Postdoc position at MPIZ Koeln (http://www.mpiz-koeln.mpg.de/)

A motivated individual is sought to establish methods to identify the
target genes of defined transcription factors. DNA microarrays and
hybridisation techniques using fluorescent probes are central to the
project. The position is available in the context of the ZIGIA project
(http://www.mpiz-koeln.mpg.de/~zigia/index.html).

Plants react in response to changes in environmental conditions with the
activation and repression of sets of genes at the level of transcription.
Transcription factors participating in the control of expression of such
genes are encoded by gene families with up to 100 genes. Using Arabidopsis
thaliana MYB-like proteins as an example, the regulatory potential of
distinct transcription factors will be determined. Lines with knock-out
mutations in MYB genes are available. A PhD is required as well as
experience in molecular biology and genetics.

The position is open immediately. Disabled persons with comparable
qualification will be preferred. Please mention the kew word 'DNA
microarrays' and send applications to Bernd Weisshaar (address details
below).

Thanks, Bernd
