A postdoctoral position is available October 1, 2001 at TAIR to develop
bioinformatic methods and tools in analyzing genome-wide expression studies
to understand the 'genomic' basis of cold tolerance of plants.
Overall goals of the project will be to determine the composition of
the low temperature transcriptome in Arabidopsis, organize
cold-regulated genes into regulons, identify genetic loci that control
expression of the regulons, and determine which regulons have important
roles in cold tolerance. Information gathered for Arabidopsis will be
utilized to ask whether the cold tolerance meachanisms are conserved
in plants. Principal Investigator for this project is Dr. Mike Tomashow at
Michigan State University.

The postdoctoral associate will be primarily responsible for
developing a set of bioinformatic tools for comparing genome
annotation data with the microarray data, developing a set of standard
analysis methods to assess the significance of the results from the
microarry data, and to develop data exchange formats for disseminating
the data to other databases for wide-public access. S/he will gain
experience in analyzing microarry data, developing relational
databases, and writing scripts to manage and analyze large-scale data.

Minimum requirements include a Ph.D. in biology or
statistics. Background in computer science a plus but not
