POSTDOCTORAL POSITION: TRANSLATION IN PLANTS
Join a dynamic lab that is active in studying RNA structure and function
in virus replication and translation. Your job would be to characterize
and optimize a viral mRNA sequence that gives efficient cap-independent
translation in plants with the goal of using it for high-level gene
expression in transgenic plants.
Experience in RNA and/or plant molecular biology desired.
Start: Summer or Fall. Duration: At least two years.
