Please find here after an advertisement for a post-doc position 
available in my lab. I would like this advertisement to be published 
on line on the Arabidopsis Job Posting page.

Post-Doc position immediately available, 3 years
EC-Research Training Network : Auxin and Cell CYcle, Molecular 
mechanisms, cellular and developmental importance (ACCY)

The purpose of ACCY is to unravel the auxin signalling pathways that 
mediate the control of cell growth. The programme will focus on 
identifying the molecular mechanisms underlying auxin action on the 
cell cycle in growing cells as well as quiescent cells which re-enter 
into division under developmental or environmental constraints. ACCY 
brings together seven participants which have accumulated a wide 
spectrum of complementary tools and expertise for analysing auxin 
signalling cascades and the plant cell cycle at the molecular, 
cellular and whole plant levels. The overall aim of ACCY is to 
improve our understanding of
the genetic and molecular control of cell division by the plant 
growth substance auxin in various cell and plant systems using a 
combination of modern biochemical, genetic and molecular cell biology 
Three key objectives can be defined:
Objective 1: Studying the auxin signalling pathway involved in the 
control of cell growth Objective 2: Identifying the molecular 
mechanisms of auxin action on the cell cycle
Objective 3: Investigating the mechanisms promoting the re-entry of 
quiescent cells into division

The candidate will search for novel auxin targets and will contribute 
to the functional characterisation of the auxin-binding protein ABP1, 
following work already in progress in the lab. Background in 
molecular and cellular biology, genetics and/or plant development is 
required. An expertise in genomics and bioinformatics would be an 
advantage but is not conditional. Collaborative work will be 
developed with most partners of the Research Training Network ACCY 
and specific training will be proposed in the context of the network.

Location: Gif sur Yvette, 25 km south of Paris, France
Condition: Due to EC-RTN rules, the position is offered to a PhD 
researcher from the EC or associated States but not France.
