution by studying weeds and improving weed control using evolutionary knowledge. The postdoc will have the opportunity to focus on the evolution of weedy traits in crop-related weeds, as well as monitoring genomic changes in wild weed and invasive species populations. Candidates should have interests related to these topics, but will have flexibility to investigate lines of inquiry specific to their research goals
Requirements: The successful candidate will have a PhD in: evolutionary biology, genetics/genomics, weed science, or bioinformatics; Specific skills in plant genomics, quantitative genetics, and molecular biology in non-model plant systems are preferred
