A molecular biologist (PDF) is sought to join the Plant Cell Biology Group at
the Australian National University in (beautiful) Canberra.
We have recently identified mutants of Arabidopsis that show
temperature-sensitive disruption of their cortical microtubules and subsequent
changes in the direction of cell expansion. We plan to use the mutants to
identify the genes responsible for organizing cortical microtubules. The
appointee will undertake the map-based cloning of the gene responsible for one
of these mutants. Applicants should have a PhD in a relevant discipline.
Experience with relevant molecular biology techniques is essential. A
background or interest in the cytoskeleton and/or plant development would be
highly desirable (but not essential). Good skills in oral and written
communication are important. Appointment is for two years initially.
Please contact Dr Geoffrey Wasteneys for more information about the project,
the research facilities and the research community: telephone: (06) 249-3952;
fax: (06) 249-4331; email: Geoff.Wasteneys at anu.edu.au
Further particulars, including selection criteria, must be obtained before
applying from the School Secretary, RSBS, telephone: (06) 249-4138; fax (06)

Salary: Postdoctoral Fellow (Level A) $38,587-$41,421 p.a.
Closing date: 5 July 1996 Ref: BS 3.6.1
Applications: should be written against the selection criteria and be
submitted in duplicate to the Secretary, The Australian National University,
Canberra ACT 0200, including curriculum vitae, list of publications, names,
addresses and fax numbers of at least three referees. The University has a
