The incumbent will be responsible for cloning DNA, preparing fungal protoplasts for developing an optical genetic map and for constructing full length and normalized cDNA libraries to assist in genome annotation and assembly process. The research will include molecular biology techniques and some computational tasks with phylogenetic analysis programs. Qualified applicants will have a Ph.D. in microbiology, mycology, plant pathology, genetics, or related field, have excellent writing skills, be familiar with modern molecular techniques, and have a minimum of two years experience working with fungal biology and genetics. Experience with computational genome analysis is not required but is desirable.
