Dear collegues
please bring the following PhD position to the attention of suitable

thank you very much

Christoph Ringli

A PhD position is available in the field of plant molecular biology at
the Institute of Plant Biology, University of Zurich.  We are
characterizing a new class of cell-wall proteins of Arabidopsis, which
are involved in the regulation of growth and expansion of the plant cell
wall. The work involves an enhancer/suppressor-screen based on a
previously isolated mutant, molecular-genetic approaches to isolate
knock-out mutants of members of this gene family and the
characterization of the function of these proteins by other
molecular-biological and (immuno-) histochemical methods. The successful
candidate should have a diploma/masters or equivalent degree in biology.
Experience in molecular biology is favorable, knowledge in either
German, French or English is necessary. The project is funded according
to the regulations of the Swiss National Science Foundation. The
position can be filled beginning of October 2000 and will remain open
until a suitable candidate is found.
