Postdoctoral Scholar - Position at the University of California, Berkeley.

The Department of Plant and Microbial Biology at the University of 
California, Berkeley has an immediate opening for a Postdoctoral 
Scholar - Employee.  A doctoral degree in cell biology or molecular 
biology (or related discipline) is required as is experience with 
plant microscopy and microtechnique.  Experience with transcriptional 
profiling is advantageous.  Salary range is $31,668 - $42,780 
depending on qualifications.  Applicants must have received their 
Ph.D. within the last five years.  The closing date for the receipt 
of applications is Sep. 5, 2006. 

This position, which is funded by an NSF grant, is appointed on 
yearly basis, with the possibility of renewal.  The NSF project 
"Deriving the gene circuitry and network motifs of the Arabidopsis 
defense response" involves dissecting the molecular basis of the 
Arabidopsis - powdery mildew interaction at the single cell level. 
The successful applicant will continue our work using laser 
microdissection to isolate single populations of infected and 
neighboring cells throughout the progression of infection, and 
extract and amplify the mRNA for global expression profiling using 
Affymetrix ATH1 GeneChips.  Analysis of the microarray data is 
performed in conjunction with Co-PI Terry Speed (Statistics, 
Berkeley).  For more information on this project see 
http://pmb.berkeley.edu/~wildermu/nsf.html.  Applicants should submit 
a resume and a summary of research experience via email to Dr. Mary 
Wildermuth at wildermuth at nature.berkeley.edu or by mail to Dr. Mary 
Wildermuth, Department of Plant and Microbial Biology, 111 Koshland 
Hall, University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720-3102.  Three
