*Postdoctoral Positions in Plant Proteomics and Biochemistry*
A postdoctoral position is available starting this summer or autumn in 
Dr. Sixue Chen's laboratory at the Genetics Institute, University of 
Florida, USA. The overall goal of the research project is to 
characterize regulatory and metabolic pathway networks involving 
glucosinolate metablism utilizing multi-disciplinary functional genomics 
tools, including molecular biology, biochemistry, proteomics, 
bioinformatics and statistics. Detailed understanding of pathway 
interactions is essential for targeted engineering of plant secondary 
metabolites (http://www.botany.ufl.edu/Faculty/faculty_chen.htm). The 
main objectives for this position will be to use comparative proteomics 
coupled with mass spectrometry to identify suites of proteins that are 
differentially expressed in different glucosinolate related signaling 
and metabolic mutants and to correlate/cluster proteins into pathways 
and interacting networks. The laboratory is well-equipped for general 
molecular biology, biochemical and proteomics research. Specialist 
proteomics equipment in the Chen laboratory includes high resolution gel 
electrophoresis systems, HPLC and a 4000QTRAP MS/MS system. This 
position is for individuals capable of conducting independent research 
in the field of proteomics, molecular biology and biochemistry with 
emphasis on plant secondary metabolism. A Ph.D. in biochemistry, 
molecular biology or related discipline, a sound 
understanding/experience in mass spectrometry and protein analysis, and 
an enthusiasm/dedication for basic scientific research are required. 
Good written and verbal communication skills, and experience with 
large-scale data analysis, bioinformatics or statistics would be 
advantageous. Applicants should submit a CV, a short description of  
research experience and three references (including phone and email 
addresses) by email to Dr. Sixue Chen (schen at ufl.edu).
