A postdoctoral position is available in Dr. Haiyang Wang's laboratory 
at the Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, Cornell 
Research in the Wang laboratory is primarily focused on understanding 
signaling mechanisms mediating light control of plant development 
using Arabidopsis as a model system. We take multidisciplinary 
approaches, including genetics, molecular biology, cell biology, 
biochemistry, and genomics, to identify light signaling molecules, 
and to elucidate their biochemical and cellular mechanisms in 
transmitting perceived light information to regulate target gene 
expression and plant photomorphogenic development (see Yang et al., 
2005a, Plant Cell 17, 804-821; Yang et al., 2005b, Plant J. 43, 
131-141; Lin and Wang, 2004, Plant Physiol. 136, 4010-4022.). More 
information about the Wang lab can be found at 
Requirements: A recent Ph.D (within the past five years) in the 
fields of plant biology, genetics, molecular biology or biochemistry. 
Training in basic molecular skills (nuclear acids and protein 
isolation, Southern, Northern and Western blot, PCR, genotyping, 
plasmid construction etc.) is required. Prior experience in cell 
biology skills (familiar with various types of microscopes) or 
biochemistry (protein expression and purification, gel filtration, 
DNA-protein interaction etc.) will be a big plus.  Individuals with 
strong self-motivation, team-work spirit and good communication 
skills are highly preferred.
         To apply: send a cover letter summarizing your research 
interests, experience, and achievements, a CV and names of three 
references to Haiyang Wang (hw75 at cornell.edu). Please indicate in 
your cover letter the job code BTI #2006-05.
          The Boyce Thompson Institute (BTI) is a private non-profit 
research organization located on the campus of Cornell University, 
Ithaca, New York. BTI is an equal opportunity employer.
