Tissue culture and transformation research associate
The Pearce lab at CSU is seeking a research associate to perform tissue culture and transformation protocols to support the crop breeding and genetics program. Our lab is implementing CRISPR/Cas genome editing in wheat and potato to confer novel traits and accelerate the development of improved varieties. The successful applicant will primarily work in a molecular biology lab to culture and propagate wheat and potato plants using sterile in vitro methods and to perform transformation using biolistic and Agrobacterium-mediated protocols. For full job details and information on how to apply by our full consideration of 07/07/2019, see: http://jobs.colostate.edu/postings/68248.
