Programmed Cell Death and Xylem formation in Poplar

The aim of this newly initiated project is to study the processes leading
to formation of xylem cells in Poplar with special emphasis on gene
products that can delay induced cell death.  The work will include
analysis of EST libraries, micro-array analysis, and preparation of
subtractive cDNA libraries from hybrid aspen and Arabidopsis.  The work
will be carried out within our recently formed Umeå Plant Science Centre.
The main research areas within the UPSC are photosynthesis and metabolism,
plant development, ecophysiology and forest genetics.  The Centre has
advanced core facilities for chemical analysis, sequencing and production
of transgenic plants.  The UPSC is involved in a large scale Poplar EST
sequencing project ( and is currently
building up an in house facility for functional genomics including
instrumentation for large-scale sequencing and microarray analysis.

The applicant should have a Ph.D. in biology (a background in molecular
biology is preferred) with practical experience in routine molecular
biology techniques.  The fellowship is for one year, with the possibility
of prolongation for a second year.  The fellowship is tax-free and will
amount to 14,000-16,500 SEK per month, depending on experience.  Command
of written and spoken English must be documented.  Closing date for
application is February 25, 2000.
