A postdoctoral associate position is available as part of a project 
funded by the Department of Energy to study environmental stress 
perception and signal transduction in Arabidopsis (JBC, 2004, 297: 
207-215; Plant Physiol. 2003, 132: 1041-1052; PNAS, 2002, 99: 
8436-8441).  A major focus of our work is the dissection of the 
Salt-Overly-Sensitive (SOS) signaling pathway that regulates 
intracellular sodium ion homeostasis and salt tolerance in 
Arabidopsis.  Our current studies are determining the molecular 
mechanisms regulating the activities of the SOS pathway components 
and identifying additional SOS pathway targets.  We are looking for a 
highly motivated individual with a Ph.D. degree and with the 
demonstrated ability to carry out outstanding research in the fields 
of plant biology, genetics, or related disciplines.  Proven 
experience with molecular biology techniques and demonstrated skills 
in written and oral communication are essential qualifications. 
 Ability to interact and work collaboratively with others is also 
critical.  Position is available September 1, 2004.  To Apply: Send 
curriculum vitae and the names and contact information (address, 
phone, fax and e-mail) for three references to Karen Schumaker, 
Ph.D., Dept. of Plant Sciences, University of Arizona, Tucson,
