Two Postdoctoral Positions in Polyploidy and Epigenetics at the 
University of Texas at Austin

We seek two highly motivated scientists to work in a dynamic plant 
genetics and genomics laboratory.  One candidate is expected to work 
on functional diversification of duplicate genes and genomes, and 
another candidate will work on genetic and epigenetic mechanisms for 
non-additive gene regulation in Arabidopsis allopolyploids. The 
projects are funded by the NIH and NSF (http://polyploidy.tamu.edu).

Successful candidates should have a Ph.D. in Genetics, Plant Biology, 
Plant Biochemistry or Computational Biology with a solid training in 
Mendelian genetics  or evolutionary genetics  Demonstrated interest 
in genome evolution and epigenetic regulation of gene expression will 
likely be helpful, as will technical skills in DNA sequence analysis, 
RNA detection, protein assays, RNA interference, microarrays, 
computational analysis of genomic and microarray data. The positions 
are available immediately. Salary is competitive with experience.

Interested candidates should send a brief statement of career goals 
and a copy of curriculum vitae including names and addresses of three 
references via email to: Z. Jeffrey Chen (zjchen at mail.utexas.edu).

The Chen lab recently moved to the section of Molecular Cell and 
Developmental Biology (http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/MCDB/) and the 
Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology 
(http://www.icmb.utexas.edu/).  There will be excellent opportunities 
for postdoctoral fellows and graduate students to interact with 
faculty and students among dynamic research groups in the MCDB, 
Integrative Biology (http://www.biosci.utexas.edu/IB/), and the 
Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics 
(http://ccbb.biosci.utexas.edu/).  Please visit http://www.utexas.edu 
for more information about the university and living in Austin.

The University of Texas at Austin is an Affirmative Action/Equal 
Opportunity employer.
