We are hiring a postdoctoral fellow with experience in quantitative genetics, genomics, plant breeding, bioinformatics, statistical genetics, and/or molecular genetics. Researchers in human, animal, and other model organisms and evolution are especially encouraged to apply.

The Gage Lab is a new research group in the department of Crop and Soil Sciences at North Carolina State University, located in the brand new Plant Sciences Building, which houses diverse plant-related research groups in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment. We are studying how differential regulation of gene expression between alleles contributes to adaptation and genotype-by-environment interactions. This involves modeling the effects of regulatory sequences on transcription and translation, then applying those models to understand and predict how crops respond to real-world environmental variation. Much of our work is currently in maize, but we aim to build models that can be applied to the numerous other crops studied and bred at NCSU. We are looking for a independent and motivated postdoc who can help establish a lab ethos of curiosity, collaboration, hard work, and inclusivity. The fellow will have the opportunity to contribute to the scientific trajectory of our new group and to learn the fundamentals of starting a new lab.

Interested candidates should submit a CV and one-page cover letter describing how they fit the position and their scientific interests and philosophy. Materials can be sent to Joseph Gage at jlgage@ncsu.edu

Start Date: July 2022, negotiable. Funding available for two years, renewable contingent on mutual agreement.

Salary Description: Postdocs in our group are compensated according to the NIH NRSA Fellowship and Training Stipend Levels.
