TWO POST-DOCTORAL POSITIONS are available immediately to study
post-transcriptional gene silencing (PTGS) in plants.  The current
research in this lab focuses on the mechanism of action of a viral
protein  (HC-Pro) that suppresses gene silencing in plants
(Anandalakshmi et al. 1998, PNAS 95, 13079-13084).  We have identified
four cellular proteins that interact with HC-Pro in the yeast two hybrid
system and recently reported that one of these HC-Pro-interactors, like
HC-Pro itself, is a suppressor of gene silencing (Anandalakshmi et al.
2000, Science 290, 142-144).  Successful candidates will join an
interactive team investigating different aspects of HC-Pro action in
both tobacco and arabidopsis systems.  A strong background in
molecular/cell biology and experience with arabidopsis are a plus.

Columbia, South Carolina is located 2 hours drive from both the
beautiful beaches along the Atlantic Ocean and the Blue Ridge
Mountains.  The cost of living is relatively low compared to many areas
of the US.  The Biology Department at the University is large and
diverse with a strong and interactive group of young plant molecular
biology faculty.

Potential applicants should send resume and names of two references to:
Dr. Vicki Vance, Department of Biological Sciences, University of South
Carolina, Columbia, SC 29208.  E-mail: vance at biol.sc.edu
