MECHANISMS OF PLASTID DIVISION IN PLANT CELLS
University of Nevada, Reno

Two postdoctoral positions are available to investigate molecular
mechanisms associated with chloroplast division in higher plants.  Recent
work from our laboratory has shown that two nuclear-encoded plant
homologues of bacterial cell division protein FtsZ (Osteryoung and
Vierling, 1995, Nature 376: 473-474; Osteryoung, 1996, Plant Physiol. 111S:
43) are essential for plastid division in Arabidopsis.  Several projects
are possible depending on the skills and interests of the successful
candidates.  A Ph.D. in a relevant field and strong background in molecular
biology are required.  Reno is located just east of the Sierra Nevada
Mountains about 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and offers outstanding
recreational opportunities, spectacular scenery, and a near-perfect
climate. Please send CV, brief statement of research experience, and three
letters of reference to Dr. Katherine Osteryoung, Dept. of Biology /314,
University of Nevada, Reno, NV 89557.  Phone (702) 784-6258, FAX (702)
784-1650, email oster_k at med.unr.edu.  Review of applications will begin
2/9/98.  The University of Nevada is an Affirmative Action/Equal
Opportunity employer.
