The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory is a world-class scientific research institution. We are developing a virtual plant-ecosystem model that will describe how genomic and environmental variables inform predictions of ecosystem traits and responses at different scales. The model will enable a predictive understanding of plant-microbiomes, atmosphere and soil interactions at the molecular level. This work is part of a major research initiative. The successful candidate will be internationally recognized and:
Lead multiscale plant modeling and bridge the plant genotype-phenotype gap through molecular, cellular and organismal scales.
Work closely with a team and collaborate with scientists at EMSL, the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory, a DOE Office of Science user facility at PNNL.
Attract and support external users in plant multiscale modeling with a focus on molecular phenotyping.
Build a strong research program at PNNL through external grants and collaborative projects.
For more than 50 years, researchers at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) have advanced the frontiers of science and engineering in the service of our nation and the world. We make fundamental scientific discoveries that illuminate the mysteries of our planet and the universe. We apply our scientific expertise to tackle some of the most challenging problems in energy, the environment, and national security
