  	A postdoctoral position is available to study the relation 
between cell wall structure and morphogenesis. The project uses the 
emerging model grass, Brachypodium distachyon, and both forward and 
reverse genetic approaches. The forward genetic approach will be a 
screen for mutants with aberrant root morphology; the reverse genetic 
approach will be to inactivate genes that are known to be important 
in other species. The position requires a Ph.D. in a relevant area of 
biology and preference will be given to candidates having experience 
with any of the following: developmental genetics; cell wall 
analysis; microscopy. The Baskin lab participates actively in the 
University of Massachusetts-Amherst Interdisciplinary Program in 
Plant Biology and also in a new cluster of scientists on campus 
working on B. distachyon. The University of Massachusetts is an Equal 
Opportunity Employer and I encourage all qualified persons to apply. 
To apply, please send your cv to baskin from bio.umass.edu. Check
