A post-doctoral position will be available starting January 1994.  The
project entails the study of the mechanisms of cell elongation during early
seedling development in Arabidopsis thaliana.
The laboratory of Cell Biology at the INRA research
institute in Versailles has developed a comprehensive Arabidopsis research
program over the past two years. A major effort has been invested in
developing new molecular tools for the analysis of the Arabidopsis genome.
In particular a large collection of T-DNA insertion lines has been
generated using a new in planta transformation procedure. Also a project
to systematically sequence and map cDNAs from etiolated seedlings is
ongoing and a physical map is being constructed from a collection of
ordered YAC clones using a new large insert library.  

To study cell elongation we are saturating the genome with EMS- induced
mutations affecting the elongation of the hypocotyl. The successful
candidate will work as part of a team on the identification and
characterization of similar mutants induced by T-DNA insertion mutagenesis.
Candidates should be trained in molecular biology and genetics.
