Job Duties: The Pedersen Lab investigates environmental routes of prion transmission as it contributes to the spread of chronic wasting disease in deer, elk, and moose and scrapie in sheep and goats. In collaboration with the USGS National Wildlife Health Center, we are initiating a new project to investigate processes, conditions, and mechanisms that contribute to prion contamination, persistence, and fate in plant tissues. The specific objectives of the project are to: 1) characterize mechanisms of prion uptake into plants, 2) establish kinetics of prion uptake and turnover in plants, and 3) assess oral bioavailability of prions in plants. Under these objectives, the post-doctoral researcher or research associate will be responsible for designing and conducting research, analyzing data, and reporting results in peer-reviewed publications. This position will provide an opportunity to build a novel set of skills and expertise that combines elements of basic and applied research and will provide the post-doctoral researcher with opportunities to collaborate with academic and federal government research personnel.
