A Postdoctoral Research Associate position in plant biology is available at
the Department of Biochemistry, University of Nebraska ? Lincoln, in the
newly established, NIH-funded Center for Redox Biology and in association
with the Plant Science Initiative.

The successful candidate is expected to conduct vigorous research in the
field of the regulation of the cellular redox status in plants, mediated by
vitamin C. More specifically, s/he will be involved in the molecular and
physiological characterization of a newly described class of membrane
proteins, named cytochromes b561. These integral proteins catalyze
ascorbate-driven electron transport and are involved in ascorbate
homeostasis and ascorbate-mediated plant responses. The project includes
biochemical as well as molecular biological approaches such as protein
expression and purification, subcellular and tissue localizations,
transformation of Arabidopsis and RNAi technology. A Ph.D. degree is
required and experience with plant biochemical and molecular techniques is
desirable.

The Plant Science Initiative is an interdisciplinary research and training
program in the basic plant sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln,
combining outstanding research facilities and an excellent group of faculty
with research strengths in several areas of plant biology research.

The Center for Redox Biology is a focus group for research in the general
area of redox biochemistry, including top quality research laboratories
involved in biomedical research, such as aging, cancer, redox homeostasis,
redox signaling and others.

Research will be conducted at the George W. Beadle Center for Genetics
Research, which affords state of the art research facilities and an array
of core facilities, including proteomics, genomics, plant transformation,
microscopy, bioinformatics and flow cytometry, to provide student and
postdoctoral trainees with a phenomenal environment in which to conduct
research.

The position is offered for one year, with the option to extend with an
additional year, depending on performance and funding availability.
Applications including C.V., a statement of research interests and three
letters of reference should be sent to:
