POSTDOCTORAL POSITION AVAILABLE:  Functional genomics/molecular 
genetics of Phytophthora infestans

1-2 postdoctoral associates are sought to study Phytophthora 
infestans, the oomycete (fungal-like organism) that causes the late 
blight diseases of potato and tomato.

The successful applicants will join projects aimed at identifying and 
characterizing genes important in plant infection and sporulation. 
The work will involve constructing cDNA libraries; identifying genes 
of interest from an EST catalogue; and characterizing gene regulation 
and function by manipulating their expression in transformants of  P. 
infestans.   This is an excellent opportunity to gain additional 
experience in molecular biology and bioinformatics, while working on 
one of the world's most important plant pathogens.

Multiyear funding is available (2-3 years).  Additional information 
about the laboratory and department is available at: 
http://cnas.ucr.edu/~ppath/faculty/hj.html.

Applicants must have a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline and  skill in 
molecular biology.  A  command of written and spoken English is 
required.  Experience with filamentous fungi is not required, and 
scientists with training in other systems (plants, etc.) are welcome 
to apply.

Contact information for applications and questions is listed below. 
To apply, send a curriculum vitae and the names of three references 
(including addresses and telephone numbers)  Please label email 
attachments with your last name!
