Position Summary:

The Department of Bacteriology seeks a Research Specialist/Lab Manager for the Jean-Michel Ane Lab. Our faculty, staff, and students have created a vibrant place to learn, teach, and conduct research, a place rich in opportunity, ideas, creativity, and resources, and a place where people can flourish and discover their own potential. Because we engage people with widely differing backgrounds, talents, perspectives, and styles, we achieve excellence through diversity.

The Ane lab seeks to understand and manipulate the molecular mechanism controlling symbiotic associations between plants and microbes. We transfer information gained from model plants such as Medicago truncatula to crops such as soybean, rice and corn in order to take full advantage of the fantastic opportunities offered by these beneficial associations to our agriculture. Our goal is to use microbes better to maintain the sustainability of our agriculture by protecting the environment over the long term and reducing costs for food, feed and biofuel production.
