Hi,

Could you please post this to the news group?

A three-year postdoctoral position to study floral developmental 
genetics is available as of August 1 2007 in the laboratory of Elena 
Kramer in the department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology at 
Harvard University, Cambridge MA. The project involves the use of the 
lower eudicot genus Aquilegia as a model to understand the evolution 
of the floral organ identity genetic program.  Our lab is part of a 
larger collaborative group that has developed a range of genetic & 
genomic tools for Aquilegia, including an EST database, 
oligonucleotide arrays, integrated genetic and physical genome maps, 
and reverse genetic techniques (see Gould and Kramer 2007 and Kramer 
et al. 2007).

Responsibilities of the successful candidate will include conducting 
reverse genetic studies of floral organ identity gene function, using 
laser capture microdissection to investigate the divergence of 
developmental pathways in stamens and staminodia, and using 
microarray-based studies to identify candidates for petal spur and 
nectary specification. Development of additional areas of interest 
within the scope of the project is encouraged.  Candidates must have 
strong backgrounds in genetics and molecular biology. Prior 
experience with plant biology is desirable, but not essential.

Applications should include a cover letter detailing research 
interests and experience, a curriculum vitae, and the names of three 
references. Applications should be sent as single PDF files to Dr. 
Elena Kramer at ekramer from oeb.harvard.edu, with the subject line 
AQUILEGIA POSTDOC. Review of applications will begin immediately and 
will continue until the position is filled.

Harvard University is an Equal Opportunity Employer.

Thanks!

Elena Kramer
