Please bring the following announcement to the attention of all
qualified individuals in your laboratory or institution. Thanks.
A postdoctoral position is available September 1, 1994 for an
individual interested in the genetic and biochemical
characterization of cell wall mutants of Arabidopsis (Science
261, 1032-1035 (1993)). Applicants should have a solid
background in modern techniques of molecular genetics and in
methods of analytical biochemistry (primarily HPLC and TLC).
Experience with plant systems and the analysis of carbohydrates
is highly desirable.
Applications should include a curriculum vitae and a statement of
research experience and research interests. Furthermore,
applicants should ask three individuals familiar with their work
to send me letters of reference on their behalf.
The successful candidate will work in a spacious and newly
renovated laboratory in the Life Science Complex of the
University of Connecticut at Storrs. The Life Science Complex
includes a Biotechnology Center with automated facilities for the
synthesis and sequencing of proteins and nucleic acids.
Greenhouse space and plant growth chambers are available. The
University of Connecticut at Storrs is located about halfway
between Boston and New York City ca. 90 minutes from the Atlantic
Although this position is funded by NSF for three years, the
ability of candidates to provide their own support will be an
important factor during the selection process. The precise
starting date for this position is negotiable.
Inquiries and applications should be directed to:
