Postdoctoral Positions
Dartmouth College 
Hanover, New Hampshire

Three postdoctoral positions are available to study several aspects of
Arabidopsis biology.  The positions are available immediately for up to three
years.  One position, with Rob McClung, is to study the molecular basis of
circadian rhythms (see Plant Physiol. 103:553, 1993 and Plant Mol. Biol.
23:349, 1993).  The focus of this project is a genetic analysis of
Arabidopsis mutants with defects in the functioning of the circadian clock.

A  second position, with Mary Lou Guerinot, is to study iron uptake and
regulation in Arabidopsis using biochemical, genetic and molecular genetic
techniques.  The focus at present is on ferric reduction which is the primary
factor in making iron available for absorption by plants.  We have identified
a gene which may encode ferric reductase as well as a number of mutants with
altered ferric reduction capabilities.  

A third position, with Tom Jack, is to study the molecular genetics of flower
development in Arabidopsis (Cell 68:683, 1992 and Cell, February 25, 1994
issue).  In particular we are studying APETALA3, a gene that specifies petal
and stamen development in the flower.

Experience in genetics or molecular genetics, or in plant physiology or
biochemistry is preferred.  Salary is commensurate with experience. 
Interested individuals should send a letter of application and curriculum

Graduate Research Assistanceships
Dartmouth College 
Hanover, New Hampshire

Graduate Research Assistanceships are available in the Cell and Molecular
Biology Group of the Department of Biological Sciences at Dartmouth College. 
The group consists of twelve faculty, of whom three study several aspects of
Arabidopsis biology.  Participating faculty include:  Rob McClung, molecular
genetic analysis of  Arabidopsis circadian rhythms;  Tom Jack, molecular
genetics of flower development in Arabidopsis;  Mary Lou Guerinot, iron
uptake and regulation in Arabidopsis.  Interested individuals should request
an application package from Dr. Mary Lou Guerinot, Chair, Graduate Committee,
Department of Biological Sciences, Dartmouth College, Hanover, NH 03755; 
telephone 603-646-2527, 
fax 603-646-1347;
