A two-year postdoctoral position to study plant amino acid biosynthesis is
available in the laboratory of Georg Jander at the Boyce Thompson Institute
for Plant Research in Ithaca, New York.  Arabidopsis mutants with altered
seed amino acid content were isolated using an HPLC-MS/MS screen (Jander et
al., Plant Journal 39:465-475, 2004).  Further analysis of these mutant
lines will focus on those with alterations in threonine and methionine
metabolism.

Responsibilities of the successful candidate will include design and
implementation of experiments and evaluation of data related to
biosynthesis and transport of amino acids in Arabidopsis.  Development of
additional areas of interest within the scope of the project is
encouraged.  Funding is available for two years, beginning in the spring or
summer of 2005.  Candidates with backgrounds in biochemistry, plant
physiology, molecular biology, or genetics encouraged to apply.  Prior
research experience with Arabidopsis is desirable, but not essential.

The Boyce Thompson Institute is a private non-profit research organization
located on the campus of Cornell University.  Information about the
institute and its facilities can be found at

three references.  To apply for the position or for more information,
