PLANT ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSES: CELL WALL MODIFICATION AND CALCIUM
Laboratory of Janet Braam
Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology
A postdoctoral position is available to participate in research
focused on determining the mechanisms by which plants sense
environmental stresses, interpret calcium signals, and regulate
cellular and organismal responses. Integrative approaches to
elucidate the physiological and cellular functions of the xyloglucan
endotransglucosylase/hydrolase (XTH) and the calmodulin-like gene
families of Arabidopsis are underway. See: http://www.bioc.rice.edu/
~braam/projects/index.html for more information.
A strong background in plant biology, molecular biology, biochemistry
and genetics is desired. Only highly motivated individuals with
proven track records should apply. Applicants should send a
curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing research experience and
interests, and the names and email addresses for at least three
references to: braam from rice.edu.
