We are seeking a highly motivated individual interested in a project that
employs a novel strategy to generate a population of activation tagged
Arabidopsis plants.  Unlike the populations of activation tagged plants
currently available, activation of genes in the new population will be
inducible and therefore avoid problems associated with viability and
fertility that prevent recovery many activation-tagged phenotypes.  The
successful candidate will be involved in making the appropriate plasmid
constructs, generating a population of activation tagged plants and testing
the effectiveness of the system. Applicants should have proven research
skills in molecular biology, with particular emphasis on analysis of plant
gene expression and molecular genetic manipulation of plants. Experience
with Arabidopsis transformation, reporter genes and genetic would be

This position requires excellent communication skills and is available
immediately. Applicants should have a PhD degree and relevant experience.
Salary will be competitive and commensurate with qualification and
experience. Interested candidates should send a cover letter outlining
research experience and interests, a curriculum vitae, and the names and
phone numbers of 3 referees to Dr. George Haughn, Department of Botany,
