Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position on a new project to
define and characterise novel genes in the jasmonate perception-response
pathway in Arabidopsis. The successful applicant will join an active group
working on related projects in Arabidopsis. These include projects on the
cloning and characterisation of COI1, a gene which controls response to
jasmonate, and on the molecular biology of the jasmonate response (Feys,
Benedetti, Penfold and Turner, 1994 Plant Cell 6:751-759; Benedetti, Xie and
Turner 1995 Plant Physiol. vol 109).
I am looking for an enthusiastic, highly motivated individual who is also a
