Postdoctoral Position in Arabidopsis Flower Development

A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of 
Dr. Tom Jack (Dartmouth College) to work on an NSF-funded 
project on genes that control the growth of the floral 
organs in Arabidopsis.  Specifically, we are studying the 
role of two genes that are necessary for proper growth of 
petals and stamens.  The first is DORNR?SCHEN-LIKE, which 
encodes an AP2-domain transcription factor (see Plant Mol. 
Biol. 65, 219 (2007)).  The second is microRNA319a, which 
is necessary for proper growth of both petals and stamens 
(see Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 106, 22534 (2009)). The 
successful applicant will become a member of vibrant group 
of researchers at Dartmouth that focus on plant biology 
and developmental biology. The successful applicant should 
be highly motivated and be capable of working 
independently.  Experience in some or all of the following 
disciplines is desirable: genetics in model systems, 
molecular biology, developmental biology, and/or 
biochemistry. 

Application Instructions: Please send a letter of 
application describing research background, a CV, and the 
names and contact information for three references to Tom 
Jack at Dartmouth College, Dept. of Biology, Hanover, NH 
03755 or by email to thomas.p.jack from dartmouth.edu.
