Plant Biology/Biochemistry Postdoctoral Research Associate Positions
at Cornell University

Two postdoctoral positions are available in Jocelyn Rose’s lab ( in the Plant Biology Section, School of Integrative Plant Science at Cornell University, studying tomato fruit biology using genomic and/or biochemical approaches, with particular focus on cuticles, cell walls, and ripening related processes. We are looking for experienced plant biologists and/or biochemists who will use innovative technologies to study aspects of the structure and function of structural polymers in fruit, and/or the mechanisms of their biosynthesis and modification during fruit development and ripening. These positions will also involve the identification and characterization of novel cell and tissue type processes in tomato fruit ( through interaction with a larger collaborative team including other tomato research groups at the Boyce Thompson Institute and USDA-ARS on the Cornell campus.

The applicants must have a Ph.D. in Plant Biology, Plant Biochemistry, or a closely related field and should have at least 5 years of experience, gained through their Ph.D. and/or a postdoc, in a range of modern molecular techniques, as well as either: 1) experience generating and analyzing RNA-seq data, or similar bioinformatic experience, as well as working with transgenic tomato plants; or 2) experience with enzymology and analytical biochemical techniques, such as HPLC, GC and mass spectrometry. Experience working with plant cuticles is particularly encouraged, and expertise in polymer biochemistry would be a benefit. Evidence of research experience working with tomato is strongly preferred. Applicants should have excellent written and verbal communication skills and have a strong publication record. To apply, please click this site or copy and paste in your browser and apply online.
