Postdoctoral Positions in Functional Genomics/Microarrays
The Pennsylvania State University, University Park

Several postdoctoral positions (Ph.D. required) are available immediately
in the area of Arabidopsis functional genomics. One position focuses on
development of new microarray techniques to analyze transcriptional
responses to abiotic stresses. Applicants for this position should have an
interest in technology development and ideally should have some prior
experience with microarrays. A second position will center around the use
of molecular genetic tools (e.g. T-DNA knockouts, yeast two-hybrid analysis
of interacting proteins, etc.) to assess the functional roles of ion
channels and the signal transduction proteins that regulate them.  A third
position will involve calcium imaging and electrophysiological analysis of
transgenic and knockout plants. Applicants for this third position should
have experience with either calcium imaging or patch clamp technology. For
recent papers see Science 287: 300-303 (2000); Plant Physiology 123:
807-809 (2000); PNAS 96: 12192-12197 (1999); Plant Mol. Biol. 40: 55-64
(1999); Plant Cell 8: 2359-2368 (1996); PNAS 91: 6310-6314 (1994). Please
e-mail or mail your CV, a cover letter describing interests and expertise,
and the contact information for three references to: Dr. Sally Assmann,
Biology Department, The Pennsylvania State University, 208 Mueller
Laboratory, University Park, PA, 16802; e-mail: sma3 at psu.edu; phone (814)
863-9579. Informal inquiries are welcome. Review of applications will begin
immediately and continue until the positions are filled. The Penn State
University Park campus is located in State College, a friendly college town
in the scenic hills of central PA. AA/EOE.
