Hello !
I am a Ph.D.  at Seoul National  University in  Korea.  I received Ph.D.
from  Seoul National
University under direction of Dr. C.S. An on February of this year. I am
therefore looking for
a postdoctorial position where  I can apply knowledge  of  plant  molecular
biology.  I   have
included summary of research experience and CV for reference.
Thank you,
Sincerely yours,
Ho Bang Kim

Summary of research experience :
I majored in  host's part of nitrogen-fixing  symbiosis in the course of
Ph.D. To study host
plant's role  in actinorhizal  plants-Frankia symbiosis at  molecular
biological  level, following
experiments were carried out in Elaeagnus   umbellata (autumn olive,  a
woody  plant) as a
model   plant; 1) Searching for  nodule-specific polypeptides by  SDS-PAGE,
2) Isolation  of
nodule-specific/enhanced  cDNA   clones  by  differential   hybridization
and  grouping   by
cross-hybridization and  partial nucleotide sequencing,   3) Nucleotide
sequence determination
and  genomic Southern  hybridization of  cDNA  clones showing  homology
with asparagine
synthetase,  chitinase  and  polyubiquitin,  respectively, 4)  Northern
hybridization,  RT-PCR
analysis and in situ hybridization for understanding temporal and spatial
expression  pattern of
the cloned genes.
