RESEARCH ASSOCIATES (M.S. or Ph.D.)
Two research positions for study pathogenicity/virulence of Alternaria alternata and molecular dissection of citrus reactions induced by citrus greening (Huanglongbing) bacterium Candidatus Liberibacter are available in the citrus pathology and fungal genetics laboratory, Citrus Research and Education Center (CREC) at the University of Florida. The incumbent will be expected to employ biochemical, molecular, and genetic approaches to identify the genes involved in fungal pathogenesis and to determine if symptoms and tree death induced by HLB are caused by hypersensitive reaction (HR) of citrus. He/She will be expected to participate in cooperative research with multidisciplinary scientists in the center. A M.S. or Ph.D. in plant pathology, plant physiology, or related biological science with experience in molecular biology genetics, and demonstrated accomplishments in research is highly desired. Funding is available for one year with possibility of renewal for additional year, depending on the availability of funding and satisfaction of work performance. The application is open until a suitable candidate is appointed. Interested applicant should send a curriculum vitae, copies of graduate transcripts, publication list, and names of three references to Dr. Kuang-Ren Chung, Associate Professor in Plant Pathology, CREC, IFAS, University of Florida, 700 Experiment Station Road, Lake Alfred, FL 33850-2299 USA; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org; Tel: (863) 956-1151 ext. 1369; Fax: (863) 956-4631.
