/Local adaptation in microbial symbionts and prairie plants/

We seek a postdoctoral research scientist to investigate local
adaptation in microbial symbionts of the prairie plants and their role
in facilitating plant responses to climate change. The postdoctoral
researcher will join a team investigating the geographic scale of local
adaptation and the evolutionary response of prairie plant species to
climate change (Professor Ruth Shaw, UMN; postdoctoral research
scientist Dr. Shelby Flint, UMN) and the role of microbial symbionts of
in local adaptation of these prairie plants (Professor Georgiana May,
UMN). The existing infrastructure of experimental reciprocal transplant
plots, and collections of microbial strains and seeds, provide an
excellent opportunity for addressing questions of fungal and/or
bacterial symbionts of prairie plants and their roles in local
adaptation. In addition, opportunities exist for developing conservation
and public-private collaborations in restoration activities. The
successful applicant will have knowledge of organismal biology for the
microbial system of their interest, of genetic and genomic approaches
relevant to their questions, evolutionary or ecological statistical
analytical expertise, and a strong publication record. Up to three years
of postdoctoral research funding are available through a grant from the
State of MN. Applicants should write Dr. Georgiana May ([email protected]
) expressing their interests and background in the
research area, and attach a current CV. To apply to the UM job posting,
