Position<br>
Arabidopsis Signal Transduction<br>
<br>
A post-doctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory
of Mannie Liscum at the University of Missouri-Columbia.&nbsp; This
project deals with the reverse genetic analyses of the
<i>NPH3</i>/<i>RPT2</i> gene family in Arabidopsis.&nbsp; This large
family of genes (&gt;15 members) encode novel proteins, however both
NPH3 and RPT2 have been shown genetically to be required for early
signal transduction during response to phototropic stimuli.&nbsp; We
hypothesize that this novel family of proteins function as molecular
scaffolds to mediate the assembly/stability of signal transduction
components in a variety of signal-response systems (i.e., not limited
to phototropism).&nbsp; A variety of approaches will be used address
the biological roles of members of this family, including isolation
of knock-out mutants via T-DNA and transposon mutagenesis, generation
of mutants through anti-sense construction, and transgenic
complementation of (uncloned) mutants with known map-positions.&nbsp;
Once such molecularly identified &quot;resources&quot; are in hand,
the candidate will initiate physiological and biochemical
analyses.&nbsp; (Additional information about the Liscum lab can be

<br>
Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in molecular biology,
biochemistry, genetics, or biological science.&nbsp; Experience with
Arabidopsis is not required but will be an advantage to a
candidate.<br>

Applicants should send a C.V., a description of their research
experience, and the names/addresses (including email) of three
