A post-doctoral position is available to work on microRNA 
biochemistry and physiology. Current work is on characterizing the 
role of the Hyl1 complex in microRNA biogenesis through analysis of 
the proteins and in vitro and in vivo assays using purified proteins. 
Requirements:  experience in protein purification and expression in 
heterologous systems, as well as a full range of molecular cloning 
and plant transformation techniques; good spoken and written language 
skills; a track record in independent design and performance of 
research.
