Post-doctoral research associate.  A plant molecular biology lab focused
on the cloning and molecular characterization of ion channels and
transporters seeks a scientist trained in standard molecular
techniques.  The research program could involve methods related to
library screening, DNA sequencing, subcloning and expression of plant
cDNAs in mutant yeast and bacterial systems, plant transformation, RNA
isolation, antibody production, PCR-RACE, Southern and Northern
analysis, and in vitro translation.  Our laboratory has recently
identified a number of novel genes encoding plant ion channels.  We
currently have expertise related to the heterologous expression of ion
channel genes in Xenopus laevis frog oocytes for electrophysiological
(voltage clamp) analysis of induced ion currents.  This research program
provides an excellent opportunity for someone experienced in molecular
biology to develop expertise in ion channel gene characterization.
