PhD and PostDoc positions in Molecular Crop Pathology at the University of Maryland
PhD student and Postdoctoral Scientist positions are available in the Rawat lab in the Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture at the University of Maryland, College Park. The positions are focused on developing molecular understanding of plant resistance and susceptibility to the fungal pathogens of wheat, including FHB, rust, and powdery mildew. The candidates must have background in molecular plant pathology and should be adept in plant molecular biology techniques such as molecular cloning, confocal microscopy, transient and stable transformation, CRISPR-based gene editing, protein isolation, western labelling, and disease assays on wheat, Arabidopsis and Nicotiana. The incumbent will functionally characterize resistance proteins in wheat and model plant-pathog
