A postdoctoral position is available to study molecular mechanisms of auxin
action.  We are focusing on the Aux/IAA class of early auxin-inducible genes
in Arabidopsis, which encode short-lived nuclear proteins with properties
reminiscent of transcription factors.  Aux/IAA proteins interact with Auxin
Response Factors (ARFs) and are proposed to regulate secondary gene
expression in response to auxin.  Current research centers on biochemical
aspects of Aux/IAA protein function and its regulation.  Candidates must
have a strong background in protein biochemistry/molecular biology and
should have demonstrated experience with the analysis of protein-DNA
interactions.  The appointment is initially for two years.  Preference will
be given to candidates with the potential to obtain independent funding.

Applicants should send a CV, a cover letter describing research experience
and interests, and the names of three references to: Steffen Abel,
University of California, Davis, Department of Vegetable Crops, One Shields
Avenue, Davis, CA 95616.  Phone: (530) 752 5549; FAX: (530) 752 9659; email:
