Research Associate, W0007456

The selected candidate will conduct independent research to fine map and clone genes that underline disease resistance in wheat and develop functional markers for the genes to be used in breeding through the application of molecular and statistical genetics and genomics-based strategies. Specific tasks include genotyping and phenotyping of wheat disease resistance, linkage and association mapping of important traits, marker and candidate gene identification using GBS and SNP. Create an environment that fosters diversity, collegiality and ability to work in a multi-cultural setting.
