5. Job Description: A postdoctoral scientist position in genomics of microbial endophytes
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Junhyun Jeon, Assistant Professor at the Department of Biotechnology, Yeungnam University. The research goal of Jeon lab is to explore questions with potentially great impact on both science and our society. We are currently working on elucidating epigenetic basis of pathogenesis in fungal pathogens of plants using the rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae as a model system (funded by the Korean National Research Foundation). A postdoctoral candidates are expected to work on genomics of microbial endophytes associated with pine trees (funded by Korea Forest Service). This project will be done in close collaboration with other groups working on isolation of endophytes showing strong anti-nematode/nematicidal effects, and will focus on analysis and engineering of genomes of the endophytes in an attempt to increase the production of potential anti-nematode/nematocidal compounds.
