Two full time postdoctoral associate positions are available in the 
laboratory of Dr. Vivian Irish, Dept. of Molecular, Cellular and 
Developmental Biology, Yale University.

Arabidopsis petal development:  The successful candidate will employ 
a variety of molecular genetic techniques and modeling approaches to 
elucidate the dynamics of transcriptional networks controlling petal 
organogenesis.  Applicants should have experience in Arabidopsis 
molecular genetics, QTL analyses, and/or systems biology.

Comparative analyses of flower and fruit development: The successful 
candidate will examine the changing roles of key transcription 
factors in regulating flower and fruit formation.  This project will 
focus on utilizing genetically tractable members of the Solanaceae, 
and tomato in particular. Applicants should have experience in 
molecular genetics and phylogenetic analyses.  

For either position, a Ph.D. degree in molecular genetics, plant 
biology, or related field is required.  Interested applicants should 
send a C.V., list of publications, brief summary of research 
experience and future goals, and names and addresses of three 
referees by email to Vivian Irish (Vivian.irish from yale.edu).  Review of 
applications will begin immediately and continue until positions are 
filled. For further information on the lab interests, please see
