Molecular genetics of the oomycete fungus, Phytophthora infestans

Candidates are sought for two postdoctoral positions to study the
molecular genetics of Phytophthora infestans, an oomycete fungus that
causes the late blight diseases of potato and tomato. Positions are
available in either of several projects. These include the positional
cloning of fungicide resistance genes, the characterization of genes
involved in sexual development and sporulation, and comparative studies
of the structure and expression of mating type loci throughout the
genus. Funding for these positions come from sources that include USDA
and NSF grants. Additional information about the laboratory is
available at: http://cnas.ucr.edu/~ppath/faculty/hj.html.

Applicants should have experience in molecular biological techniques.
Depending on the project, the experiments will involve methods such as
genetic mapping, chromosome walking using BAC libraries, fungal
transformation, cDNA cloning, expression analysis, and gene
characterization; experience in such areas would be a plus but is not

Riverside is located in Southern California, and is about 1-1.5 hours
Los Angeles and San Diego, mid-way between the ocean
and the mountains.
