Two postdoctoral positions are available immediately to work on 
host-virus interactions. Project is funded for four years by 
NSF-Plant Genome program.  Candidates will be using functional 
genomics (virus-induced gene silencing, VIGS) and proteomics 
approaches. Candidates will co-ordinate their efforts with a 
bioinformatics programmer under the guidance of Dr. Hongyu Zhao's lab 
at the Yale medical school. 

Candidates must have a strong background in biochemistry and 
molecular biology. Experience in protein complex purification, HPLC, 
gel filtration chromatography, 2D gel electrophoresis and Mass 
spectrometry is a plus. Proven publication record is necessary. 
Experience in plants is not a requirement. Please send your CV and 
three reference letters to savithramma.dinesh-kumar at

Candidates will be joining a dynamic group of post-docs, graduate 
students and technicians. For more information visit our lab page Additional information
