PLANT BIOLOGY: Jasmonate signaling, circadian clock regulation, chlorophyll biosynthesis and chloroplast biogenesis
Laboratory of Janet Braam
Biochemistry and Cell Biology
Rice University

A Ph.D. in biological science is required.  A strong background in plant biology, cell biology, biochemistry, and/or genetics is desired.  Research experience in the areas of biotic stress responses and jasmonate signaling, circadian regulation, and/or chloroplast biogenesis and function would be advantageous. Excellent communication skills and an ability and willingness to collaborate are essential. Only highly motivated individuals with proven track records should apply.  Applicants should send a curriculum vitae, a cover letter describing research experience and interests, and the names and email addresses for at least three references to:  braam from rice.edu.

Applications will be reviewed until the position is filled.
Rice University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
