POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH ASSOCIATE


     The Plant Gene Expression Center (PGEC), Albany, CA is seeking a 
Research Molecular Biologist or Research Geneticist to study 
molecular mechanisms of shoot apicial meristem function. The PGEC is 
a joint ARS and University of California, Berkeley (UCB) facility 
located approximately two miles from the UCB campus. The research 
focuses on understanding how stem cell fate is controlled in the 
shoot and floral meristems of higher plants (see 
www.pgec.usda.gov/Fletcher/fletchlab.html for details).  The 
ULTRAPETALA (ULT) gene has recently been identified as playing a role 
in regulating stem cell accumulation in Arabidopsis shoots and 
flowers (Fletcher, J.C. 2001, Development 128: 1323-1333).  The 
successful applicant will be responsible for conducting genetic and 
molecular analyses of ULT-like genes in maize.
     Applicants should have a recent Ph.D. in molecular biology and/or 
genetics and a proven publication record.  Prior experience with 
plants is not required. Two year appointment with benefits.  Salary 
for GS-11/12 position is commensurate with experience. For further 
information, contact: Dr. Jennifer Fletcher, Plant Gene Expression 
Center, 800 Buchanan Street, Albany, CA 94710, phone 510-559-5917 
e-mail: fletcher at nature.berkeley.edu.  A resume or curriculum vitae 
with three references is acceptable for application and should be 
mailed to Dr. Fletcher.  The position will remain open until filled. 
Candidates will be considered as applications are received.  ARS is 
an Equal Opportunity Provider and Employer.
