The Crop Physiology Laboratory at Utah State University has a Post-doctoral Fellowship position available to study Ethylene Synthesis and Sensitivity in Plants. The successful applicant will work closely with NASA scientists to examine genetic and environmental approaches to improve plant growth in the closed-environment of the space station, where elevated ethylene levels have altered plant growth.
The candidate should have a solid background in Plant Physiology and Plant Biology. Experience with environmental instrumentation and electronic data acquisition is desirable. This project is part of a larger program addressing the challenges of using plants to recycle wastes and produce food, oxygen, and purified water for long term space missions. The starting salary is commensurate with experience and includes medical, dental, and retirement benefits.
Interested candidates should submit: C.V., cover letter summarizing qualifications, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, and the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of 3 references.
