Postdoctoral positions available in the laboratory of Doris Wagner
at the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.

One project involves the use of genomic approaches to identify and
characterize LEAFY-regulated target genes. This project is based on an
activatable LEAFY-glucocorticoid receptor fusion protein (Wagner et al.,
1999, Transcriptional activation of APETALA1 by LEAFY, Science 285,
582-4). Candidates should have experience in plant molecular biology.
Proficiency in RNA analysis using RT-PCR, Northern hybridization or
real-time PCR is a plus.

The second project analysis of the function of SPLAYED, a putative plant
chromatin remodeling factor (Wagner and Meyerowitz (2002). SPLAYED, a
Novel SWI/SNF ATPase Homolog, Controls Reproductive Development in
Arabidopsis, Curr Biol 12, 85-94). Candidates should have biochemical
and molecular experience.

Further details about the position can be obtained upon request.
Interested scientists should send a detailed CV and contact information
for three references.
