Postdoctoral Position
Vanderbilt University
Nashville, Tennessee, USA

A postdoctoral position is available December 1, 1997 to study the
molecular and cellular basis of circadian rhythmicity. We are studying
circadian clocks in a variety of photosynthetic organisms including
cyanobacteria (Mole. Microbiol. 21: 5-11, 1996; Annu. Rev. Plant Physiol.
Plant Mole. Biol. 48: 327-354, 1997), Chlamydomonas (Plant Mole. Biol. 31:
1173-1184, 1996), and higher plants (Science 269: 1863-65, 1995). The
candidate will focus on the characterization of previously isolated
insertional mutants of the circadian clock of Chlamydomonas, but
diversification to studies in other organisms including higher plants and
archebacteria may be possible. Salary will be consistent with the NIH
scale. Support for this position comes from an NSF grant that comes up for
renewal on March 31, 1999, but the position will be continued if the grant
is renewed and/or the candidate can apply for their own postdoctoral
fellowship after beginning the project. Preferred: experience with
molecular genetic techniques in Chlamydomonas or higher plants. Interested
applicants should send a current CV including the names of three references
to: Carl Johnson, Dept. of Biology, Box 1812-B, Vanderbilt University,
Nashville, TN  37235 USA; email: JohnsonC at ctrvax.vanderbilt.edu; website:
