The incumbent is expected to perform independently in conducting plant transformations with crop plants to introduce transgenes designed to impact overall plant health and quality of harvested product. The research will include assembling genetic constructs, genetic transformation of plants, and molecular characterization of the derived transformants. In addition to assistance in maintenance, transgenic plants grown under greenhouse and/or field conditions will be required.
Research will be conducted in the George W. Beadle Center on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
The incumbent will consult regularly with the Plant Transformation Core Research Facility team members regarding experimental procedures and results. Research progress will be reported on a quarterly basis and written reports for publication or verbal reports for presentation at appropriate meetings will be prepared with input from the research team. The incumbent is expected to complete all training classes relative to laboratory safety that are required by the University or the laboratory supervisor and to adhere to all cleanliness and safety guidelines and procedures established by the laboratory.
