Position Summary Postdoctoral researcher to model pennycress metabolism in response to drought. We have developed computational pipelines to predict and annotate metabolic enzymes and pathways from sequenced genomes, which enables the generation of genome-scale metabolic networks. The successful candidate will leverage these resources in the Rhee Lab to model the metabolic networks field pennycress (Thlaspi arvense). Field pennycress is an overwintering biofuel crop related to both canola and arabidopsis. The harvested oilseeds have many uses including cooking oil, animal feed, and particularly biojet fuel. As an overwintering cover crop pennycress has many ecosystem services such as increasing biodiversity, preventing erosion, and sequestering carbon, all while bein
