Postdoctoral Associates: Currently, there is one postdoctoral associate position open at this time in the Gore lab. The position involves developing an evolutionary model to better understand the levels and patterns of diversity between maize and sorghum, along with the application of these findings to enhance genome-wide association studies and whole-genome prediction of complex traits in sorghum. The full position description can be found here: Postdoctoral Associate for Comparative Quantitative Genetics and Genomics in Sorghum and Maize
If you are interested in applying for this position, please e-mail a letter of interest, C.V., and contact information for three references as a single PDF file to Michael Gore at email@example.com
In addition, you can submit a proposal to one of the following extramural fellowship programs: NSF Postdoctoral Research Fellowships in Biology, Life Sciences Research Foundation, USDA-NIFA, and Human Frontier Science Program. The proposal submission deadlines are different for each program, and it is suggested to frequently visit program websites for updates on procedures and deadlines.
If you are interested in applying for a fellowship, please send your CV, cover letter, and research ideas well in advance of the proposal submission deadline to Michael Gore at firstname.lastname@example.org
Graduate Students: Prospective graduate students should apply online at the Cornell Graduate School for admission into the Field of Plant Breeding. Students are expected to obtain support from intramural or extramural fellowships throughout their tenure. The American Society of Plant Biologists has made available a comprehensive listing of federal programs and fellowships that provide support for plant science graduate students. As a member of our group, graduate students will gain knowledge in plant breeding, quantitative genetics, and nutritional genomics.
