New postdoc positions open in Xiong's group

We are seeking postdocs (1-2 positions) to work on ‘Genetic control of Eco-physiological traits in rice’. The successful candidates will work with Prof. Shaobing Peng, Prof. Jianliang Huang, Prof. Dongliang Xiong, and colleagues in Huazhong Agricultural University to undertake a research project to reveal the genetic control of eco-physiological traits (e.g., Leaf mass per area, leaf thickness, hydraulics, mesophyll conductance to CO2 et al.,) using QTG-seq and ecophysiological approaches. The positions will require a combination of outdoor field work, laboratory analyses, data management and analysis, administrative management, and technical writing. Experience in measuring plant physiological parameters (preferably experience measuring gas exchange and hydraulics) and plant structural traits (e.g., traits based on microscope images). Ability to manage project logistics, lead project meetings, perform administrative tasks, troubleshoot equipment issues, and manage team members. More information: Join us. The ideal start date will be before September 1, 2019.

How to apply: Email a cover letter describing your background and interests in the position, a copy of CV, and contact information for 3 references to Dongliang Xiong (
