Responses to light are among the most important adaptations for photosynthetic organisms. The Montgomery Lab is interested in the mechanisms photosynthetic organisms possess to finely tune their growth and developmental responses to changes in their ambient environment. Successful applicants will work as a part of a team on projects aimed at either (1) developing new mechanistic insights into cell- and tissue-specific light responses in Arabidopsis or (2) investigating regulation of adaptations to light color and intensity in cyanobacteria. The postdoctoral scientists will use genetic, biochemical, and cell biological approaches to study light signaling pathways in plants or cyanobacteria. These positions are part of an integrated postdoctoral training approach in the Montgomery Lab (prl.natsci.msu.edu/people/faculty/beronda-montgomery/). Positions included cutting edge research training partnered with an individual career development plan and targeted activities to provide comprehensive preparation of the researchers for future career positions.
Required Application Materials
Qualified and interested applicants should submit a CV, a cover letter detailing the applicant’s research interests and career development goals, a sample of a recently published paper, and contact information for three references to Beronda Montgomery (email@example.com).
