Dear Chlamy people,
I previously posted this postdoc ad to the Chlamy network (and
other places) and although I've gotten a number of applications from people
working on plants and cyanobacteria, no one has applied that has a Chlamy
background, which is what I'd prefer. Therefore, I thought I'd post this
again. If you have any hot prospects, please encourage them to apply.
OPEN POSTDOCTORAL POSITION TO STUDY CIRCADIAN CLOCKS
A postdoctoral position is available February-March, 1998 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,
cyanobacteria and archebacteria is likely. 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: The person I am looking
for is someone with molecular background using Chlamydomonas who wants to
continue work with Chlamy while at the same time diversifying to other
systems and who finds biological clocks to be a fascinating topic.
