<b>POST DOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE POSITION <br>
In Plant Proteomics/Plant Cell Wall Biology<br>
<br>
</b>Department of Plant Biology<br>
Cornell University<br>
<br>
A postdoctoral research associate position is available to help develop a
new NSF-funded project, utilizing functional genomics approaches to study
plant cell walls. The project involves the application of proteomics to
characterize and map cell wall protein populations, using tomato fruit
development as a model system. The position will also involve working
closely with other tomato genomics-related initiatives at Cornell,
including microarray analyses and the mapping of cell wall genes. <br>
<br>
The plant cell wall is a fundamental determinant of cell expansion and
differentiation and yet the enzymatic bases of its synthesis, assembly
and reorganization during growth and development remain poorly
characterized. The candidate will be expected to help develop a
systematic approach to the characterization of the protein complement of
the cell wall, or cell wall sub-proteome, during tomato fruit
development. This will provide important insight into processes
accompanying cell wall modification during fruit expansion and ripening.
Broad questions to be addressed include:<br>
1) What are the qualitative and quantitative characteristics of the
protein populations present in the tomato fruit cell wall and how do
those characteristics change during fruit ontogeny?<br>
2) How do the patterns of apoplastic protein expression differ between
wild type and non-softening mutant fruit?<br>
<br>
The position is funded for up to three years.<br>
<br>
Qualifications:<br>
A PhD in biochemistry, molecular biology, or a related discipline is
required. Experience in mass spectrometry and protein separation and
analysis would be advantageous.<br>
<br>
Applicants should send a curriculum vitae and names and contact
