Postdoctoral Researcher: Seed Ecology & Restoration

  • Chicago Botanic Garden Chicago (map)

The Chicago Botanic Garden is seeking a postdoctoral research associate who will lead, for two years, a project on genetic and environmental controls on seed dormancy in native midwestern Viola species, and implications for seed production and restoration use. This project integrates greenhouse and lab work to understand how genotypic variation and phenotypic plasticity drive variation in conditions required to break dormancy in native violet species.

This project is a collaboration among Andrea Kramer and Kay Havens of the Chicago Botanic Garden, and Linda MacKechnie of Ball Horticultural Company. The postdoc will be based at the Chicago Botanic Garden, with potential use of lab and greenhouses at Ball Horticultural Company.

Please, note that Chicago Botanic Garden does not have a budget for Visas or legal fees for non-US applicants.
