Research Fellow - Food Genetics

Organisation's Logo

Post Doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 (PD1) - Potato Genetics

Basic Function

The PD Fellow will be responsible for the development and application of genotyping tools on a foundation breeding population, and subsequent bioinformatics and statistical genomic analyses.

Specifically, the PD Fellow will perform whole genome shotgun sequencing on parental genotypes, utilise standard bioinformatics tool identify polymorphisms for the design of a targeted genotyping-by sequencing platform (using an approach such as DArtTag or a similar platform).

They will deploy the platform on the breeding population and carry out subsequent bioinformatics and statistical analyses related to marker assisted and genomic selection (MAS and GS).

They will also work in the framework of the Teagasc/IPM Potato Group breeding programme to integrate the CRRISP project with the routine MAS pipeline in that programme.

Whilst the task is based primarily at Oak Park Crops Research Centre in Carlow (Ireland), the PD Fellow will travel to Kenya to support the development of the breeding population and phenotyping resources, and to transfer the use of genomics technology to partners in KALRO.

The successful candidate must be willing to spend periods of between four and six weeks per annum in Kenya (subject to the appropriate travel advisories and restrictions in place at the time).

Essential Qualifications

- PhD in plant biology, genetics, molecular biology or a related discipline

- Relevant research experience not to exceed 3 years’ post-PhD.
