<x-charset Windows-1252>POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
Whole genome analysis of gene expression in Arabidopsis using 
massively parallel signature sequencing (MPSS).

Position and responsibilities: Analyze whole-genome transcriptional 
data of Arabidopsis from MPSS experiments; analyses will involve 
comparisons relative to other expression data, microarray data, and 
genomic sequence information. May involve laboratory work to confirm 
findings. Project is currently underway, and data/database can be 
reviewed at http://mpss.ucdavis.edu.

Qualifications: Requires Ph.D. in genetics, bioinformatics, molecular 
biology, or related area. Candidate should be interested in learning 
new methods of gene expression analysis and genome analysis. The 
candidate should enjoy reading and discussing current literature on 
genome analysis, gene expression, and bioinformatics 
techniques/approaches. The ability and interest to pursue new methods 
and to work closely with laboratory-based scientists is essential. 
The position requires working closely with other scientists and 
database/software developers.

Preferred Qualifications: The most competitive applicant will have 
experience with both plant molecular biology and bioinformatics. 
Familiarity with DNA/protein sequence analysis, including database 
similarity searches, sequence alignments, motif and evolutionary 
analysis is essential. Familiarity with UNIX, PHP (or Perl), and SQL 
is desirable. Candidates should have either strong skills in 
bioinformatics and a good background in molecular biology, or strong 
skills in molecular biology and a good background in bioinformatics.

Salary depends on qualifications and experience. Start date is 
negotiable, but sooner is better than later. Initial contract is for 
one year. Review of applications begins on November 1, and continues 
until position is filled. Send curriculum vitae, brief statement of 
research interests and names of three references to the address 
below. Email is preferable.

The University of Delaware is located in Newark, Delaware, close to 
Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington. The cost of living in 
Delaware is low. Research facilities at the new Delaware 
Biotechnology Institute are excellent.
