> >Postdoctoral research position
> >Available immediately (September 11, 1997)
> >A postdoctoral position is available to continue studies of the molecular
> >mechanisms of phosphate acquisition by plant roots and the role of phosphate
> >as a regulator of the arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis.
> >Research in this group focuses on the arbuscular mycorrhizal symbiosis and
> >closely linked with this, the mechanisms by which plants acquire phosphate
> >from the soil. The overall aims are to understand the molecular and cellular
> >processes involved in the development and regulation of the symbiosis and
> >also the molecular response to phosphate deprivation and mechanisms of
> >phosphate uptake by plant roots.
> >Two phosphate transporters have been cloned from Medicago truncatula roots
> >(MPMI, in press.) and antibodies and transgenic plants have been produced.
> >This project will continue with the localization of the transporters, and
> >analysis of mechanisms regulating their expression. Current data suggests
> >that additional transporters may function during the mycorrhizal symbiosis
> >and this project could also include their identification and cloning. The
> >project is supported by the Noble Foundation the position is initially
> >available for two years with the possibility of renewal for an additional
> >year. Applicants should have a strong background in molecular biology and
> >plant biochemistry.
