POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
University of Missouri-Columbia

A two-year postdoctoral position is available starting Sept. 15, 1996 
to study the molecular and biochemical mechanisms of signal 
transduction mediating the phototropic responses of Arabidopsis.  The 
primary focus of this position will be the continued physiological and 
genetic characterization of a series of allelic mutants at a locus 
that apparently encodes a component of the signaling pathway 
downstream of the photoperception event (Liscum E and Briggs WR, 1995, 
Plant Cell 7: 473-485; Liscum E and Brigs WR, 1996, Plant Physiol, in 
press), and the cloning of the gene encoded at this locus via 
amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technology (see 
http://carnegiedpb.stanford.edu/methods/aflp.html).

Applicants should have a strong background in genetics and extensive 
experience with molecular biological techniques.  An interest in 
light-regulated development is expected and experience with 
Arabidopsis would be advantageous.

Interested individuals should fax or email a CV, brief summary of 
research interests, and the names of three references to Dr. Mannie 
Liscum, FAX 573-882-0123, email: mliscum at biosci.mbp.missouri.edu.  The 
University of Missouri is an affirmative action/equal opportunity 
employer.
