Postdoctoral Position  Pollen Development, Plant Gene Expression Center,
UC-Berkeley, Albany, CA

We are studying several Arabidopsis mutations that alter pollen development.
For details see Chen and McCormick (1996), ìsidecar pollen, an Arabidopsis
thaliana male gametophytic mutant with aberrant cell divisions during pollen
developmentî, Development 122, 3243-3253. Other mutants available for
characterization include dyad pollen (defect in meiotic cytokinesis), odd
man out (defect in meiosis), and raring to go (precocious pollen
germination).Training in molecular biology and genetics is required; prior
experience with Arabidopsis, with reproductive biology or with
microscopy/cell biology is a plus. Funding is available for at least 2
years, but the potential for obtaining partial salary support via fellowship
applications will be considered in applicant selection. Position available
as soon as March 1, 1999 although a later start date can be negotiated; open
until filled. For consideration send a CV, a short statement of research
interests and the names and e-mail addresses and/or phone numbers of 3
references to: sheilamc at nature.berkeley.edu or to Sheila McCormick, Plant
Gene Expression Center, 800 Buchanan St., Albany, CA 94710; FAX (510)-559-5678
