Several Postdoctoral Positions are available to work on the recently funded
NSF Plant Genome Program Project - The Alternaria-Brassicacaea Pathosystem
as a Model for Necrotrophic Fungal-Plant Interactions.  This project
combines generation and annotation of a substantial set of ESTs from
infected plant tissues, characterization of thousands of randomly generated
and gene specific targeted fungal knockout mutants, and global
transcriptional profiling of host response during fungal pathogenesis of
multiple species found within the Brassicaceae plant family using
full-genome Arabidopsis microarrays. The project sites are at Colorado State
University, Fort Collins, CO under the direction of Dr. Christopher Lawrence
and at NC State University, Fungal Genomics Laboratory, Raleigh, NC under
the direction of Dr. Thomas Mitchell.

Applicants should have a solid background in molecular genetics, molecular
biology, or a related field, and an excellent publication record. Experience
with plant biology, fungal molecular biology, plant pathology, and/or
microarray analysis of gene expression is highly desirable. Applicants
should  submit a cover letter describing experience, a cv, a list of
publications, and the names of three references to Christopher Lawrence,
Dept. of Bioagricultural Sciences and Pest Management, Colorado State
University, Fort Collins, CO  80523-1177, Phone: 970-491-4297, Fax:
970-491-3862, E-mail: clawrenc at
Those researchers desiring to be located at NC State should indicate so on
their application materials and these will be forwarded to Thomas Mitchell.
