A USDA postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Dr. R.
Greg Upchurch in the department of Plant Pathology at North Carolina
State University. The successful candidate will conduct research to
characterize a probable toxin transporter protein that may represent the
first of a new class of efflux-mediated resistance/pathogenicity
determinants from filamentous fungi. Research to date has demonstrated
that a gene from the soybean pathogen Cercospora kikuchii is integrally
related with both production of the photoactivated phytotoxin cercosporin
and for partial auto-resistance tohe toxin. Research will focus on, but
is not limited to, mutational analysis to functionally map the protein.
Epitope tagging will be employed for cellular localization studies.
Working knowledge of:1) molecular biology, including gene cloning, DNA
sequencing, measurement of gene expression, PCR, and deletion and
site-directed mutagenesis and 2) fungal physiology and genetics.
Preference will be given to those who in addition have experience in
protein biochemistry, epitope tagging, and immunofluorescence microscopy.
I am a Ph.D. student in Dr. Upchurch's lab and am posting this position
listing on his behalf. Inquiries made to my email address will be passed
on to him. Otherwise, applications may be submitted to:
Dr. Robert G. Upchurch, USDA?ARS
