Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is available to study the mechanism of
chromatin-nuclear matrix interactions and their influence on gene
expression in plants. We have cloned and characterized the first
MAR-binding protein from plants (see Meier et al. (1996), Plant Cell 8,
2105-2115) and are now broadening our scope on MAR-binding proteins and
the function of chromatin-nuclear matrix attachment in Arabidopsis.
Applicants should have substantial experience in molecular biology
and/or molecular genetics. Experience with Arabidopsis genetics is
advantageous, but not required. The position is within Dupont's Central
Research and Development group, which conducts fundamental research in
plant biology and other areas of science. Interaction with the worldwide
scientific community (e.g. by meeting attendance, publications,
collaborations) and other groups within Dupont is strongly encouraged.
The lab is located at the Dupont Experimental Station in Wilmington, DE.
The Experimental Station houses about 4000 scientists working in a
variety of science areas. Wilmington's mid-Atlantic location, about 20
miles southwest of Philadelphia, is convenient to New York, Washington
and other east coast locations. To apply, send a CV, a brief statement
of research experience and research interests, and the names of at least
three references (including address, phone, and email) to Iris Meier by
mail or email.
