New Openings: 

The Brodersen Lab at the Yale School of the Environment Studies is inviting applicants for a postdoctoral scholar or research scientist position in plant physiological ecology focused on root physiology and anatomy. The successful applicant will join collaborative research team studying the functional implications of root system architecture in model agricultural species with the aim of improving water and nutrient uptake, as well as carbon sequestration. Qualified applicants will have had substantial experience with root physiological measurements, analysis of root system architecture, or plant hydraulics. Experience with imaging platforms such as confocal or light sheet microscopy, neutron radiography, or X-ray microCT imaging are highly desirable. Demonstrated programming proficiency in R, MatLab, or Python are required. Applications (statement of research interests, C.V., and contact information for two references) will be reviewed as they are received. Funding is immediately available for an initial one-year contract, with possible extensions up to 2 years. Please contact Craig Brodersen ( for more information.
