Senior scientist or postdoctoral position in plant development at the RIKEN
Plant Science Center

A senior scientist or postdoctoral position is available immediately in the
laboratory of Dr Keiko Sugimoto at the RIKEN Plant Science Center, Yokohama,
Japan. The Sugimoto Lab has recently identified a novel SUMO E3 ligase HIGH
PLOIDY 2 and a trihelix transcription factor GTL1 as a key regulator of
plant cell growth (see Ishida et al 2009, Plant Cell online published;
Breuer et al 2009, Plant Cell online published). The successful candidate
will join the multidisciplinary research programme to elucidate how these
regulatory proteins mediate plant growth and development using Arabidopsis
as a model system. For further information on our research programme, please
see our lab website (http://labs2.psc.riken.jp/cfru/English/index.html).

Applications should have a PhD with a strong background in molecular
biology, genetics and cell biology/biochemistry. Special preferences are
given to candidates with a prior research experience in plant developmental
biology. A senior scientist should have 5-year-research experience as a
postdoctoral scientist in related disciplines. Initial appointment is until
March 2010 and the position is renewable up to 2013 depending on
satisfactory performance. For further information on these posts, please see
the RIKEN website

RIKEN Plant Science Center is one of the leading research institutes in
plant biology in Japan. The Center is part of the RIKEN Yokohama Institute
(http://www.yokohama.riken.jp/english/index.html) which offers
state-of-the-art core facilities in transcriptome, proteome and metabolome

To apply for the post, please send by email (a) cover letter describing your
research interests and previous research experiences, (b) CV, (c) list of
publications, (d) a reference letter to Keiko Sugimoto
(sugimoto from psc.riken.jp).
