The Center for Plant Science Innovation (PSI, https://www.unl.edu/psi) at the University of Nebraska Lincoln (UNL) is seeking applications for postdoctoral fellowships that aim to develop and transition high caliber early career scientists to independent research careers. Heuermann Postdoctoral Fellows are expected to develop research projects of their design, under the mentorship of two or more UNL faculty members, including at least one PSI faculty member. Opportunities for career development, including course instruction, will be tailored to meet the career goals of Heuermann Postdoctoral Fellows. Two fellowships are available. One fellowship is open to candidates who wish to pursue projects in any aspect of fundamental and/or translational plant biology. A second fellowship is available for candidates who integrate high-throughput plant phenotyping (HTTP) into their projects using state-of-the-art greenhouse- and/or field-based systems at UNL. Successful candidates are expected to develop innovative, interdisciplinary projects that address agricultural grand challenges, ideally at the interface of fundamental and translational plant biology. Fellows will have access to faculty expertise across plant science, computational biology, and engineering and state-of-the-art facilities and equipment; such as the Nebraska Center for Biotechnology ( https://biotech.unl.edu/center-biotechnology) and Holland Computing Center (https://hcc.unl.edu/). The starting annual salary is $60,000. Benefits and research funding will be provided to successful candidates. Projects will be supported for two years with a potential extension for a third year based on progress and availability of funding.
