Position available to study the genetic and developmental basis of
flower diversity in the laboratory of Dr. Verónica Di Stilio at the
University of Washington in Seattle, WA, USA. Research is on the basal
Eudicot genus Thalictrum (Ranunculaceae), using an evolution of
development approach towards understanding morphological
diversification of flowers. Arabidopsis is used as a reference system
for candidate genes and to test gene function. Current focus is on
transcription factors as key regulators of development, in particular
belonging to the MYB and MADS box families, that regulate organ
identity and tissue differentiation in the flower.
Requirements: PhD in Plant Biology, Molecular, cellular developmental
biology or related field. Basic molecular biology and microscopy
skills required. Ability to perform in situ hybridizations, transgenic
techniques, molecular evolution and phylogenetic analyses desired.
Funding is available for 2 years beginning as early as January of
2008. Review of applications will begin immediately and continue until
the position has been filled. Please send CV, research statement and 3
reference contacts to: Verónica Di Stilio, Department of Biology,
University of Washington, Hitchcock Hall 506, Box 351800, Seattle WA
98195-1800. E-mail: distilio from u.washington.edu
