Post-Doctoral Fellow Positions
Department of Biology
Colorado State University

Medford Lab

Two post-doctoral positions are available in the Medford Lab in the 
Department of Biology at Colorado State University. We have developed 
synthetic signal transduction systems in plants and linked the 
signaling systems to computationally designed receptors. Input allows 
plants to be highly specific detectors for substances of interest 
(environmental pollutants, explosives, etc.) and provides means to 
control some forms of signal transduction for basic studies.

A Ph.D. in molecular biology, plant molecular biology or a related 
field is required.  Applicants should have experience in molecular 
biology, gene cloning and analysis of transgenic plants. Experience 
in transgene expression and signal transduction in plant systems as 
well as skill in written and verbal communication is desirable.  The 
incumbents are expected to interact with other post-docs, graduate 
students, and part-time undergraduate students.  Duties include a 
variety of molecular biology techniques including synthetic gene 
construction, bacterial expression, production and analysis of 
transgenic plants, planning experimental approaches based on research 
literature, and interpreting results. The successful individuals will 
be self-motivated and capable of independent thought and research. 
The positions will start as soon as possible.

Colorado State University is located in Fort Collins, Colorado a city 
of 120,000 located at the base of the Rocky Mountains about an hour 
north of Denver.  Colorado boasts 300+ sunny days a year and numerous 
recreational activities exist from the nearby mountains such as world 
class skiing and hiking.
