 Dear Webmaster,

Please post this position where interested members can view it.

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Stony Brook University is seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate to 
work in the Biology Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory. The 
successful candidate will be working on exploring the molecular basis for 
the transport and deposition of cell wall lignin precursors and the 
related “wall-bound” phenolics.  Responsibilities include 1) screening and 
identifying the potential membrane-bound transporter genes from 
Arabidopsis and other related species by using bioinformatics analysis, in 
silico and qRT-PCR based gene transcription profiling and reverse genetic 
studies, 2) developing and applying in vitro screening and assay systems 
to assess the biochemical functions of the identified transporter 
proteins; 3) evaluating and characterizing the biological functions of the 
selected membrane-bound transporters using the “loss-and gain- of 
function” strategies.  In addition, he or she needs to assist in 
supervising the periodic research activities of undergraduates, summer 
interns and/or high school students involved in this project, & will 
respond for summarizing & reporting the data to the PI. 
A Ph.D. in Plant Biochemistry and Molecular Biology or a related field is 
desired. The candidate should have profound hand-on experiences and skills 
in molecular genetics and biochemical studies and have a proved record of 
publication(s). Experience in the isolation, purification and 
reconstitution of cell membranes, expression of membrane proteins, and 
chemical analysis of plant cell wall compositions are desirable, and 
knowledge in cell biology and plant secondary metabolisms, particularly, 
on the biosynthesis of plant phenolics and polyphenolics is a plus. 

Those interested should send a resume and three references to Dr. 
Chang-Jun Liu, Scientist in Brookhaven National Laboratory, P.O. Box 5000, 
Upton, New York 11973-5000; or email to or cliu from bnl.gov . For a full 
position description, or to apply on-line, visit www.stonybrook.edu/jobs.
