A Postdoctoral position is available as part of SY-STEM, a new Marie-Curie
Research and training Network that focusses on Systems biology approaches to
analyse stem cell function in Arabidopsis thaliana. The postholder will work
at the Institute of Genetics, University of Duesseldorf, in the laboratory
of Prof. Ruediger Simon. Members of the SY-STEM network will collaborate
closely to use genetic, molecular and cellular approaches, imaging,
large-scale genomic and modeling technqiues to  address key questions of
plant meristem function. The Network is funded by the EU, starting in
=46ebruary 2005 or at a suitable later date. This 3-year post is open for
(non-german) nationals of the European Union or associated countries.
The Simon lab has a record in analysing signaling in plant meristems. The
group currently comprises of one postdoctoral researcher, three graduate
students, two diploma students and two technicians. Language in the lab is
