A postdoctoral position is available starting immediately to study the
role of ARG1 and ARG1-like proteins in the transduction of gravitropic
signals in <italic>Arabidopsis thaliana</italic>. For more information
on the research area see:

Sedbrook, Chen and Masson (1999) <italic>ARG1</italic> (Altered
Response to Gravity) encodes a DnaJ-like protein that potentially
interacts with the cytoskeleton. <italic>Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA

This project is part of a broader research program aimed at
characterizing the molecular mechanisms by which <italic>Arabidopsis
thaliana</italic> roots utilize mechanical information in their
environment to control the pattern of their growth. General information
on the overall program, including a list of recent publications, can be
