POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
MECHANISMS OF CHLOROPLAST DIVISION
Department of Biology, University of Nevada, Reno

A postdoctoral position is available after April 1, 1996 to investigate 
the molecular mechanisms governing plastid division in higher plants.  
Studies will center on the function and regulation of a recently 
discovered gene from Arabidopsis called cpFtsZ (Nature 376:473-474,1995).  
This nuclear gene encodes a chloroplast-localized homolog of the 
bacterial cell division protein FtsZ, and is the first gene isolated from 
any eukaryote with a probable function in organelle replication.  A Ph.D. 
and experience in molecular techniques are essential.  Experience in 
microscopy or biochemical techniques helpful.  

Reno is located 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and offers outstanding 
recreational opportunities.  The campus is 2 1/2 hours from UC Davis and 
4 hours from the San Francisco Bay Area.

Send curriculum vitae, brief statement of research experience and goals, 
and three letters of reference to:  Dr. Katherine Osteryoung, Department 
of Biology/314, University of Nevada, Reno, NV 89557.  Phone 
(520) 621-3977 or (702) 784-6188, email osteryok at gas.uug.arizona.edu.  
Application review will begin January 5, 1996 and will continue until 
position is filled.  AA/EOE.
