Post-doctoral position
Iowa State University, Ames

A post-doctoral position is available from August 2002, for up to 
three years, to study the role of vacuolar autophagy during nutrient 
stress responses in Arabidopsis. Autophagy involves the uptake and 
degradation of portions of cytoplasm by the vacuole, to recycle 
components and maintain essential cell processes. The project will 
involve the functional characterization of genes that are potentially 
required for autophagy, using biochemical, cell biology and molecular 
genetic techniques. A strong background in molecular biology is 
essential, and experience in plant cell biology is an advantage. 
Please send curriculum vitae, including list of publications, 
description of research interests, and names and e-mail addresses of 
three referees to Dr Diane Bassham, Department of Botany, 353 Bessey 
Hall, Iowa State University, Ames, IA 50011, USA; e-mail 
bassham at See 
for additional information.
