A post-doctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of
Dinesh-Kumar at Yale University.  Overall goal of our lab is to understand
molecular mechanisms of host-pathogen interactions.  Specific projects are
aimed at identification and characterization of  genes that encode
components of a signal transduction pathway leading from pathogen infection
to resistance.  The research includes combined genetic, molecular and
biochemical approaches in the plant systems Arabidopsis, tomato and
tobacco. Applicants should have experience in molecular biology and
genetics.  Experience in working with plants is not a requirement.

Yale University MCDB department (http://www.biology.yale.edu) is a part of
university wide combined biological and biomedical sciences program
