Analytical & Genomics Technologies in Applied Technology Systems at DuPont Pioneer is a research and technology support team accountable for the development of cutting edge technologies/systems and the efficient application of these approaches to developing novel breeding or biotechnology products. The Research Scientist in DNA Recombination will lead a team to develop, improve and implement recombination technologies for novel product development.
Lead a team of scientists collaborating in a multi-disciplinary approach to develop and optimize DNA recombination and repair technologies. Develop a research program to apply the biology of DNA recombination and repair to improve plant breeding methodologies and for the production of biotechnology-derived products. Work closely with a broadly inter-disciplinary research team and leadership to develop and maintain a strategic DNA recombination research scientific plan. Provide management, scientific leadership, critical thinking and creativity when initiating, designing, and executing research within/across projects and research disciplines.
Communicate recommendations on project direction to collaborators and team members responsible for execution of experiments, data collection and decisions based on the interpreted experimental results. Communicate progress updates, experimental results and metrics within and outside the Recombination project group.
