> POSTDOCTORAL POSITIONS AVAILABLE
> 
> Functional genomics/molecular genetics
> of Phytophthora infestans
> 
> Postdoctoral associates are sought to study Phytophthora infestans,
the
> oomycete fungus that causes the late blight diseases of potato and
tomato.
> P. infestans is one of the world's most important plant pathogens,
with a
> direct economic impact exceeding $5 billion per year.
> 
> The successful applicants will join projects aimed at identifying and
> characterizing genes important in the growth and development of P.
> infestans, with an emphasis on sexual and asexual sporulation.  The
> projects involve constructing cDNA libraries; identifying genes of
interest
> from an EST catalogue and an expression profiling database (for
example,
> microarrays); and characterizing the regulation and function of
genes by
> manipulating their expression in P. infestans transformants and other
> strategies.  Funding for these positions are available for up to 3
years.
> 
> The laboratory is located at the Riverside campus of the University of
> California, which is situated in a dynamic region of southern
California.
> Additional information about the laboratory is available at
> http://cnas.ucr.edu/~ppath/faculty/hj.html.
> 
> Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and demonstrated
> skill in cDNA library construction and/or gene analysis techniques. 
A good
> command of written and spoken English is required.  Experience with
> filamentous fungi is NOT required and scientists with training in
other
> systems (plants, etc.) are encouraged to apply.
> 
> To apply, send a curriculum vitae and the names of three references
> (including addresses and telephone numbers) to the addresses shown
below.
