Postdoctoral position

Metabolic regulation of Plant/Insect interactions.

A postdoctoral position is available starting in September at the 
University of California, Davis to identify genes controlling the 
activation of secondary metabolites that deter insect and fungal 
attack. The laboratory is investigating plant/insect and plant/fungal 
interactions utilizing a broad toolkit including, mendelian genetics, 
quantitative genetics, biochemistry, metabolite profiling, molecular 
biology and ecological genetics. We have recently initiated a set of 
experiments studying how plant secondary metabolites deter 
Trichoplusia ni and are cloning a number of naturally variable loci 
regulating this interaction (Genetics 161(1):325-332, Plant Cell 
13(6):2793-2807, Plant Cell 13(3):681-693). These loci will be 
analyzed at the biochemical, molecular, evolutionary and ecological 
levels. In addition, the researcher would be encouraged to initiate 
new research avenues within the laboratories general focus. Salary 
will be determined based on the experience, mutual interests and 
university policy. The po
