Postdoctoral Position

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for 2 yrs to study 
Arabidopsis hexokinase-dependent glucose signaling in the lab of Dr. 
Brandon Moore, Clemson University, Department of Genetics and 
Biochemistry.  Available projects include (1) determining the 
cellular and biochemical mechanism of glucose signal transduction by 
hexokinase; or, (2) studying the function of several hexokinase-like 
genes.  Recent work has established that HXK-dependent glucose 
phosphorylation can be uncoupled from glucose signaling and that 
signaling involves a mitochondrial component.  For either project, 
the candidate will clone genes of interest, do site-directed 
mutagenesis, and evaluate protein functions by protoplast transient 
expression assays and by transformation/analyses of epitope-tagged or 
RNAi transgenic plants.  Candidates must have substantial experience 
in molecular biology and protein chemistry.  Additional skills in 
protoplast isolation, fluorescence microscopy, cloning, RNA analysis, 
making transgenic plants, plus doing enzyme and metabolite assays, 
will enhance an applicant=92s suitability.  To apply, please email by 
Dec. 1, a CV, a statement of research interests and background, as 
well as contact information for at least two references to:
