Postdoctoral Position
U.S. Plant, Soil and Nutrition Laboratory
Cornell University, Ithaca, New York 14853

A postdoctoral position is available immediately to study the molecular
biology and cellular physiology of K+ transport in higher plants. We have
cloned a series of plant K+ transporters and are currently studying these
transporters in order to better understand the mechanisms and regulation of
K+ transport into and within the plant. The successful candidate will join
the laboratory of Dr. Leon Kochian at Cornell University and will be involved
in collaborative research with the laboratory of Dr. William Lucas at the
University of California, Davis. Research to be undertaken entails the
characterization of these transporters using classical molecular methods
and heterologous expression systems (e.g. Xenopus oocytes and yeast). The
applicant must have expertise in fundamental molecular biological techniques
such as Northern analysis, DNA sequencing, gene cloning techniques, PCR, and
plant transformation. Additionally, experience in site-directed mutagenesis,
in situ hybridization, fusion protein methodologies or antisense analysis is
highly desirable. Salary will be commensurate with experience. Applicants
should send their curriculum vitae, a letter describing their research
experience and interests, and the names and phone numbers of three references
to Dr. Leon Kochian, U.S. Plant, Soil and Nutrition Laboratory, Cornell
University, Ithaca, NY 14853; phone number: 607-255-2454; Fax: 607-255-2459;
 Email address: lvk1 at cornell.edu.
