Multiple postdoctoral and research assistant positions are available in Zhi-Yong Wang and Shouling Xu labs at Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford, to study signaling mechanisms that control plant growth and development in Arabidopsis. Specific research projects include brassinosteroid (BR) regulation of vesicle trafficking and RNA splicing, cell integrity signaling under stress and rapid growth, nutrient-hormone crosstalk mediated by O-GlcNAc and O-fucose modifications of cellular proteins. The research projects provide broad training in proteomics/mass spectrometry and molecular genetics. Research experiences in protein biochemistry, mass spectrometry, computation biology, or molecular genetics are preferred. To apply, please send a cover letter describing research experiences and career goals, CV with list of publications and contact information for 3 professional references to Zhi-Yong Wang at email@example.com and Shouling Xu at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Additional Salary Information: We follow the postdoc salary standard of Stanford University
About Carnegie Institution for Science
The Department of Plant Biology of Carnegie Institution is located on the campus of Stanford University. Carnegie Institution for Science was founded and endowed by Andrew Carnegie in 1902 and incorporated by an act of Congress in 1904. Andrew Carnegie conceived the Institution’s purpose to be “to encourage, in the broadest and most liberal manner, investigation, research, and discovery, and the application of knowledge to the improvement of mankind.” The Department of Plant Biology engages in basic research on the mechanisms involved in the growth, development, and environmental acclimation of plants and algae. The Department has state-of-the-art facilities for microscopy/imaging and mass spectrometry as well as molecular genetic studies of plants.
