[Arabidopsis] Postdoctoral Position, U. C. Davis

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. Charles 
Gasser in the Section of Molecular and Cellular Biology at the 
University of California, Davis.

The position is to study the nature and function of a recently 
identified family of Arabidopsis DNA-binding proteins.  The BASIC 
PENTACYSTEINE (BPC) proteins have been shown to bind DNA in a 
sequence-specific manner and are implicated in participating in the 
expression of a variety of other genes (Meister et al., 2004, Plant 
J. 37: 426-438).  Analysis of mutants, in vivo and in vitro target 
selection, assessment of gene expression in transgenic plants, 
chromatin immunoprecipitation, and in vitro and in vivo analysis of 
protein-DNA interactions will be some of the methods that will be 
used in these studies.  Experience in protein-nucleic acid 
interactions in any system, plant molecular biology, plant 
developmental genetics, or plant biochemistry are appropriate 
preparation for this position.  Those with experience in 
transcription factor analysis are especially encouraged to apply, but 
such experience is not a prerequisite for the position.

The University of California, Davis provides an excellent environment 
for the study of plant biology due to a large, diverse and 
interactive community of plant biologists.

To apply, please send current curriculum vitae and contact 
information for three references via e-mail to csgasser at ucdavis.edu. 
Or for more information contact Dr. Gasser by e-mail or by phone at
