Fusarium Oxysporum Post Doc Position: Open Immediately

Published by Cori VanGalder on

A post-doc position in fungal genomics is available immediately to develop new phylogenomics-informed diagnostic tools for Fusarium oxysporum.  The primary objective of the project is to develop formae speciales-specific diagnostic assays for several Fusarium wilt pathogens important to California agriculture, based on a phylogenomic dataset that will inform evolutionary patterns in this key group.

The position is part of a collaboration among Tom Gordon at University of California, Davis, David Geiser at Penn State University and Frank Martin, ARS, Salinas, CA.  The hiring will be done by Tom Gordon but the position is located in the Martin lab in Salinas.  Travel funds are available to visit with collaborating labs.  Experience working with genomics/bioinformatics and molecular lab skills are desirable. 

Salinas is located in the central coastal area of California, 100 miles south of San Francisco and 30 miles from the Big Sur area.  Interested parties please contact Frank Martin, David Geiser, or Tom Gordon.  The position is open until filled.
