POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN FLAVONOL SIGNALS IN POLLEN GERMINATION
WASHINGTON STATE UNIVERSITY
Available immediately. We have established that flavonols are required for
pollen germination in maize and petunia. See Plant Cell Vol. 6, Jan 1994,
"Pollination- or Wound-Induced Kaempferol Accumulation in Petunia Stigmas
Enhances Seed Production" by Vogt, Pollak, Tarlyn, and Taylor.
See also Mo, Nagel and Taylor  Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 89, 7213-7217.
Current research is focused on the isolation of germination-specific genes
induced by flavonols and the determination of how flavonols function during
The successful candidate must show evidence of skills in molecular biology
and/or cell biology. Priority will be given to applicants with a demonstrated
background in plant physiology or flavonoid biochemistry. Salary depends
on experience and evidence of publications.
Candidates should send a cover letter outlining research experience,
curriculum vitae, and the namers and phone numbers of three references to
