POSTDOCTORAL POSITION in bioinformatics is available IMMEDIATELY at
the Carnegie Institution, Stanford, California.  This position will
conduct bioinformatic analysis and research using data from DNA
expression microarrays and TDNA knockouts in Arabidopsis.

This NSF-funded collaboration among several US academic institutions
is working to utilize and develop state-of-the-art technologies in
Arabidopsis genomics.  The group created by this NSF grant is called
the Arabidopsis Functional Genomics Consortium (AFGC).  Our project
includes services and technology development in plant gene expression
using DNA microarray technology and PCR-assisted site-selected
mutagenesis to functionally characterize the Arabidopsis genome.
Special emphasis will be placed on the characterization of
plant-specific genes and the development and adaption of
bioinformatics methods to support these technologies.

This postdoctoral position is at the Carnegie Institution of
Washington, Department of Plant Biology located on the campus of
Stanford University.  The computing staff work closely with the
Brown/Botstein microarray group located at the Stanford Department of
Genetics.  The database and analysis software used for the microarray
data were developed and are maintained by staff within the Genetics
Department where microarray projects on yeast, human, and mouse are
