A three-year NSF-funded postdoctoral position is available immediately in the laboratory of Dr. Jean-Michel Ané (http://agronomy.wisc.edu/symbiosis/) to study ion fluxes in response to symbiotic signals using the model legume Medicago truncatula. Relationships with changes in the phosphoproteome and the metabolome will be investigated.
This is a collaborative project of two other laboratories: Dr. Michael Sussman (Biotechnology Center - Genetics - Biochemistry, UW Madison); Dr. Joshua Coon (Chemistry, UW Madison). The successful candidate will take advantage of the collaborative environment between the three research groups.
The candidate must have a Ph.D. with some background in electrophysiology and calcium imaging as well as basic molecular biology, biochemistry and cell biology. Previous experience in a plant system would be appreciated but is not essential. The candidate should have strong oral and written communication skills in English.
If interested, please send (or e-mail) your cover letter, CV, as well as names and e-mail address of three references to:
Dr: Jean-Michel Ané
