Post-Doctoral Position in Plant Cytoskeletal Research

Leaf epidermal development is being used as a model process to identify
genes that are required for polarized cell expansion and normal tissue
function.  Genetic screens have identified several genes that
are essential for normal cytoskeletal organization and cellular
morphogenesis.
Initial research will focus on the characterization of a novel
membrane-spanning
protein that shares amino sequence identity with a component of the
integrin-dependent signal transduction pathway.  The successful
applicant will apply molecular genetic, cell biological,
and biochemical tools to address this question.  Experience in one or
more of the
above areas is desirable.  The development of techniques and reagents
for live-cell imaging will be an important component to this research.

Funding is available for three years, and is immediately available.
