A post-doctoral position is available in the Department of Plant  
Biology of the University of Geneva for a candidate with a strong  
background in molecular biology and biochemistry. Ideally, the  
candidate is also familiar with the Arabidopsis plant model system.

The project involves the study of the control of seed germination and  
early growth by the phytohormones abscisic acid (ABA) and gibberellic  
acid (GA). The work will involve the molecular genetic  
characterization of key players in this process as well as the  
identification of new ones (Lopez-Molina et al. Genes Dev. 2003 17(3): 
410; Lopez-Molina et al. Plant J 2002 32(3):317; Lopez-Molina et al.  
PNAS 2001 98(8):4782).
The laboratory is located in Sciences III, a brand new building that  
hosts, in addition to the Department of Plant Biology, the  
Departments of Animal Biology, Molecular Biology and Cell Biology.  
The department has State-of-the-art research facilities and full time  
staff responsible for the maintenance of plant growth chambers and  
equipment.
To apply, please email a curriculum vitae as well as names and  
contact information of three references to:
