Postdoctoral Associate Position in Developmental Physiology

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 December 1, 2004.  To 
apply, send curriculum vitae and the names and contact information 
(address, phone, fax and e-mail) for three references to Karen
