MOLECULAR MECHANISMS OF PLASTID DIVISION

A postdoctoral position is available immediately to investigate the
molecular mechanisms of chloroplast division in higher plants. Studies
will center on the role of a newly discovered gene from Arabidopsis called
cpFtsZ (Nature 376: 473-474) in the plastid division process. cpFtsZ is a
nuclear-encoded, chloroplast-localized homologue of a key bacterial cell
division protein, and is the first gene isolated from any eukaryote with a
probable function in organelle replication. Experience in molecular
techniques essential. Experience in light or electron microscopy or
biochemical techniques helpful but not essential. Salary $23,000 to
$26,000 commensurate with experience, plus benefits. Reno is located just
east of the Sierra Nevada Mountains about 40 minutes from Lake Tahoe and
offers outstanding recreational opportunities, spectacular scenery, and a
near-perfect climate. San Francisco is 4 hours to the west. Please send CV,
brief statement of research experience, and the names of three referees,
including addresses, phone/fax numbers and email addresses to:
Dr. Katherine Osteryoung, Department of Biology/314, University of Nevada,
Reno, NV 89557. Phone (702) 784-6258, Fax (702) 784-1650, email

Action/Equal Opportunity
employer.
