Post-doctoral Research Positions in Functional Genomics of Shoot 
Meristem Dormancy

Three post-doctoral positions are available as part of a new three 
year initiative to use the tools of functional genomics to understand 
the control of dormancy in the major shoot meristems of arabidopsis 
and poplar.  This integrated programme will involve three different 
laboratories, each focusing on a different meristematic system:

Post 1 (Quote Reference: 549) Dormancy of the shoot apical meristem 
in the seed.
This position will be supervised by Dr. Mike Holdsworth at IACR 
Rothamsted (for further information;  
Apply by application form only, available with further particulars 
from HR Department, IACR-Rothamsted, Harpenden, Herts, AL5 2JQ. 
 E-mail at

Salary for Post 1 will normally be between =A320,200 - =A324,000 per annum.

Post 2 (Reference: DR0211) Dormancy of axillary meristems.
This position will be supervised by Dr. Ottoline Leyser at the 
University of York and informal enquiries may be made to Dr Leyser 
(email hmol1 at
=46urther information and details of how to apply are available from 
the Personnel Office, University of York, Heslington, York YO10 5DD 
or e-mail: jobs at quoting the appropriate ref. number, or 

Post 3 (Reference: PRA/5) Dormancy of the cambium.
This position will be supervised by Dr. Malcolm Campbell at the 
University of Oxford.  Further particulars can be downloaded from and potential applicants are welcome to contact 
Dr. Campbell (malcolm.campbell at to discuss informally 
further aspects of the project.  
Applications, including a cv and the names and addresses of two 
referees and clearly quoting reference PRA/5 should be sent to the 
Administrator, Department of Plant Sciences, Oxford OX1 3RB. The 
University of Oxford is an Equal Opportunities Employer

Salary  for Posts 2 and 3 will be within RSA1 range.

Each position is for 3 years, with one researcher based in each of 
the participating laboratories. All applicants should have a Ph.D. in 
plant molecular biology and experience with molecular mapping would 
be particularly advantageous for Post 3.

Closing date for applications: March 15th
