=0A=
An NSF funded postdoctoral fellow position is available to=0A=
work on the mechanisms of plant cell death control by a family of conserved=
=0A=
cysteine proteases called metacaspase.  Recent=0A=
genetic and biochemical studies have demonstrated the involvement of some=
=0A=
members of this protease family in regulating cell death activation by=0A=
oxidative stresses=2C and the importance of posttranslational mechanisms fo=
r=0A=
regulating their activity in vitro and in planta.  Molecular=2C genetic and=
 biochemical approaches=0A=
will be deployed to further dissect the structural basis of these regulator=
y=0A=
functions.  In addition=2C a novel=0A=
RNA-display technology will be used to delineate the Arabidopsis degradome=
=0A=
candidates downstream from metacaspases. =0A=
Applicants should have a recent PhD in molecular genetics=0A=
