Assistant/Associate/Full Professor, Data-driven Arid Crop Systems
The University of Arizona is hiring faculty in Plant Sciences/Data Science! Do you have a vision to change the world by developing crops for the future using the USA's hottest agriculture research facility and leveraging world-class data science resources? The School of Plant Sciences at the University of Arizona seeks to hire a tenure-track faculty member at any rank (Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor) who will leverage emerging digital tools to address fundamental research questions in agriculture.
Bioinformatics Postdoc – Boyce Thompson Institute, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY
Advanced genome sequencing and machine learning have yielded genome sequence structural variation (SV) data with great potential for understanding biological phenomena and crop improvement. These massive reservoirs of genome information are often exploited to a fraction of their potential due to a lack of enabling "omics" data and comprehensive analyses.
This postdoc position will join an interdisciplinary team focused on identifying the genes and molecular pathways that contribute to fruit development, ripening, and associated nutritional pathways. Specifically, this position will work with existing tomato genome sequences (and possibly participate in expanding this resource) to identify SVs associated with fruit expression variation using transcriptome and phenotype data developed in our lab or with collaborators. Opportunities will exist to deploy molecular and genetic approaches in addition to bioinformatics tools to understand how variant DNA regulatory sequences influence the range of expression patterns and downstream phenotypes of maturing fruit. The incumbent is expected to interact frequently with other geneticists, biochemists, molecular and protein biologists, and additional team members and collaborators to assist in defining specific project goals, evaluating experimental strategies, assessing results and proposing hypotheses.
This is a two-year position with a second year dependent on satisfactory first year performance. Salary is $64,000/year and includes health insurance. This position is funded by the USDA-ARS and as such is limited to US citizens. For more information please contact Jim Giovannoni at email@example.com.
HydroGEN Software Engineer and Developer
Join a team of software engineers, hydrologists, and machine learning experts to build a next generation hydrologic forecasting platform! HydroGEN, a University of Arizona-based project that collaborates with CyVerse, is a web-based model to generate custom scenarios on demand. Without any prior modeling experience, users will be able to directly manipulate state-of-the-art tools to explore the risks of future events.
