Postdoctoral Position: Arabidopsis circadian clock

A* Post-doctoral position* is available immediately 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 applicant will help establish 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.

Expertise in biochemistry, proteomics and molecular biology is highly 
desirable, but not required. 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 language and communication 
skills are strongly encouraged to apply.

Starting yearly salary will be 25,000,000 KRW to 35,000,000KRW depending 
on experience.

Interested applicants should send inquires and their CV, a statement of 
research interests and career goals, to:

Dr. David E. Somers

Department of Plant Cellular and Molecular Biology

Ohio State University/Division of Integrative Biosciences and Biotechnology
