A postdoctoral position is immediately available to work on projects to
investigate the molecular mechanisms and components of cell-to-cell
communication mediated by plasmodesmata in plants. We have demonstrated
recently that macromolecular trafficking through plasmodesmata plays
important roles in controlling developmental and physiological processes
(Lee et al, 2005, Plant Cell, 17:2832-2847; Lucas and Lee, 2004, Nature Rev
Mol Cell Biol. 5:712-726; Lee et al., 2003, Science, 299: 392-396). The
current projects involve molecular dissection of plasmodesmal targeting
mechanism and identification of plasmodesmal channel components. The
successful candidates will use a combination of molecular biology, reverse
genetics, cell biology, and biochemical/proteomics approaches to address
these questions. Highly motivated and independent researcher who will thrive
in a collaborative environment is encouraged to apply.
A strong background in biochemistry, molecular biology, and/or plant cell
biology is highly desirable. Experience in protein-protein interaction,
native protein purification, and mass spectrometry is a plus. Highly
competitive salary and benefit will be commensurate with experience.
Lee laboratory is housed at the Delaware Biotechnology Institute (
which provides a state-of-the-art infrastructure and a multidisciplinary
research and education environment and is ideally located in the heart of
the East coast between Washington D.C. and New York.
