</x-tab>I am looking for a post doc to join my lab (Tobias Baskin,
Division of Biological Sciences, University of Missouri-Columbia) to
work on an NSF-funded project aimed at understanding the regulation
of cell division. The project aims to deepen knowledge of how a
growing plant organ controls the spatial distribution of cell
division, using as a model the root meristem of <i>Arabidopsis
thaliana</i>, and testing the following hypotheses. (1) The root
changes the rate of cell production by changing the number of
dividing cells and not their average rate of division. (2) The number
of dividing cells is limited by the onset of rapid elongation. (3) At
the basal boundary of the meristem, the cessation of division is
triggered by cells reaching a threshold volume.&nbsp; We are testing
these hypotheses by quantifying the spatial distributions of
elongation rate and cell division rate for root cortical and
epidermal cells under conditions chosen to influence cell division.
These conditions include a variety of physiological treatments,
different genotypes, and transgenic plants. Quantification relies on
a kinematic method applied to living plants with minimal disturbance,
which avoids the serious pitfalls of techniques based on labeled
mitoses or the accumulation of metaphase cells. We are also
attempting to observe mitosis in living root cells.<br>
<br>
<x-tab> </x-tab>Funding is available for up to three years. The
applicant must have a Ph. D. in a relevant subject area. I am
particularly interested in applicants with experience in the
molecular control of the cell cycle, or with mathematical prowess,
such as experience with kinematics. To apply, please send me your
curriculum vitae, a description of your research experience, and the
names and addresses (including email) of three references.</font><br>
