Postdoctoral Associate - Genomics approaches in plant-microbe interaction
Torrey Mesa Research Institute (TMRI; formerly Novartis Agricultural
Discovery Institute)
San Diego, California, USA.

A postdoctoral associate position is available immediately in Fumi
Katagiri's group.  A potential project for the successful candidate is to
supervise a large scale reverse genetic screen of Arabidopsis T-DNA
insertion lines for phenotypes in interactions with pathogens and to further
characterize interesting lines resulting from the screen.  Other potential
projects, such as fungal virulence factor study and development of a new
global expression profiling analysis method, are also options depending on
the interests of the individual.  The group operates similarly to basic
research groups at academic institutions, with a strong emphasis on quality
research, rapid publication, and participation in conferences.  This
position is for one year and renewable based on performance for an
additional two years.  A Ph.D. in molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry,
and/or a related area is required.  Strong skills in molecular biology is
essential.  Experience in protein chemistry, computer programming, and/or a
practical level of statistics are desirable.  Experience in plant biology is
preferred.  The compensation is US$40,000/year or higher, based on years of
experience.  An excellent benefit package is also available.  TMRI is an
equal opportunity employer.  For information about TMRI, visit
