Postdoctoral Position in Fungal Developmental Genetics:
A position is available beginning July 1, 2000 for a person interested
in molecular genetic mechanisms that control initiation of the
asexual/sexual reproductive cycles and the morphogenesis of
multicellular structures in the filamentous fungus Aspergillus nidulans.
The person hired will contribute a leading role in one of the current
projects that are directed toward identifying and characterizing
components of the signal transduction pathway(s) and the transcriptional
regulators that control reproductive development. The latter include
characterization of 1) the APSES protein StuAp, a regulator of
development- and cell cycle-specific genes; 2) SteAp (Ste12p-like), a
homeodomain-C2/H2-Zn+2 finger protein required for sexual reproduction
and 3) the identification of novel proteins interacting with StuAp and
SteAp. Interested individuals should have training in molecular biology
or genetics Prior research experience with yeast or filamentous fungi
is desirable, but not required. Send CV and three letters of reference
to Dr. Bruce L. Miller, Dept. of Micro., Mol. Biol. & Biochem., Life
Sciences Bldg., University of Idaho, Moscow, ID 83844-3052.
