<font size=4>Postdoctoral Position: Phytochrome<br>
University of Wisconsin-Madison <br>
Richard D. Vierstra<br>
<br>
Position is available immediately to study
the</font><font face="Arial, Helvetica" size=4> mechanism of action of
the phytochrome photoreceptor family in plants with an emphasis on
Arabidopsis.&nbsp; Research will involve biochemical, genetic, and
reverse genetic approaches to identify and analyze factors that affect
phytochrome A function and its turnover by the ubiquitin/26S proteasome
proteolytic pathway.&nbsp; One factor of special interest may be
responsible for downregulating phytochrome A activity and thus involved
in the adaptation of plants to light.&nbsp;&nbsp; Work will involve
identification of important factors by 2-hybrid analysis,
structure/function studies on the phytochrome photoreceptor, analysis of
plants ectopically expressing mutant phytochromes, and/or the genetic
analysis of various Arabidopsis photomorphogenic mutants.&nbsp;&nbsp;
Experience in molecular and biochemical techniques is necessary, but
prior <br>
work with plants is not required. </font>&nbsp; <br>
<br>
The University of Wisconsin is a first class research university with one
of the largest groups of scientists focusing on biology in general, and
on Arabidopsis in particular.&nbsp; The Arabidopsis group is currently
funded by a 5-year NSF grant specifically to train scientists working on
this plant and hosts the International Arabidopsis Meeting, held on
campus every other year.&nbsp; The University is situated in Madison, the
capitol of Wisconsin and is routinely rated as &quot;one of the best
livable cities in America&quot;.&nbsp; The surrounding region supports a
wide array of both cultural and outdoor activities. <br>
