Postdoctoral Research on Signal Transduction in Plant Pathogenic Bacteria 

A NSF funded postdoctoral position is available to study the genetics and 
biochemistry of signal transduction in Pseudomonas syringae that are 
pathogenic on bean or Arabidopsis thaliana.  We have recently isolated and 
characterized a genetic regulator that is ubiquitous within Pseudomonas 
syringae (see Hrabak & Willis (1992) J. Bacteriol. 174, 3011-3020; Barta et 
al. (1992) J. Bacteriol. 174, 3021-3029; and Rich et al. (1992) Appl. Env. 
Microbiol. 58, 1440-1446; Barta et al. (1993) Appl. Environ. Microbiol. 59, 
458-466.).  The postdoctoral position (beginning September 1, 1993) will 
entail the molecular characterization of additional mutations in P. syringae 
that block lesion formation on bean and Arabidopsis.  An emphasis of this 
research will be to identify additional members of the lemA  regulon.  We 
are seeking an individual who has interests in prokaryotic molecular 
genetics/biochemistry with an emphasis on DNA sequencing, and gene product 
characterization.  Send curriculum vitae and names of three references to:
