Applications are invited for a Post-Doc position at the National 
Research Council of Canada, Plant Biotechnology Institute in 
Saskatoon, to investigate plant lipid metabolism. The primary focus 
of the position will be to study enzymes and regulatory factors 
involved in storage lipid deposition in seeds. Independent research 
concerning other aspects of carbon metabolism is also encouraged. The 
project includes biochemical as well as molecular biological 
approaches such as enzyme characterization, Arabidopsis mutant 
screening, metabolite analysis, and metabolic engineering to 
manipulate carbon flux through transgenic means. A suitable candidate 
should have strong interests in plant metabolism and skilled in 
standard molecular biology techniques and/or metabolic analysis. 
Experience in functional geneomic is desired. Interested applicants 
should send a CV and letter of interest to Jitao Zou at the Plant
