POSTDOCTORAL POSITION IN SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION AVAILABLE

In the laboratory of Julian Schroeder
University of California, San Diego
Department of Biology and Center for Molecular Genetics


 Two Postdoctoral positions are available January-Winter/2000 and Summer
2000. Our research focuses on molecular dissection of signal
transduction mechanisms in Arabidopsis guard cells. The laboratory
offers excellent research conditions and facilities.  The postdoctoral
researcher will identify and characterize new molecular mechanisms in
guard cell and ABA signal transduction. The research will include a
combination of new molecular genetic screens, disruption of guard cell
signaling genes, Ca2+ imaging and state-of-the-art signal transduction
analyses (for example: Pet et al., 1998, Science, 282:287-290).
Furthermore, we are disrupting and mutagenizing a number of important
signal transduction genes in guard cells. Genetic and functional
analyses will allow direct characterization of the functions of new
plant signaling genes.

 A second project in the lab focuses on the molecular mechanisms of
metal sensing and nutrition and detoxification of toxic metals (e.g.
Clemens et al., 1999, EMBO J., 18:3325-3333) for which one of the
postdoctoral applicants will be considered.

 Postdoctoral associates with expertise in one of the following fields
would be preferable: Preferably Arabidopsis molecular genetics or
alternatively patch clamping or molecular biology/biochemistry. The
postdocs will be trained in state-of-the-art techniques to complement
and expand previous experience.  Starting salary will be competitive.
