Postdoctoral Research Position: Rice molecular biology
Dept of Plant Sciences, University of Cambridge, UK

A three year postdoctoral position is now available to develop large
numbers of enhancer trap lines of rice (see
http://www.plantsci.cam.ac.uk/Haseloff/Home.html). These will be used
immediately in our laboratories to mark specific cell types with the green
fluorescent protein, misexpress genes involved in solute transport in
specific cell-types such as Na+ transporters, and also provide a resource
for the academic community. The successful applicant will join the groups
of Mark Tester and Julian Hibberd, and work in close collaboration with
Jim Haseloff. Initial rice transformations will be performed with Emmanuel
Guiderdoni in Montpellier, France.
The project is funded by the BBSRC. Applicants must have a Ph.D. and
experience in plant transformation and molecular biology. Salary will be
on the age-dependent research associate scale. Applications, including a
CV and names of three referees, should be sent to Dr Mark Tester: e-mail
reception at plantsci.cam.ac.uk.

The University is an equal opportunity employer.
