POSTDOCTORAL POSITION
University of California, Riverside


A postdoctoral position is available immediately for research on
elucidation of the Mi-mediated signal transduction pathways.  The tomato
gene, Mi, mediates resistance to two distinct organisms, nematodes and an
aphid. We have identified several mutants in the nematode resistance
pathway. One of these mutants, rme1, completely abolishes resistance to
both nematodes and the potato aphid (Plant J. 27:417-425). The position
involves mapping and cloning of Rme1 and continuing screens for additional
mutants in the pathway.

Applicants should have experience in genetics and molecular biology,
however, prior work with nematodes or plants is not required. A cover
letter describing research interests, a curriculum vita and names of three
references should be sent to the address listed below.
