Postdoctoral Position
Department of Biology and Program in Molecular Plant Biology
Colorado State University, Fort Collins, CO 80523

A postdoctoral position is available in the Department of Biology and 
Program in Molecular Plant Biology to study nuclear pre-mRNA 
processing and its regulation in plants. A Ph.D. in plant molecular 
biology or a related field is required. Applicants must have 
experience in standard biochemical and molecular techniques. 
Experience with functional genomics approaches (reverse genetics, 
microarrays and proteomics) and bioinformatics tools is desirable. 
The successful candidate will develop and apply new and existing 
techniques to isolate protein complexes involved in pre-mRNA 
splicing, identify components of these complexes using proteomic 
approaches and identify mRNA targets of serine/arginine-rich 
proteins.  This project will provide opportunities to perform global 
studies using high throughput technologies involving next generation 
of sequencing technologies. The incumbent will have an opportunity to 
participate in other ongoing projects in the laboratory and is 
expected to interact with other post-docs, graduate and undergraduate 
students in the laboratory. Lab publications in pre-mRNA splicing 
area include: Annu. Rev. Plant Biol. 58: 267-294 (2007); Plant J. 49: 
1091-1107 (2007); PLoS ONE, 5: e471, Pages 1-13 (2007); BMC Genomics 
10: 9:159; pages 1-11 (2008); J. Cell Sci. 119: 3527-3538 (2006); 
Trends in Plant Science 9: 541-547 (2004); Plant. J. 36: 883-893 
(2003); J. Biol. Chem. 274: 36428-36438(1999); Plant Cell 10: 
1637-1647 (1998); Plant Cell 8: 1421-1435 (1996).  For more 
information on our ongoing research projects and other publications

with qualifications and research experience.  Please send (preferably 
by e-mail) curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research 
experience, and three references to:
