*Post-doctoral and research technician positions* (2-3) are available to 
investigate the plant circadian clock in the new Division of Integrative 
Biosciences and Biotechnology at Pohang University of Science and 
Technology (POSTECH) in Pohang, South Korea.

The successful applicants for these positions will be involved the 
establishment of a new laboratory in newly renovated research space with 
research opportunities to study post-translational processes, in 
particular phosphorylation, controlling the circadian system in 
Arabidopsis. There will also be the opportunity to initiate new genetic 
screens probing into the fundamental properties of the circadian clock. 
The lab will be housed in a building sharing growth facilities and other 
resources with excellent, well-established plant molecular groups at 
POSTECH, along with newly established labs in membrane biophysics and 
chemical biology of protein-protein and lipid-protein interactions.

This is an excellent opportunity for Korean nationals interested in 
initiating a career path in plant science in South Korea, but is not 
limited to such individuals. Expertise in biochemistry, proteomics and 
molecular biology is highly desirable. Previous experience with 
Arabidopsis research is not a requirement, but very useful. Ability to 
work independently and coordinately will be an important asset. Highly 
motivated individuals with excellent English and Korean language and 
communication skills are strongly encouraged to apply.

These positions are available in early March 2010, but there is the 
possibility of preliminary training and orientation at Ohio State 
University prior to positioning at POSTECH. Starting yearly salary for 
post-docs will be 25,000,000 KRW to 35,000,000KRW depending on 
experience; 20,000,000 to 25,000,000 KRW for technicians.

Interested applicants should send inquires and their CV, a statement of 
research interests and career goals to the below address. Email 
attachments are preferred.
