Hi all,

I would very much appreciate it if you would bring this post-doctoral
position ad to the attention of any members of your research laboratory
who are considering a career at a predominantly undergraduate
institution.  Thanks!

Jon


Applications are invited for a POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCH-TEACHING POSITION
in the laboratory of Jonathan Monroe at James Madison University.  The
research involves investigating the physiological function of a secreted
alpha-amylase in Arabidopsis using T-DNA insertion mutants, the
construction of transgenic plants, protein purification and
characterization, and measurements of starch metabolism.  This work is
funded through an NSF-RUI (Research at Undergraduate Institutions)
grant.  Candidates should have a Ph.D. degree in plant molecular biology
and be considering a career at a predominantly undergraduate
institution.  In addition to gaining experience carrying out research
with undergraduates, the post-doc will also undertake some classroom and
laboratory teaching in a sophomore-level Cell and Molecular Biology
course and in an upper-level course fitting the background of the
post-doc.  Travel support will be available for the post-doc to attend
the national conferences of ASPB and the Council on Undergraduate
Research.  The position is offered for one year, with the option to
extend two additional years.

JMU is located in Harrisonburg, VA, in the heart of the Shenandoah
Valley, and is about a two-hour drive from Washington, DC.  The area
affords many opportunities for outdoor recreation, with the George
Washington National Forest and Shenandoah National Park located nearby.

Candidates should send (either by fax or e-mail) curriculum vitae, a
brief statement of research and teaching experiences, and the names,
email addresses and telephone numbers of three references to: Dr.
Jonathan Monroe, Department of Biology, MSC 7801, James Madison
University, Harrisonburg, Virginia 22807.  Phone: (540) 568-6649, fax
