加州理工学院2019年招聘博士后职位(工程植物线粒体基因组)

Postdoctoral position: Engineering the plant mitochondrial genome

Caltech

Location: Pasadena, CA

Job Number: 7054571

Posting Date: Nov 29, 2018

Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description

Our goal is to make the plant mitochondrial genome (mtDNA) into a platform for synthetic biology and crop enhancement by developing mtDNA transgenesis, a technology that has the potential to transform biotechnology and agriculture in a number of ways. Mitochondrial genome engineering has thus far has only been possible in single-celled organisms such as yeast and algae. Novel approaches to carrying out selections for cells that carry recombinant genomes, and within cells for those recombinant genomes, provide new opportunities for achieving targeted mtDNA transgenesis. Work on this project occurs in collaboration with the lab of Elliot Meyerowitz, also at Caltech (http://plantlab.caltech.edu).
