<x-rich><fontfamily><param>Times</param><bigger><bigger>A postdoctoral position
is available to study EMF-mediated floral repression.  The EMBRYONIC
FLOWER (EMF) genes are identified using mutants that flower upon
germination.  EMF1 encodes a putative transcriptional regulator and
EMF2, a PcG-like protein.  Both proteins are localized to the nucleus.
Molecular genetic studies indicate that these proteins function in a
protein complex to repress flower organ-specific genes. For more
information, see most recent publications, Sung et al. 2003 Current
Opinion in Plant Biology 6:29-35, and Moon et al., 2003. Plant Cell,
March issue.  Current projects are aimed at studying EMF protein
expression and their function. Candidates should have strong background
in molecular biology and protein biochemistry. Please send your
curriculum vitae, a statement of research experience, and names and
telephone numbers of three references to Dr. Renee Sung by e-mail,
zrsung at nature.berkeley.edu.
