POSTDOCTORAL OR RESEARCH SCIENTIST/TECH POSITION: ARABIDOPSIS RECEPTOR 
KINASE SIGNALING AND DEVELOPMENT
University of Washington, Seattle

A postdoctoral position (or a research scientist Assistant position) is 
available immediately to investigate receptor kinase signal 
transduction pathways specifying aboveground organ morephogenesis and 
epidermal patterning.

A successful candidate will use integrated approaches of biochemistry, 
imaging, and molecular genetics to investigate how cell-cell signals 
mediated by the Arabidopsis ERECTA-family receptor kinases will 
translate into cell proliferation and cell-type differentiation.

Please see the following greferences:
Guseman et al. (2010) Development 137, 1731-
van Zanten M (2010) Plant Journal 61, 83-
Hara et al. (2009) Plant Cell Physiol 50, 1019-
Hord, C.L.H. et al. (2008) Mol Plant 4, 645-

Shpak et al. (2005) Science 309, 290-
Shpak et al. (2004) Development 131, 1491-

A candidate must be proficient in biochemistry and live imaging 
techniques at tissue-, cellular- or subcellular levels.  Candidates 
with strong quantitative skills are highly desired.  Previous 
experience in Arabidopsis/plants is not required but a plus.  The 
position may be considered for a qualified Research 
Technician/Scientist, who wishes to gain experience before heading for 
the graduate career. A candidate must be strong in communication- and 
analytical skills, focused and motivated, and able to work as a team as 
well as independently.

Salary is commensurate with qualifications and experience (based on the 
NIH scale according to the University Guideline). The position will be 
initially available for one year, with the renewal based on the 
performance and funding availability. The successful candidate will be 
encouraged to apply for independent fellowships.  Due to the guideline 
of the funding agency, preference will be given to candidates within 
two years of postdoctoral experience.

Please send a cover letter (1-2 pages) outlining your research interest 
and career goal, current curriculum vitae, and a name and e-mail 
address of three-four referees to:
