POSTDOCTORAL FELLOW POSITION FOR RESEARCH ON NITROGEN REGULATORY NETWORKS
AND THE ROLE OF AMINO ACID TRANSPORTERS IN PLANT GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT.
A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Daniel R. Bush
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to work on regulatory
networks that control nitrogen metabolism in Arabidopsis. This is an NSF
funded 2010 project that focuses on the signal transduction pathways and
regulatory genes that control all aspects of nitrogen metabolism using
expression profiling and molecular genetic approaches. Our aim is to use
a custom microarray and signal transduction mutants in a complex series of
experiments that will allow us to identify key genes involved in
regulating nitrogen metabolism across the plant as a multicellular
organism. The individual hired for this position will play a key role in
our microarray analysis and in dissecting nitrogen signaling networks.
This is a multi-investigator project with opportunities to work with labs
involved in nitrogen uptake (Nigel Crawford, UCSD) and assimilation
(Gloria Coruzzi, NYU).
The position will start in the fall. Candidates should have a Ph.D. with
substantial experience in molecular biology or genetics, and a proven
record of accomplishment. To apply, please send a CV and have three
letters of recommendation sent to: Daniel Bush, 190 ERML, University of
Illinois, Urbana, IL 61801. Or e-mail these materials to:
dbush at uiuc.edu
Dr. Bush will be available to discuss this position at the ASPB meeting in
Providence, RI from 7/21 - 7/25, and at the International Workshop in
Plant Membrane Biology in Madison, WI from 8/11 - 8/14.
