Multiple postdoctoral research associate positions are available in the laboratory of CJ Tsai at the University of Georgia. Research topics include (1) winter transcriptome regulation of woody stems, (2) metabolic engineering of triterpenes in non-glandular trichomes, (3) vegetative-to-reproductive transition regulation. The incumbents will employ RNA-Seq, metabolite profiling, CRISPR editing, histology, and/or gene network modeling in research. The individuals will also gain experience in mentoring undergraduate and graduate students. For some of our recent work, see PMID: 32139476 and 35298644.
