Post-doctoral position available in light/metabolic signal transduction in
Arabidopsis.

A post-doctoral position is available in the laboratory of Gloria Coruzzi
at New York University.  The position relates to the study of light and
metabolic signal transduction pathways regulating amino acid biosynthesis
genes using molecular-genetics approaches in Arabidopsis.   In addition to
the molecular analysis of this process in wild-type plants, transgenic
Arabidopsis have been constructed to perform positive selection for mutants
impaired in sensing light, carbon or nitrogen metabolites.  Our Web page
can be accessed through: http://www.nyu.edu/gsas/dept/bio/

The position is available immediately  and the start date is flexible.

Candidates interested in this position should send a CV which includes at
least three references with phone and email addresses for each reference.
