A postdoctoral fellow position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Zhi-Yong Wang at the Carnegie Institution for Science, Department of Plant Biology, to study plant growth regulation mechanisms. The Wang lab uses a wide range of approaches, including genetics, proteomics and genomics, to elucidate the signaling networks through which plants respond to hormonal, environmental, and nutritional signals. The lab focuses on the model organism Arabidopsis, but is also interested in other model systems such as Chlamydomonas, maize, and sorghum. The specific research projects for the new postdoctoral fellow will be determined based on the interest and expertise of the candidate as well as the ongoing research of the lab.

The Carnegie Institution, a private, nonprofit organization engaged in basic research and advanced education in biology, astronomy, and the earth sciences, was founded and endowed by Andrew Carnegie in 1902. Andrew Carnegie conceived the Institution’s purpose “to encourage, in the broadest and most liberal manner, investigation, research, and discovery, and the application of knowledge to the improvement of mankind.” The Department of Plant Biology engages in basic research on the mechanisms involved in the growth and development of photosynthetic organisms. The Department of Plant Biology is co-located with the Carnegie Department of Global Ecology on a seven-acre site on the campus of Stanford University.
