Post-Doctoral Position

University of California, Berkeley

Plant Gene Expression Center

Albany, CA

A post-doctoral position is available to investigate the molecular 
mechanism of the circadian clock in /Arabidopsis/. Intense study of the 
circadian system in this model plant has yielded a basic understanding 
of the core oscillator, but molecular and biochemical connections 
between many genetically important proteins remain to be made. The 
incumbent will be involved in defining protein function using molecular 
and biochemical approaches, in addition to genetic and genomic analysis 
of mutant lines. More information is on this research program is 
available at the PGEC web site: https://www.pgec.usda.gov/research.

Applicants should have a recent Ph.D., along with a strong background 
and publication record in molecular biology, or a related field. 
Experience in plant biology is not required, but knowledge of one or 
more of the following is a plus: microarray analysis, bioinformatics, 
protein biochemistry, and recombinant DNA techniques, including vector 
construction for plant transformation and in vivo expression studies. 
Salary range is $31,668 – $36,012/yr. depending on experience and track 
record. Funding is available for at least 2 years and benefits are 
provided. Applications should be filed by January 30, 2006. The 
University of California, Berkeley is an equal opportunity, affirmative 
action employer. Applicants should ask referees to review the UC 
Berkeley Statement of Confidentiality found at: 
http://apo.chance.berkeley.edu/evalltr.html.

Applicants should mail or email a cover letter describing their 
professional goals and research experience along with a CV, which 
includes a list of publications and the names and email addresses of 
three referees, to:
