Genetic analysis of germination in Arabidopsis

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position at the Institute of
Arable Crops Research (IACR). This position will use transcriptome
approaches to define global gene expression patterns, and molecular
genetic approaches to clone and characterise loci important for the
regulation of germination in Arabidopsis.

Holdsworth, M.J. (2000) The Arabidopsis COMATOSE locus regulates
germination potential. Development, 127, 3759-3767.
Holdsworth, M., S. Kurup, R. McKibbin (1999) Molecular and genetic
mechanisms regulating the transition from embryo development to
germination. Trends in Plant Science, 4, 275-280

Candidates should hold a postgraduate qualification in molecular
biology/molecular genetics. This three year appointment will be to Pay
Band 6-PD, with a salary in the range of 19,500 - 23,00 UKP per annum,
