Several postdoctoral positions are available to study Rop GTPase-dependent
pathways in Arabidopsis in the laboratory of Zhenbiao Yang at the Center
for Plant Cell Biology, University of California-Riverside.  Rop GTPases
(monomeric G proteins, 11 genes in Arabidopsis) act as pivotal switches in
many signaling
pathways in Arabidopsis, e.g., those that control cell polarity development
in various cell types, hormone
accumulation and responses, and stress responses.  The successful candidate
will focus on a specific
Rop-dependent pathway that is of mutual interest to the candidate and the
PI, and will use a comprehensive approach involving proteomics, genomics,
genetics, and/or biochemistry.  The candidate will be able to take
advantages of various loss-of-function and gain-of-function Rop mutants and
Rop-interacting proteins that are available in the laboratory.    Excellent
facilities are available at the UCR Center for Plant Cell Biology and the
Genomics Institute.   Skills in gene cloning and/or protein purification
are required and strong background in plant physiology, cell biology,
and/or biochemistry preferred.  Qualified interested candidates should
contact Zhenbiao Yang, Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, University
of California, Riverside, CA 92521.   Email: zhenbiao.yang at; tel:
