in the "Arabidopsis Molecular Genetics" group (Group leader 
Jerome Giraudat), Institut des Sciences Vegetales (Director Adam 
Kondorosi), CNRS, Gif sur Yvette, France.

Our Institute, which is located in a multidisciplinary research 
campus of the Paris area, is composed of 5 research groups 
working on various aspects of plant molecular and cellular 

Our group is primarily studying the molecular mechanisms of 
action of the phytohormone abscisic acid: cloning and 
characterization of the abi (abscisic acid-insensitive) loci of 
Arabidopsis, and analysis of a drought adaptive response at the 
root level in Arabidopsis. In the last 6 months, we have also 
developped the characterization of Expressed Sequence Tags (EST) 
of the Arabidopsis genome: partial sequencing, and ultimately 
mapping, of cDNAs. This project is part of an ongoing integrated 
French effort which comprises of 8 different labs, and will soon 
(EEC decision pending) be part of the multinational Arabidopsis 
genome project of the EEC BIOTECH program. 

We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist which would take the 
leadership of the team working on the EST project within our 
group. Besides this responsibility, the candidate would have the 
time and the facilities to take part in one of the other ongoing 
projects, or to develop an additional project (to be discussed 
according to his personal interests), within the group.

As for the EST project, the candidate will benefit from at least 
a senior technician, one (or more) student, an automatic 
sequenator, and all necessary computer facilities.
