Postdoctoral Positions in Cytokinin Signal Transduction


Full Description:
Postdoctoral positions are currently available in the laboratory of  
Dr. G. Eric Schaller (Dartmouth College) to work on USDA and NSF  
funded projects in cytokinin signal transduction. The USDA project  
focuses on the role of the type-B response regulators, which act in  
the final step of the cytokinin signaling pathway to regulate the  
transcriptional response to cytokinin. The NSF 2010 project focuses  
on defining the network of interactions by which cytokinin regulates  
plant growth and development, and includes the analysis of additional  
transcription factors as well as proteins interacting with the  
primary signaling pathway. Opportunities exist to extend research  
from Arabidopsis into rice. Opportunities also exist to participate  
in a multi-institutional collaborative research environment, as we  
share periodic group meetings with the Kieber lab of North Carolina.  
Successful applicants should be highly motivated, be capable of  
working independently, and have a relevant PhD. Experience in some or  
all of the following disciplines is desirable: genetics in model  
systems, molecular biology, and/or biochemistry. I will be available  
to discuss these projects at the ASPB meeting in Chicago and the  
IPGSA meeting in Mexico.
