A Postdoctoral Scientist Position at the Plant Sciences Center, RIKEN
Yokohama Institute 


A postdoctoral scientist position is available from April 2008 to study the
size and ploidy control in plants. The successful candidate will
characterize novel loss-of-function or gain-of-function mutants in
Arabidopsis that display various developmental defects associated with
ploidy. The research will be conducted in Keiko Sugimoto's lab
(http://labs.psc.riken.jp/cfru/English/index.html) at the RIKEN Plant
Science Center situated in Yokohama, Japan. RIKEN Plant Science Center has
state-of-the-art facilities for genome, proteome and metabolome research.  


Applicants should have a PhD in plant molecular biology, developmental
genetics, or cell biology. Experience in Arabidopsis molecular genetics or
cell biology is highly desirable. This post is for up to 3 years, pending on
the annual assessment. Please visit the RIKEN website for further detail.

Applicants are also encouraged to seek for their own funding through, for
example, the RIKEN postdoctoral fellowship program, JSPS postdoctoral
fellowship program, and human frontier science program. 


Please send a curriculum vitae, a brief summary of previous research, a
statement of research interests and a letter of reference to:
