Two postdoctoral positions are available in the laboratory of Roger =20
Innes to study the molecular mechanisms that mediate disease =20
resistance in plants.  These positions are funded by two different NIH =20=

grants.  The first focuses on the RPS5 disease resistance protein of =20
Arabidopsis, which mediates detection of the AvrPphB protein from =20
Pseudomonas syringae.  RPS5 belongs to the NBS-LRR superfamily of =20
resistance proteins.  Current questions under investigation are how =20
RPS5 is activated and, once activated, how RPS5 triggers plant defense =20=

responses.  The second project focuses on the regulation of programmed =20=

cell death during pathogen infections, with an emphasis on =20
understanding endomembrane trafficking and possible links to =20
autophagy.  Additional information about these projects and the Innes =20=

Laboratory, including publications, can be found at =

.

Applicants should have a Ph.D. in biology or related field and =20
extensive experience in molecular biology, protein biochemistry, and/=20
or cell biology.  Familiarity with confocal microcopy is required.  =20
Salary commensurate with education and experience with full benefits =20
included.  Applications received before May 30, 2010 will be given =20
