A full-time Research Associate position is available in the laboratory of Professor David M. Kehoe in the Department of Biology at Indiana University Bloomington.
The successful candidate will use molecular, biochemical, and bioinformatics tools to investigate the mechanisms that regulate transcriptional activation by ambient light colors in photoautotrophic bacteria using a marine phytoplankton model system developed and studied in the Kehoe laboratory (see Shukla et al, 2012, PNAS 109: 20136-20141; Sanfilippo et al, 2016, PNAS 113: 6077–6082; Grebert et al, 2018, PNAS 115: E2010-E2019; Kronfel et al, 2019, J Biol Chem 294: 3987-3999; Sanfilippo et al, 2019, PNAS 116: 6457-6462).
