Ivan Baxter, Ph.D.

Ivan’s research uses high-throughput elemental profiling to measure the elemental composition of plant tissues including soybean seeds and corn kernels. These data are used to perform genetics and modeling to understand how the interactions of elements, genes and the
environment determine the elemental composition of plants
and allow plants to adapt to different environments.

Postdoctoral Associate

Date Posted

The Baxter Lab at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center is recruiting an enthusiastic postdoctoral associate to take a key role in an NSF funded project to combine ionomics (high-throughput elemental profiling) and genetics to identify genes and gene x environment interactions in Maize. The successful candidate will combine QTL/association/nested association mapping data with the wide variety of co-expression, comparative genomic, and other systems biology data sets that are available to create biological hypotheses and knowledge.

A Ph. D in a field related to plant bioinformatics (i.e. plant biology, genetics, bioinformatics, genomics, computer science, statistics) is required. While scripting ability is not required, candidates should be able to demonstrate familiarity with computational/bioinformatics approaches.

The interdisciplinary research environment at the Danforth Center offers an excellent opportunity for career development. Salaries are competitive and commensurate with experience, and the Danforth Center offers an excellent benefits package including medical and 403B matching.
