Type: Full Time
Required Education: Doctorate
Area of Focus:
The Farcuh Lab housed within the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture at the University of Maryland, College Park has an immediate opening for a highly motivated candidate to fill a postdoctoral associate position with focus on understanding how novel preharvest and postharvest practices impact apple fruit quality (color, texture and flavor) and nutritional value improvement, as well as development of physiological disorders. While the position is focused on apples, 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 integrating multidisciplinary approaches such as biology, molecular biology/transcriptomics, biochemistry, metabolomics/ analytical chemistry, and physiology. Expertise in transcriptome and metabolome of plant hormones biosynthesis and signaling pathways is highly desired.
