POST-DOCTORAL POSITION IN TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT FOR FUNCTIONAL 
GENOMICS, in the laboratory of David W. Galbraith at the University 
of Arizona.

A postdoctoral position is immediately available to develop novel 
techniques for high-throughput analysis of cell-specific gene 
expression in Arabidopsis thaliana.  The project is funded by the
NSF-Plant Genome program, and is a collaboration with Dr. Julia 
Bailey-Serres at the University of California, Riverside.  This 
project involves a combination of microarrays, Fluorescent Protein 
targeting, epitope tagging, and flow cytometry and cell sorting. 

Applicants should have a background in molecular biology or a related 
field, a strong record of publication, and an interest in technology 
development for biological systems. Experience in high throughput 
techniques is desirable. Since the technologies to be developed will 
have applicability to all eukaryotes, experience in higher plants is 
not a precondition.  Applications should include a curriculum vitae 
and the names of three references, and should be send to David 
Galbraith, University of Arizona, Department of Plant Sciences, 303 
Forbes Building, Tucson AZ 85721 (email: galbraith at arizona.edu).

The University of Arizona Department of Plant Sciences comprises a 
dynamic group of researchers, including Drs. Vicki Chandler, David 
Gang, Richard Jorgensen, Brian Larkins, Cari Soderlund, Elizabeth 
Vierling, Rod Wing, Ramin Yadegari, and Jian-Kang Zhu. This provides 
an excellent environment for broad cross-disciplinary training in 
Plant Genomics.  We are also extraordinarily well equipped with 
modern instrumentation for plant genomics, including microarray 
production and analysis, real-time PCR, confocal and multiphoton 
microscopy, luminescence imaging, flow cytometry and sorting, high 
throughput sequencing, and genome mapping. 

More information, including recent publications from the Galbraith 
laboratory can be obtained from the website
