Princeton University’s Department of Molecular Biology seeks applicants for a Research Specialist to join the laboratory of Martin Jonikas. Algae operate a CO2 concentrating mechanism, which allows them to assimilate carbon more efficiently than most land plants, including many of our crops. The Jonikas lab aims to understand the function of the algal CO2 concentrating mechanism with the ultimate goal of engineering it into crop plants to increase yields.
The successful candidate will computationally model the function of the algal CO2 concentrating mechanism, and will use this model to understand:
The employee will write up a manuscript describing the findings.
This position is a term appointment of one year with possibility of renewal contingent on performance and continued funding.
