Open Positions

If you are interested in how organisms generate self sustained rhythms and why they are so important for growth and development there are a variety of research opportunities in the Farre lab.

Graduate students: Positions for graduate training of Ph.D. students are currently available in the laboratory. Our research offers an unusually multidisciplinary approach, with comprehensive training in molecular biology, biochemistry, molecular genetics, and plant physiology. Graduate students in my lab apply through the Plant Biology Graduate Program or the Genetics Graduate Program. Students interested in pursuing graduate work in the Farre lab should send a brief e-mail describing their research interests.

Post-docs: Add posted on ASPB

A POSTDOCTORAL POSITION is available in the laboratory of E. M. Farré at Michigan State University to work on the plant circadian clock and its role in growth and development.

The Farre lab (http://farrelab.openwetware.org/) is focused on the study of circadian rhythms in plants. Two different projects are available. One project will focus on elucidating the molecular role of pseudo-response regulators in the Arabidopsis circadian clock. For the second project the successful candidate will work in establishing metabolic processes regulated by the clock as well as characterizing the molecular mechanisms by which this is achieved. Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biochemistry, plant biology or cell biology. Experience with bioinformatics tools for the analysis of large data sets and/or regulatory networks would be of advantage if the candidate is interested in working on the second project. The starting date is negotiable, though the earliest possible is preferred. The position will remain open until filled. Initial appointment is for 1 year, with funding for renewal up to 3 years. Michigan State University offers state-of-the-art genomics and metabolomics research facilities, with more than 150 plant biology faculty engaged in various aspects of plant genetics, biochemistry and physiology (http://www.plantbiology.msu.edu/; http://genomics.msu.edu/).

Application Instructions: Interested applicants should send a brief statement of research accomplishments & research interests, a current CV, a copy of at least 1 recent paper and the names and contact information of three references. Please send information by email to farre@msu.edu.
