A postdoctoral research associate position is available to conduct
research on the molecular genetic basis of ovule development in Arabidopsis.
Research will focus on the analysis of ovule-specific gene expression during
megasporogenesis and megagametogenesis. Specific goals include 1) the
isolation and characterization of ovule-specific genes and analysis of
their expression in wild-type and female-sterile mutants 2) genetic
ablation of reproductive tissues within the ovule, and 3) functional
analysis of ovule-specific genes in transgenic plants. Preference will be
given to applicants with a Ph.D. in plant molecular biology or plant
biology. Research experience must include gene cloning by library
screening, analysis of RNA, construction of gene fusions, skills in
transformation and analysis of transgenic plants. Analysis of gene
expression will require skills including in situ hybridization.
Experience in histological procedures and microscopy (light, fluorescence
and CSLM) are highly desirable. Postition is available Sept., 1995 until
Aug., 1997 with a possible renewal.
Interested individuals should send a letter of application, c.v., and the
names and phone numbers of three recommenders to: Sharman D. O'Neill,
Assistant Professor, Section of Plant Biology, University of California,
Davis, CA 95616. Telephone: (916) 752-2435, Fax: (916) 752-5410. No email
