Postdoctoral Position on
Molecular Genetics of Polar Growth

Center for Plant Cell Biology (CEPCEB)
University of California, Riverside, CA

Postdoctoral positions are available in Zhenbiao Yang's laboratory to 
study Rop GTPase signaling in polarized cell growth using the 
Arabidopsis pollen system (Trends in Plant Sicence 6:545-547). Rop 
GTPases orchestrate a signaling network to control polar growth in a 
wide range of cell types  (Plant Cell 14:S375; J Cell Biol. 152:1019; 
Plant Cell 14:763).  The postdoc will identify new components in this 
network using genetic approaches and various molecular and cell 
biological tools available for the system.   Pollen provides a unique 
system for molecular genetic studies of fundamental processes, 
because of the ability to grow in vitro and the haploid genome 
allowing mutant screens in M1/T1 plants. The postdoc will interact 
with a dynamic group of postdocs and graduate students with diverse 
skills in cell biology, molecular biology and genetics. The Yang's 
laboratory is within the Center for Plant Cell Biology 
( and Genomics Institute that is equipped 
with state-of-art microscopy, proteomics, genomics and bioinformatics 
facilities. Motivated individuals with strong background in 
genetics/molecular biology are encouraged to apply.  Send CV, 
publications and research statement to Zhenbiao Yang, Center for 
Plant Cell Biology and Department of Botany and Plant Sciences, 
University of California, Riverside, CA 92521; tel: 909-787-7351;
