Postdoc position studying plant photosynthesis and water use efficiency
Position available in the School of Biological Science at Washington State University with Professor Asaph Cousins. The research objective is to use measurements of leaf CO2 and H2O isotope exchange as well as isotope analysis of bulk leaf water and carbon to determine how leaf traits influence photosynthetic water use efficiency in C4 grasses. Research will focus on 1) how leaf anatomy and cell wall properties influence internal CO2 and H2O conductance, and 2) how carbonic anhydrase activity and kinetic properties of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase (PEPC) can enhance the efficiency of C4 photosynthesis under drought. This position is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy through a large collab
