To whom it may concern,

I would like to add a job posting to the Arabidopsis job posting list
(see below).


Thomas Greb

Postdoctoral Position in Vienna, Austria

A postdoctoral position studying the development of vascular tissue in
Arabidopsis thaliana is available at the Gregor-Mendel-Institute (GMI)
in Vienna, Austria. The earliest start-date is March 2006. Applications
are considered beginning October 2005 and are taken until a suitable
candidate is found.

Growth and functional dynamics of multicellular organisms depend to a
large extent on their internal transport systems. In plants the vascular
tissue is the main system mediating transport within the plant organism
over long distances and also determines the mechanical properties of the
plant body. In order to establish a relevant and competitive research
project the postdoc will develop and perform fundamental mutagenesis
screens with the aim to identify and characterize factors involved in
the development of the vasculature. In a second approach he or she will
investigate the role of chromatin remodelling in the establishment and
maintenance of a tissue specific gene expression profile in a complex
organism like Arabidopsis thaliana. 

Candidates are expected to hold a PhD in Molecular Biology and should be
familiar with genetics. Experiences with histological and microscopic
techniques are beneficial. Furthermore, he or she should regard it as a
challenge to contribute to the establishment of a new research program
within the lively field of molecular plant development.

The new established GMI provides a stimulating research atmosphere which
is embedded in the attractive scientific environment of Vienna. Vienna
is furthermore a lively city with a wide range of cultural events and a
famous history. For more information about the GMI please contact

Applicants should send a CV, a cover letter outlining his or her
research experience and career goals, and arrange to have two letters of
reference sent to: Thomas Greb, John Innes Centre, Norwich Research
Park, Colney, Norwich NR4 7UH, UK, email: thomas.greb at gmi.oeaw.ac.at
(contact by email is preferred).
