One post-doctoral position is available in the Plant Stress Signaling
group at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência located near Lisbon,
Portugal (http://www.igc.gulbenkian.pt). Starting date February 1st
2009.

Research in the lab focuses on energy signaling and its connection to
environmental changes and growth. The Arabidopsis KIN10 and KIN11
protein kinases play a central role during the stress response and are
required for the proper integration of environmental cues into growth
and development. In order to further dissect and understand the
KIN10/11-mediated signaling cascade, the post-doc will work in one of
the following topics:

1)	Regulatory mechanisms underlying KIN10/11 action, in particular
post-translational modification and subcellular localization
2)	Identification of upstream and downstream components by functional
genomics and yeast-two-hybrid approaches
3)	Identification of novel components of the signaling cascade using a
genetic screen of luciferase reporter plants

Applicants should have a PhD in genetics, biochemistry or molecular
biology, with excellent communication skills and a strong background
in molecular biology and plant physiology. Experience in yeast-two-
hybrid technology or plant genetics and mapping is a plus. Interested
candidates should send CV, brief description of previous research, and
contact information of 3 references to ebaena from igc.gulbenkian.pt.
