Postdoctoral Opportunity in the Nusinow Laboratory at the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center.

We are currently looking to fill an opening beginning March 1st, 2012 for a motivated and enthusiastic scientist to work on uncovering the molecular mechanisms by which the circadian clock interfaces with environmental signaling to regulate growth and development in plants. We combine genetic, biochemical, molecular, proteomic and genomic methods in the model plant Arabidopsis to gain deep understanding of the components that connect the circadian oscillator to specific output networks. Ideal candidates would be interested in circadian biology, plant physiology and development, possess a Ph.D. in either genetics, biochemistry, cell, developmental, plant or molecular biology. Candidates should also be familiar with the application of methods such as: real time quantitative PCR, chromatin immunoprecipitation, protein expression and purification, mass spectrometry, genetic analysis, bioluminescent reporters and non-invasive imaging, molecular biology techniques, and methods in plant physiology. Experience with plants is expected, but exceptional candidates with an interest in plants should also apply. 

The international and interdisciplinary research environment at the Danforth Center offers an excellent opportunity for career development. Salaries are competitive and commensurate with experience, and the Danforth Center offers an excellent benefits package including medical and 403B matching. The Danforth Center is currently ranked in the top ten of places to work in scientific research. 

Please send a current CV, list of at least three contacts for recommendation, and a cover letter that includes a statement of past research experience and future interests to:
