<x-flowed>POSTDOCTORAL POSITION - Receptor Kinase Signalling in Arabidopsis
Department of Botany, University of Toronto, Canada

A postdoctoral position, funded by an NSERC Strategic-Genomics Project
grant, is immediately available to study the biological functions of the
Arabidopsis PERK receptor kinase family (Nakhamchik et al. 2004. A
Comprehensive Expression Analysis of the Arabidopsis Proline-rich
Extensin-like Receptor Kinase Gene Family using Bioinformatic and
Experimental Approaches. Plant Cell Physiol 45:Issue 12; Silva & Goring.
2002. The proline-rich, extensin-like receptor kinase-1 (PERK1) gene is
rapidly induced by wounding. Plant Mol Biol 50:667-685).  The Arabidopsis
PERK family is a novel receptor kinase family with putative biological
functions in regulating growth and floral organ formation (unpublished;
www.botany.utoronto.ca/ResearchLabs/GoringLab/index.html ).  A major focus
of this research project is to unravel specific biological roles for each of
the 15 AtPERK members through analyses of T-DNA insertion lines, and yeast
two-hybrid screens for kinase-interacting proteins.  The Department of
Botany at the University of Toronto has state-of-the-art growth facilities
and molecular biological facilities for conducting all aspects of this

I am looking for a highly motivated individual with a Ph.D. degree and a
demonstrated ability to carry out outstanding research.  Applicants should
have experience in plant molecular biology and genetics or related
disciplines, and preferably some experience in working with Arabidopsis.
Demonstrated written and oral communication skills are also essential
qualifications, as well as the ability to interact and work collaboratively
with others.  The position is available immediately and to apply, please
send your curriculum vitae and the names of three references (address,
phone, fax and e-mail) to Dr. Daphne Goring, Department of Botany,
University of Toronto, 25 Willcocks Street, Toronto, Ontario, Canada M5S
