Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Physiology, Signals and Responses
Dr. El-Kereamy’s Lab in UCR’s Department of Botany & Plant Sciences within the Lindcove Research and Extension Center (in Exeter, CA) is seeking a postdoctoral scholar in the area of citrus horticulture.
The focus of the position will be understanding the physiological mechanism of citrus responses to different cultural practices, pre-harvest fruit disorders, abiotic stress, and nutrition management. While the position is focused on citrus, the postdoctoral work might include other fruit trees. The position requires a self-driven individual with strong plant science laboratory experience and field background. The ideal candidate will have experience in experimental design, plant physiology, molecular biology, biochemistry, data collection, and analysis. Expertise in transcriptome and metabolome of plant hormones biosynthesis and signaling pathway is highly desired. The postdoctoral scholar will lead and participate in preparing the data and manuscripts for publication in peer review journals.
Eligible candidates should have a recent Ph.D. in plant physiology, plant biochemistry or related fields. Highly motivated individuals with excellent oral and written communication skills are encouraged to apply. The candidate should have the ability to work independently, as well as in a team, to perform multidisciplinary projects and have critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
Candidates will be offered a competitive salary commensurate with their experience.
