MOLECULAR MECHANISMS OF PLASTID DIVISION

A postdoctoral position beginning May 1996 is available to investigate the
molecular mechanisms of chloroplast division in higher plants.  Studies
will center on the role of a newly discovered gene from Arabidopsis called
cpFtsZ (Nature 376: 473-474) in the plastid division process.  cpFtsZ is a
nuclear-encoded, chloroplast-localized homologue of a key bacterial cell
division protein, and is the first gene isolated from any eukaryote with a
probable function in organelle replication.  Experience in molecular
techniques essential.  Experience in light or electron microscopy or
biochemical techniques helpful but not essential.  Salary $23,000 to
$26,000 commensurate with experience, plus benefits.  Reno is located just
east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains about 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and
offers outstanding recreational opportunities, spectacular scenery,  and a
near-perfect climate.  UC Davis is 2 1/2 hours and San Francisco 4 1/2
hours to the west.  Please send CV, brief statement of research experience,
and three letters of reference to Dr. Katherine Osteryoung, Department of
Biology/314, University of Nevada, Reno, NV 89557.  Phone (702) 784-6258,
Fax (702) 784-1650, email oster_k at med.unr.edu.  Position open until filled.
The University of Nevada is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity
