A postdoctoral position is available starting in October 2008 or  
later in the lab of Christian Hardtke at the Department of Plant  
Molecular Biology, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. Our  
department offers excellent research infrastructure combined with a  
lively, interactive and international scientific community, located  
in the beautiful Lake Geneva region.

This position is funded by the University of Lausanne and includes a  
light teaching load (supervision and partial preparation of a  
practical, B.Sc. level lab course once per year). The candidate is  
expected to build on recent progress in our lab along the lines of  
one of our main projects:

1. Biochemical and cell biological analysis of transcriptional and  
post-translational hormonal control of the BRX family and interacting  
proteins in Arabidopsis development (building on Mouchel et al,  
Nature, 2006; & recent progress).

2. Molecular genetic analysis of natural variation in secondary  
growth of the Arabidopsis vasculature (building on Sibout et al.,  
Current Biology, 2008; & recent progress).

3. Investigation of the impact of natural structural genome variation  
on plant performance (building on Shindo et al., New Phytologist, in  
press; & recent progress). This project requires a pronounced  
interest and ideally demonstrated expertise in bioinformatics  
approaches.

More details about the individual projects are available upon request.

Strongly motivated candidates with demonstrated expertise in  
molecular techniques are encouraged to apply.

Please forward applications including a curriculum vitae and contact  
information for two senior scientist referees by e-mail to  
christian.hardtke from unil.ch.
