Are you ready to network and connect with your peers? Then you should be attending Carnegie Science Plant Biology 1st Career Expo, where you can start to build invaluable relationships on campus while increasing your overall visibility. This event has been organized by CIPA (Carnegie Institution Postdoc Association) in order to enrich the professional and personal experiences of Postdocs while preparing them for the future.

Stanford, CA— With a growing world population and a changing climate, understanding how agriculturally important plants respond to drought is crucial. New work from a team led by Carnegie’s José Dinneny discovers a strategy employed by grasses in drought conditions that could potentially be harnessed to improve crop productivity. It is published by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Plants obtain most of their water through their...

Stanford, CA— Plants have tiny pores on their leaves called stomata—Greek for mouths—through which they take in carbon dioxide from the air and from which water evaporates. New work from the lab of Dominique Bergmann, honorary adjunct staff member at Carnegie’s Department of Plant Biology and professor at Stanford University, reveals ways that the systems regulating the development of stomata in grasses could be harnessed to improve plant...

We are seeking an exceptional, early-career scientist (recent PhD/early postdoctoral) in the field of computational biology for the position of staff associate. The candidate should have the creativity, tenacity and discipline to explore original and innovative ideas. We are seeking a colleague who has, through unconventional research, a potential to create new fields and/or revolutionary technologies. We expect the new member to interact...

Yanniv Dorone, a graduate student in Director Sue Rhee’s lab, has been awarded a prestigious Stanford Graduate Fellowship. These two-year fellowships offer more than $150,000 in financial and career development support and are “awarded to only the very best students in the sciences and engineering.” Dorone’s research aims to identify and characterize unknown methods by which plants orchestrate gene activity through regulating the...
