** Postdoctoral Research Associate, University of Maryland (UMBC) **
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A postdoctoral research position funded by the National Science Foundation
is available immediately to investigate the molecular and cellular biology of 
transcription factors active in plant embryogenesis. 

Our lab has recently cloned multiple cDNA and genomic sequences coding for 
putative transcription factors expressed in immature bean embryos. The main 
focus will be on studying synergistic interactions among transcription factors 
that control gene expression during seed maturation. Specific research projects 
will include mapping functional domains by trans-activation assays with a 
biolistic particle bombardment system and setting up a two-hybrid system in 
the yeast S. cereviciae to study protein:protein interactions. A Ph.D. in 
biochemistry, molecular biology, genetics or a closely related field is 
required. Experience with gene cloning, yeast genetics or protein purification 
is desirable.

Salary will depend on qualifications and will include a generous benefits 
package. The UMBC campus is located in residential Catonsville, a short 
distance from I-95 and the Baltimore-Washington corridor. Facilities include
modern equipment for gene cloning and protein purification, a recently 
purchased Particle Delivery System (BioRad PDS 1000) and a modern greenhouse
currently being renovated under an NSF Science & Technology Infrastructure 
grant.

Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, statement of research experience 
and interests, academic transcripts and names, addresses and phone number 
of three references to:
